As per...

A usual I've become quite lazy with my regimen. Now I've got two small pustules and various other small blemishes around my mouth and chin. :sigh: I'm just so darned lazy. It's been two days since I've washed my face. Or longer. I don't recall when the last time was. I guess I'm just doomed to have a bad face. :sigh:

small breakout

Well I had a small breakout last night. Not bad. Just a few small pimples. They were mostly ready to be popped, so I did, the proper way. I'm wondering when my retin-a is going to cause a breakout. I haven't had one yet, at least not the kind I hear about, like a full-on breakout. I'll keep doing what I'm doing and see if my skin gets clearer. I'll give it until my cleanser is used up. Then I want to switch to Dan's products. I hear so many good things about them. I tried to get my parents to w

Dan's products?

I want to try Dan's products but my parents won't buy them for me. They said I already have products that to use... That's true. I do have an acne wash and moisturizer and prescription topicals. I'm sad. I really wanted to buy Dan's products. But I think when my acne wash runs out I'll bug them again and they might buy them for me. So I have hope. I really want to only use Dan's products instead of what I'm using (including the prescription stuff). Simple is better. I'm worried that I'm usi

Wow clearer skin!

Ok it looks like the clindamyacin gel is working wonders on my face! I doubt it's the retin-a micro doing it yet. So I just hope I keep getting clearer skin. I'm using Neutrogena Oil Free Acne Wash (salycilic acid), Honey Bee Skin Healing Cream, clindamyacin gel and Retin-A Micro (generic). It feels good to have clearer skin. I still want to go on Dan's regimen and products. I'm working at getting my dad to accept the idea (he has the $$ ) hehe

Generic Retin-A

So my derm prescribed the generic of Retin-A Micro. I was able to afford that (even though insurance still wont cover it). It was $44. So I'm starting to use it every other day. I'll do that for probably 2 weeks and then do it every day. Tonight I applied it and it was fine for a while without burning (luckily, but I switched the moisturizer). It's now stinging/itching around my nose and below my lower lip and off to the side. It was still very dry so I applied more moisturizer and the stinging

No more Retin-A Micro

Well, after a few days of fighting with my insurance company's phone line (they wouldn't recognise my member ID on their system) I gave up and called my dermatologist. I let him know that the Retin-A Micro isn't covered by my insurance company due to my age (26). CVS said that the insurance denial was because I'm not a teenager... UGH. So anyway I called my derm and left a message. So I hope to hear back later today or tomorrow. I hope they prescribe something else that will work.

New Regimen

I just started taking care of my skin. I've had acne since I was a young teenager. I'm finally fed up with it and am doing something about it. I had tried all the over the counter stuff over the years so I felt it was necessary to go to the dermatologist, since I already had one for my psoriasis. He prescribed clindamycin and retin-a micro. Since I hadn't been taking care of my face or chest other than using water to cleanse my skin I bought a Neutragena Oil Free acne wash. I also bought an
