Tretinoin (Retin-A) Initial Breakout...should I Wait?

16 December 2013 - 01:26 PM

So today I was prescribed 0.05% Tretionin by my derm, but reading reviews everyone (almost everyone) says they got an initial breakout

I don't want bad skin for new years and i'm going to be at the beach so it will definitely be 100% visible :/

Should I wait to start? How long did your initial breakout last??

Anemia Treatment And Acne?

25 November 2013 - 02:22 AM

So, I'm anemic (probably because of my baaad diet)

I'm starting to take a multivitamin which has iron, B12 and many other vitamins but I made sure it had no iodine...do you think it will make my acne worse? I heard iodine is the main culprit for breakouts caused by multivitamins

Oil Cleansing Method- Purging Or Breaking Out? (Photos) Please Help!

14 November 2013 - 03:24 AM

Hi, I've been doing the oil cleanse method for 3 weeks now and I've noticed the acne on my forehead is getting worse and worse. I don't know if my skin is purging or if it is breaking out so I'm not sure whether to try something else or stick with it? But this is definitely the worst my acne has been. The acne on my cheeks does seem to be a little better though but my forehead is like 5X worse. I'm thinking of trying African Black Soap. Any advice? Should I carry on? Is this purging or are my pores clogged?
