So i have been using differin for 5 days now and my face is definitely worse! The first time I used differin my face didn't start breaking out until the third week of using it. I also have exams right now, so that's probably not helping either. I've been getting really big pustules all over my face, mainly on the sides, jaw and chin area. My face is also a little dry which I knew would start happening. My old acne marks also seem to be a lot more pronounced and red. I'm still only using a washcloth with water, which could also be making me break out. I'm thinking about starting on a new gentle face wash, but I'm just not sure which one! Are there any all natural brands? I want to stay away from anything that would contribute to drying my face out!
It hasn't even been a week yet, so I'm still hopeful that it will help me. Trying not to pick at my face has been difficult and I'm also not trying to have a complete meltdown because of how bad my face is getting. Neither will help my acne and will definitely make it worse. I've heard that you have to give it 8 to 12 weeks for it to start improving and I'm willing to stick with it until then! I just hope I don't lose my mind!
Hopefully I'll get some pictures up for Tuesday
