In Topic: Tretinoin Sucks ..yes Or No

21 May 2013 - 07:05 AM

It sucked for me for about 8 months and then suddenly it was the BEST. THING. EVER.

 

So frustrating to wait though! I am clear of stubborn non-inflamed acne now and my skin is even and looks healthy.

I'm right there with you! (I also sit in the sink to pick) 


In Topic: Do You Commit Long Term To A Regimen Or Do You Switch Products A Lot?

20 May 2013 - 11:25 AM

I really believe that for me, switching products was a main factor in my break outs (under the skin, flesh colored but VERY stubborn and all over) 

 

I promised myself that with starting tretenoin cream I would stick to one regimen for a year and honestly I am clear and my skin tone is improving every day. As soon as I start to think about switching it up I try to remind myself of other times where I'd break out 2-3 weeks after starting something new and all the other problems (dryness, redness etc.)

 

Just my 2 cents. :)
