So up until a few weeks ago I was religiously using the regimen for about 3 years. At first it did wonders for my skin but a nasty break out after a course of steroids finally pushed me to try something else. Before this horrible breakout I was about 90% clear. The steroids made my face explode, and it showed no signs of letting up. Since then I've been dealing with lots of clogged pores and closed comedones. My entire face was covered in them and the AHA and BP were doing me no good anymore. So somewhere in this hellish nightmare I found out that Differin was available OTC. I bought some and it took me about a month to finally get the courage to use it. The first 4 weeks I was using BP alongside it but decided to quit cold turkey. My skin is definitely improving in regards to the comedones but I have a lot more clogged pores, blackheads, and whiteheads. I know the whiteheads are pretty normal for this stage but are the clogged pores and blackheads normal as well? I'm sure quiting BP cold turkey isn't helping either but my skin feels much healthier without it. Also sorry for the long post. I'm horrible about being brief.
