#3422031 Retin-A

i have bought this product long time back and it's RIDICULOUSLY ABRASIVE. it will end up irritating your acne and make it worse!

the walnut shells have sharp jagged edges that will create microtears in your skin which will be damaging in the long run.

#3422029 How Long Does It Take To "pull" The Oil Out Of Pores?

Posted by niklaus on 22 March 2014 - 10:54 PM

you should wash your face ONLY 2 times a day - morning & night. when you wash often, you strip the oils of your face and it causes your face to produce excessive oil, hence acne. 

 

trust me, when i first got acne, even i washed my face multiple times in a day until i found out someplace in google that its counterproductive.

if you asked me that question a year or two years ago, my answer would've been that i'm constantly worried about my inflammation and acne scars. now that i have been using retin a and been seeing a MASSIVE improvement, i have realized that i have gained some self-confidence. for instance, i am no longer afraid to be in front of the camera anymore, something that was unthinkable 1-2 years back. standing under the sun or fluorescent lights do not bother me as much anymore. i am comfortable to be surrounded by classmates on both sides of my face because i used to shift my face to the left or right, whichever side looked better even to have a simple conversation. all these little things that i shouldn't have been concerned about in the first place, arent present anymore. i cant tell you how great that feeling is! :')
having acne has really opened up my eyes to not judge a person by their appearance. in a way, im glad that i suffer and still suffer from it.
