Retin A Micro Week 12

Posted by bluebelleyes, 16 February 2014 · 369 views

This is the end of my updates on this product for now, because I've started on Accutane.
I tried continuing to use the retin-a micro while on Accutane, but I'm a couple weeks in and it's just making my skin wayyy to dry now. I tried spot treating with a hydrating salicylic acid lotion and saw dramatic improvements in my skin almost immediately. The retin-...

I'm SO excited to be writing this,
I've been waiting for this day for 3 years.
I've tried the Regimen, two types of birth control, antibiotics, retin-A micro, and countless other over-the counter oral/topical drugs for for my acne, and they just haven't been enough. So, at the advice of my dermatologist, I start my new journey tomorrow on Epuris, a form o...

My right cheek is clear. Clear. CLEAR.

Retin-A Micro Week 7

Posted by bluebelleyes, 14 January 2014 · 483 views

Over the last couple weeks I've tried adding in a few other acne fighting products back into my routine. I tried tea tree oil, benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, and a witch hazel/aloe vera toner. It's not going well. The products just make my skin peel more.
A story for youuu : My boyfriend took me out to a lovely dinner at a nice restaurant...

Reti-A Micro Week 5

Posted by bluebelleyes, 31 December 2013 · 290 views

Aaah, I can't believe it's been five weeks already! 
The time flew by.
So on the packaging insert it suggests that results probably wont show for at least a month, in which time your skin condition may worsen. My skin definitely needs more time than a month to adjust to this beast.

Acne Is A Disease.

I've always been terrified at the thought of Accutane. I've done extensive research; read countless articles, watched the videos, seen the photos, read the horror stories, read the success stories, interviewed everyone I know who's taken it, read blogs, forums, etc. 
I'm a health nut. I like to know exactly what's going into my body. I'm a hug...

Hello lovelies,
So...remember when I said that so far I had zero redness or irritation from using Retin-A micro 0.04%?
Watch me now eat my words.

I watched my skin turn from...

Hello my lovelies, http://www.acne.org/...fault/smile.png
So I had to go to the dermatologist to get a giant mole removed...
And while I was there I talked to him about my acne.
He immediately recommended that I start accutane, unless I want to keep breaking out until I'm 50 like my mother. 
I'm a bit traum...
