Almost 4 weeks- and still going strong

Well acne.org users... This week will be my 4th week on tretinoin/duac. I must say that I have stopped waking up to feel my face immediately. Although I do still run to the mirror right away to see what my skin is looking like! I have had a few small break outs here and there, but nothing like I had before I started this regimen. I used to have those really deep painful, large, pimples on my cheeks that would ALWAYS leave a scar. The red marks are slowly fading- although it seems that my fa

2 WEEKS TOMORROW WITH RETIN A

Ah, the time just goes so quickly... Tomorrow night will mark my 2 weeks on the retin a treatment. At this point, I am LOVING my dermatologist for prescribing me this regimen. I have to admit, at first I thought she was full of it, and her suggestions were not going to help. However, as it turns out....My face is like 99% clear right now! Yesterday for the first time in a very long time, I was without make up for several hours throughout the day, and I wasn't ashamed! I still have a few of

No IB

So last night when I put on the retin a cream- my face got really really red...I looked like I had gotten a severe sunburn on my face! It didn't hurt or anything just looked terrible. I'm so lucky to have a loving husband that doesn't make fun of me when I am looking like this!! I don't believe that I am at that IB stage yet- probably too early. Skin looks pretty good, things are clearing up, and I am getting used to applying chapstick all the time! Although I still have some pretty good

Last night was night #5

Well....here it is MOnday morning...the weather today is kinda drap, and with day light savings time this weekend it sure made it hard to wake up this morning! Last night was my 5th time using the retin a cream. My skin looks much better than it did at this time last week, that's for sure. Although this last weekend, I was SO dry I couldn't believe it! I scared myself when I looked in the mirror...I had to run to the shower and wash and re moisturize! But from everyone on here that I have

DAY 2 OF THE TRETINOIN...

ah.....TGIF everyone! I woke up this morning in a great mood, and part of it is because my face is looking a little better. I find myself anxious to shower at night so that I can put on my cream! The first night I used it, I didn't really notice much of anything happening. BUt after reading some blogs yesterday I find that it might be because I moisturized BEFORE I put the Tretinoin on. So last night I used Tretinoin, and honestly didn't really need moisturizer. My face felt a little bit

MY FIRST TIME...

Good morning to all....I have been reading posts on this site for quite some time, and I have finally decided to join, and share my experiences with all of you... Let me introduce myself....I am 29 years old, married with two daughters. After my last daughter was born (May 2009) my skin totally changed! I have been dealing with this for what feels like forever, and I have finally decided to do something about it. I used to do a lot of modeling before my 2nd daughter was born, and had beauti
