Wow..so I've missed a few weeks of blogging. Four weeks to be exact, and that's quite a bit. I hate that I've missed that much because I can't really remember the changes that took place during that time. I can, however, tell you how my skin is doing on week 8; exactly two months of Retin-a!
So, this week I am home for Spring Break. I came in late on a Friday night, so I didn't really see my family when I got in. The next morning, the first thing my mom commented on was my skin. She tol
Okay, It has definitely been a weird week..
It started off not so good with a major breakout (at least I would call it that). I never actually get regular pimples; I usually only have whiteheads and blackheads.

It feels lik
Well, I said that I would update every week on my Retin-a Experience. I'm really going to try, but things are about to get really crazy with my classes. Anyway, Week two....last week I said I was having absolutely no flaking or dryness. That has changed! By about Tuesday this week, I started noticing some peeling and flaking. Most of it's on my forehead and nose. It's not that noticeable yet.
Last night I went to the Clinique counter to buy makeup (I love their makeup!). I could tell t
Hello Everyone! I'm new to this, but very excited to become part of the acne.org community. I want to share my acne experiences; I feel like it could be a good way to cope, so I believe I'll do a weekly update. If I help someone else in the process, then that's wonderful!
So, last week was my first visit ever to the dermatologist (I'm 23 by the way). It was definitely an interesting experience. He's the only derm in the area, and I must say a bit of a jerk. He seriously spent less than
