Purging Wave 3

retinoid acid

Purging Wave 3

I was keep switching one clinic to another, from the most famous one on my country (also the biggest in ASEAN) until the cheapest and unknown (?) clinic. I was switching from one doctor to another, and give my entire trust and use their cream and whatever the treatment they asked, for years. My skin react good but at the end of the year it is just getting worse. I was considering that retinoid acid would give me breakout/purging, but I just went with it as I lost my hope. My parents yelling at me at this skin condition, and I was keep debating on them like every minutes. People around me also like "oh my gosh, please stop it immediately, just don't give it a try, what a shit purging phase, it is not even exist" something like that. I feel so insecure and stop contacting everyone and I really didn't want to meet my friend at all. People also tried to change my mind and offer me products that they believe "a magic acne heal" something like tangerine and salt, or sirih leaf, tomato mask, or just a product that I can easily find it at market. But, honestly I've mostly tried them out and failed, so I just replied them like "yes yes I will" but I never stop using the retinoid acid.
