I am finishing up the first week of the initial breakout period. I have been doing my treatment for 23 days now.
I have to admit this week has been hard. I had a date this weekend so I use my olay peel 2 days in a row... BIG mistake. I ended up making my face raw! I had to slather my face in moisturizer and I couldn't use the tretinion for 2 days. In the last few days my face has continued to break out horribly. Its awful my cheeks and even up near the corner of my left eye is broken out. I continue to make it worse because I pick and pop.I know it doesn't help.Even as I am doing it I know its bad but I can't stop. So now in addition to my terrible zits my face is full of these peely scab things. I decided to not wear make up to work because I don't want to mess up my treatment. I can't even tell you how embarrassing it is. I took a picture just to show everyone just how bad it is right now. Because of my scabs I changed up my treatment just a little.
I wash my face as soon as I get home from work. I wait a few minutes and then apply my tretinion. I have been putting some neosporin on my scabs/ popped zit and putting on each one before I go to bed. I am hoping that this helps me get rid of these faster.
