what is the crack with differin seriously.
im approaching week 6 and i'm still breaking out lol.... i'm laughing because i am actually really depressed..
i thought by now i wouldnt break out or at least it would have calmed down. Basically i seem to be breaking out on my right temple..
generally my forehead looks messy, i have had countless black heads and white heads crop up or sit under the skin for weeks now. do the black heads ever come out on their own accord?
did anyone else experience temple area breaking out from clear before treatment?
who is using differin with an anti-biotic? or duac?
i want to know if i am doing anything wrong here...
its disheartening to think it could have got worse than before i started, granted i'm not purging like when i first started but the marks and scars are lingering from this process.
Oh no :/ Please don't be depressed: I was/am still breaking out, although much much less. I don't think my skin's been 100% clear for more than 4-5 days tops because my bumps are still purging. The majority of my breakouts were on my cheeks and outer area of face because that's my problem area (never used to be), but now it's almost exclusively on my jawline (which is also weird because I never had any problems there. Granted, that's still where the bumps are). I think I've had a breakout in every part of my face since starting it, even in places where I never had any problems before starting Differin, except for around the eye area which has stayed clear.
I find that the Differin didn't help with any blackheads, so I 'treat' those with something different. I also still have a little bit of hyperpigmentation from past breakouts but I've seriously not been touching my face at all so it's gotten so much better, more on the left side of my face than the right. Does that serum not work then?
I'm pretty sure you're not doing anything wrong. Halfway through the 3 months I also did think that, that I could've saved all the breakouts and embarrassment if I'd never started the treatment, especially as January - March was 'party season' (the majority of my friends and I turned 18) and I had to go to parties with a breakout slap bang in the middle of my face. But I was like, I started it for a reason so I wanted to stick with it for the full 3 months to see if it was worth it and I'm really, really glad I did.
