I haven't been on in the longest time, so I thought it would be best to write before I forget again! So I have been on Differin 0.1 for the past 6 weeks. Tomorrow will be the start of the 7th week. I have had about 3 major breakouts since I've started using it. The first breakout was around the first or second week, the next was around the 4th week, and my last breakout was at the beginning of the 6th week. For the second two breakouts I am pretty sure I know why they happened and I'm not sure if it was because of the differin itself. The second breakout was around exam time and the last breakout I went to the gym without taking my makeup off and then I put more makeup on after sweating! Stupid.....I know, but the gym absolutely sucks when you have acne!
As of right now, my skin is doing okay! My skin is pretty smooth on the sides and my forehead is a little rough with tiny pimples. I haven't had many large pimples since my last breakout, but I'm worried I'm jinxing it just by saying that! My dark marks have become a little lighter, but I heard it takes months for them to fade, which sucks because they look like pimples even though they are smooth to the touch. I am getting little pimples around my hairline right down to my ears, but I think my shampoo might be the culprit. I started using a new one right around the same time that I had my most recent breakout.
I'm going to try to post more often, but school might get in the way! I'm going to post some pictures of what my skin looks like now (end of 6th week). My face might look a little red because I had just taken my foundation off
