Retina A Micro Journey!

So, i am on my third day of using Retin A Micro 0.04%. The first day i had no issues, I applied it at night and went to bed. The second day was fine and i didn't apply that night (I'm only applying every 2nd night for about 2 weeks). The third day was unfortunate. After shaving and showering, I noticed some flakiness and peeling on some areas of my face. After getting out of the shower, my face burned a lot and was very red! I decided to put a honey mask on and the burning went down, now i'm off to bed, applied my retina a micro and my face is still really red in certain areas (cheekbone area) but luckily the burning feeling went down. I'm hoping it doesn't stay too red for too long. Excited for it to start working though, gotta push through the side effects! Wish me luck!

Week 2

Well, I am now officially on my second week of using Accutane. My skin looked as if it was getting A LOT better until recently. I just brokeout, this is not the usual breakout though, for some reason I got medium sized pimples couple and cheeks and 1-2 on forehead. The breakout is not horrible, but id much rather it not be there. Ive been told that while on Accutane, the skin will get worse before it can get better, and I'm hoping this week my breakouts will stop and accutane can begin to take it's full course! I'll keep you(s) updated for week 3! Thank You!
