I also use Retin a 0.025%. Starting the third month. Weekend I was on vacation and use sunscreen 50 +, however, my skin was red and it hurt! I wonder to continue I use Retin-A? Maybe every other day?
If I were you, I would stop using it until my skin felt normal again. You don't want to cause any damage!
And try to spend zero time out on the sun, really. You can go and sunbathe your hands to get your vitamin D, but just keep your face in the shadow.
Ok so it's week 10. My pimples from last week are still healing. But I actually DIDN'T GET ANY NEW ONES. *knock on wood*
My skin feels better that the last week.
That's pretty much it for this week. I ate a ton of sugar because of the holidays but didn't affect my skin(it never did). Even a bit of mayo didn't break me out!
I do use a new moisturizer for deep repair but actually it's a very special face cream. My aunt bought it for me as my birthday gift. She uses it and my cousin also uses it and she told me it improved their skin a lot! She doesn't get any more breakouts. And my cousin's skin texture improved very much. So i checked out their site and it's made by a woman who got three gold medals for innovation in Geneva, Seoul and Kuwait. http://www.anaya.si/en/index.html
I don't know if you can buy it anywhere where you live, i doubt it. Because It's a Slovenian product and she mainly sells it there and on East.
But i love it because it makes my skin so hydrated and supple and regenerated. The way it works is quite special. So far so good, it's a little expensive though..
Anyway, here are my pictures, i know most if you only want to look at pictures, but pictures can be quite deceiving. Like these ones; most of it is red marks! There are no real active pimples!
As always; decide for yourself if my skin got any better
