Week 21 On Tretinoin- Completely Clear For 1 Week!

Holy cow guys! I've not had ANY new spots in a week and I am completely clear! This hasn't happened to me since I can't remember when...years! Now, before you hop on over to my gallery to check out the pics, let me tell you that by CLEAR, I mean no active spots. I still have red marks. But THIS IS A HUGE TURNING POINT FOR ME, I AM PSYCHED! I must say, I am scared every morning when I look in the mirror, because I feel like this is too good to be true. But I really, really, really hope this is a

Week 20 On Tretinoin- Clearing Up, Scar Consult

My face has continued to clear up since that last bad breakout a couple of weeks ago. I have one new spot under my right temple, but it is not sore (my acne is usually tender and sore). Because it isn't sore, I think it will go away faster (fingers crossed). But other than that, and old marks from my last breakout that are still shrinking, my face is clear...EVEN MY JAWLINE! Because of this week being such a good one, I tried to figure out if I've done anything differently. And I've been do

Week 19 On Tretinoin - Diet, Morphing Acne, And How I'm Pathetic

Sooo if you read my last entry, and then checked my gallery, you may have noticed I did NOT post progress pictures for that week. I knew it would just make me frustrated seeing the new breakout. I know, pathetic right? Trying to accurately document my progress so I can try to really peg this thing down, and I can't even bring myself to look at pictures...Good news is, I do have progress pics for this week, because the spots from that breakout is finally dying down! I ate HORRIBLY this past week

Tomorrow Is Week 18 On Tretinoin

So I don't know what I've done differently, but I have new spots in places that I never break out! Typically, I'll have an active or two on my jawline...and mayyybe one on the side of my face or cheek. But in the past couple days I've had one creep up above my lip, another about an inch the the left of my nose. and another in the middle of my chin. I also got two new ones on my jawline (not surprising, as this is where I normally break out). They are almost on top of each other. The only thing I

Week 15 1/2, On Tretinoin

Sooo it's been a while since I've blogged. Honestly it's because I haven't seen a lot of major changes. Still not perfectly clear, still dealing with hyperpigmentation. But I have been pretty content because it is much better than it was before I started with tretinoin. But recently I had a nasty little breakout on my jawline and one side of my face. The deep, cystic ones that stay sore and hard forever. I broke down, and realllly tried to resist the urge, but I couldn't, and I started taking th

Week 9 On Tretinoin (W/ Pics)

Not a lot of new info to report. Still seeing gradual improvements. Anything left over from my last minor breakout has cleared up, and I only have 1 active. I had a clogged pore on my cheek and tried to squeeze it out....I definitely made it angry by doing this, it's really red and sore now. But overall my skin still feels very smooth. Still dealing with oily skin, hyperpigmentation, boxcar scars, and some flaking (from the tretinoin), but that is all expected. I knew I wouldn't be cured of thes

Week 7 With Tretinoin (W/ Pics)

I will keep this short and sweet this time... So I had a minor setback... over the holidays I slept in my makeup a few consecutive nights because I stayed with some friends...and I am too embarrassed to let friends see me without makeup! So I did break out some... nothing horrible, but enough that I got mad at myself. Still have one angry papule on my forehead that is sore. The rest are gone already or in the process of drying out. I made all the changes to my regimen that I mentione

Tretinoin Week 5- Status And Regimen Changes

Acne still under control for now, the clearest I've been in a long time (no new pics, but you can see my previous blog entry for pics if interested). Have had only two new zits this week (before, I'd expect at least 5 new ones every morning!). And when I do get new pimples, they do not come to a head. They are barely visible and don't get nearly as inflamed as before. This is incredibly exciting, I'm 25 and have been dealing with acne since I was 10! I had read such good things about a tretinoin
