A month is a long time for change...and my skin has gotten worse. It seems to just get gradually worse and worse as time goes on. My scars are very prominent, and my skin just keeps breaking out. I think I'm going back to my doctor to get a new medication....I haven't been using my Tretinoin properly though, and I just started using it more. Could that be why my skin is worse? I've also been super stressed! My classes are crazy, I work and my family hasn't had it too well recently. I've bee
hey guys, long time no chat! i've been super busy with work, summer reading and just trying to enjoy my summer. Igo back to school next monday, and i am SO not ready. Dear lord, i am royally screwed. Anyways, my acne has been pretty good. I had this one zit in the corner of my mouth on the left side that drove me CRAZY, and its kind of flared up again. It's going down, i just hate those zits! I have a few right now, but they're all just little red bumps. The one under my nose is going to be a pa
As I announced in my last entry, I've been out of school for two weeks, and I've noticed a HUGE change in my skin. It's so much clearer, and the little zits I get are minor (I'm sure I'll get a big one after jinxing myself like this!). I just got a job, and it's causing some stress, so hopefully I can overcome it. I start tomorrow, and the shift I'll be working is a VERY busy one, so that should be an interesting experience. What are your tips for overcoming of handling stress? I have reall
I'm out of school- woohoo! I finished up the year with good grades, and I'm in a pretty good spot. However, this blog isn't about my life, its about my skin, which has been going bonkers lately! I've been breaking out more and more, but it isn't anything too bad. I just hate to see my skin fluctuate so drastically like this, especially when its summer! I'm definetly going to stay on the Tretinoin, but I'm not so sure about the Clindamycin... It just doesn't seem to cut it for me. Do you hav
I know this is a little early- but I have finals next week and I won't be able to post a longer post! Lots of changes recently- I've gone to a new facial system! Its by the Body Shop, and its the Tea Tree line. I use the facial wash, toner and facial lotion. I'm still using my acne medications that were prescribed to me: Clinamycin Lotion 1% Tretinoin .05% I'm also using my Neutrogena Oil Free Moisture (thats what it says on the bottle?) SPF 15. I really like the Body shop line,
If you haven't read my previous post, I'd invite you to do so. It's short, but it has the information on the percentage of the medications that I am on. I'll list them here anyways: Clindamycin Phosphate Lotion 1% Trentinoin .05% ( I apologize for any misspellings!) Let's see....where to start! I've noticed that I break out every other week. It's really strange- I'll be clear for a week and then BAM! The next week I have 3-4 zits. They go away quickly which is nice, and th
Just a quick introduction- I created this blog to communicate with other people who are on the exact same medication as I am. Clindamycin Phosphate lotion 1% Tretinoin .05% Just a place to share thoughts, success or failure stories, tips and anything else. Please leave a comment with anything you find useful!
