  1. week 15 or something

    Thanks Sascha, i see what your saying but I did read some women experience great results with using differin like every second night as well and sometimes even just every third evening.  I was definitely seeing results but I think the mixture of that pill, stress and the chlorine and possibly me missing differin for about 4 days sort of exacerbated my skin Again.   Sort of at a loss of what to do now tbh.
  2. week 15 or something

    So I beieve tomorrow will be week the start of week 16 of using Differin. I just want to say that I HATE my skin right now. I am very stressed with uni work currently though so I don't think that helps.  Last month I took the morning after pill, which I'm not exactly proud of. I seriously noticed my skin deteriorate a lot the following weeks after that. Thing is... things started clearing up well like last week I felt okay with my skin it wasn't 'too bad'.  But this week it's just shit. I started swimming again more often than normal and I wonder if that's playing a part. So I'm going to stop the swimming atm which kinda sucks :/   Still using differin roughly every second evening but I did go about 3 or 4 evenings of not taking it. I keep thinking about trying retin A? Would that seriously affect me in a negative way do you think? Like will it make me purge again etc? And make things worse? I'm waiting till week 20 and then going back to the docs. Still want to try accutane but we'll see.    
  3. Closed Comedones & Differin :(

    I swear it's 100 %  normal. I'm on week 14 of differin and went through exactly what your going through at the start. 
  4. Seriously.

    So I don't know where to start with this.  had a crap few weeks tbh and I wasn't regularly using my differin. I'm meant to be on week 12 or something but my skin is a mess right now.  I had a sort of drunken escapade on Friday evening there which resulted in me taking the 'morning after pill' or 'plan B' contraceptive.  I've never had any synthetic hormones in my body for like 5 years. I wonder if this has caused it I'm not sure? But I'm do frigging upset with it guys :'(
  5. Suffered with these sort of small spots on my chest for years. Most noticeable after exercise (sweating of any sort). I also find that if I wear high necked tops or cardigans I break out with these. They sort of get worse and then go away after a week/ become less noticeable, then come back! Any clue on what these are and how to get rid?
  6. week 10 of Differin

    Alot improvement this week. Using Differin every second night still and also vitamin C serum in the morning.
  7. weeks 8 and 9

    Just some pictures I've took over the past few of weeks.   
  8. Vitamin C cream purging?

    Yes completely normal. Check the ingredients on the back of the product and see if there's any "retinol" or "retinyl acetate" in there. In my experience with vitamin C products they tend to involve other exfoliant type chemicals which are known to cause slight purging of the skin. 
  9. Quick Update Pics

    Just some pic updates for week 7/8
  10. Week 7 Of Differin

    So I don't know what to think of my skin tbh. Been using differin for 7 weeks now but i wouldn't say there's a huge improvement . Here are some pics.
  11. Middle Of Week 6

    Hey guys. Just wanted to write again. I'm having a weird time with my skin. It's like, some days I like it and see improvement and others are just so so so shit. Like truly. It does not help that I still pick and squeeze except to a lesser extent at least. I'm currently still using Differin every second evening, I prefer doing this just now. Skin is still dry in some areas but much less than a few weeks ago which is great.
  12. Start Of Week 6

    Genuinely hating life. Like hating life. My period is due tomorrow so maybe that's why I'm having a freak out but honestly my skin is horrendous right now..I don't get it, it was . doing so well and I seen improvement but now it's like BAMM acne and bumps everywhere. :'(
  13. Please Help Me- Really Bad Forhead Acne

    I'm sorry to hear your going through this. Personally I'd go to the doctors and get tested for celiac disease and candida if you feel that's the case. Also a dermatologist would be a good option too.
  14. Forehead - Week 5.

    So the last pics I uploaded didn't really show the texture of my skin well. My forehead still bothers me so much. It always breaks out in more bumps . before my period. Sorry I don't know why they are upside down!!!
  15. Week 5 Of Differin

    Hey! Just a quick update with my skin. I'm still trying to stop picking so much and I actually managed one full day without it just because I was so busy with work. Also, I did not wash my face for a couple days at all which sort of had a positive effect on my skin Anyway I'm still using differin ever second night. The dryness of my skin has actually subsided a little bit - I don't get as much flakes. I've also been using a vitamin C serum in the morning be free moisturising.. I'm hoping this helps with red marks too. I'll show you a couple pics I took today. I've also been taking Vitamin E capsules..300mg.
  16. Week 4 Differin (2)

    I'm seriously not happy. It's acrually me I'm so unhappy with. I seem to be in this constant cycle of look in a magnifying mirror and squeeze the HELL outta my pores until SOMETHING comes out. Then what this does is creates more anxiety and deep frustration and worst of all pink blotches all over my face AND raised bumps!!! I never fucking learn. So I last used Differin last Friday and then once again last night (Tuesday evening) I took this short 3 day break because my skin was soooo dry and scaly like an alagator or a snake of you know what I mean. I'm going to use it again tomorrow evening which will be the start of week 5 for me. I wanted to ask though - am I cutting myself short by only applying Differin every second evening...I mean, is my "week 5" really just "week 3" if you know what I mean? Also does anyone have reviews in Aveeno products? I bought a moisturiser to use..It has she butter in it.
  17. No Picking Challenge For Real This Time!

    Day one for me starts tomorrow. I always squeeze at my clogged pores and blackhead to try and get junk out but all it does is leave me with an unsightly, bumpy red mark for days! It also doesn't help that I'm using Differin currently so that will be thinning my skin but I just can't stop :'(
