Hey guys! So, I've been having acne for about 9 years, and I am currently 22. I've been on a Clindoxyl Gel regimen for many years and it seemed to work but recently I've been breaking out with these huge cystic pimples that Clindoxyl Gel can't seem to tackle alone. I have red marks everywhere. It's the type of acne that can be perfectly covered with makeup - but with all honestly, no girl wants to worry about powdering themselves up every minute.
I've been prescribed Retisol-A, which is a derivative of Retin-A. The only difference is you can wear this in the morning because it has built-in sunscreen.. and at night I have to use Clindoxyl Gel to kill the uprising bacteria.
I was delaying for over 2 months using this product, but today I finally have the courage to use it for the first time, WISH ME LUCK.
I will document my daily responses to this cream/new regimen.
Here is what I do:
- Wash my face with Cetaphil
- Wait 20-30 minutes then put on Retisol-A
- Wash face with Cetaphil
- Wait 20 minutes, put clindoxyl Gel.
