I was never consistent with the treatment for more than 3 months - always had breaks of 6-7 months in between. However, this time around with 0.04%, I am going to be patient, have faith, and do things right. I decided to start this log to have as a resource for others and myself.
I believe I'm going through the purging process, as a lot of whiteheads are popping up. It's all over my cheeks, a little bit on my forehead, and some near my chin. This is usually where people pull the plug, but I'm going to stick it out and hope for the best. And pray.
I'm staying away from facial scrubs, using mild cleansers, and using Paula's Choice BHA liquid 2% (sometimes) during the day, underneath my makeup. I shower at night for RAM to be optimally effective (since pores are opened up more after shower), and I wait 10-15 minutes for my face to dry before putting it on. I don't use a moisturizer post-application.
