Long time I've posted anything yes, sorry about that. Anywho, my skin is improving. Still not quite clear yet though. But the first time I use Retin-a, it took around 5 1/2 to 6 months for complete clear skin. So I'm giving my skin another two to three months to see clear skin. Staying positive! - Cheers xx
It's been exactly 30 days of using retin-a. So right now I'm almost in the middle of week 5. I'm seeing VERY slow results, but it's definitely working. With this stubborn skin of mine, this process gets frustrating. I'm very positive that my regimen will work, but it's incredibly slow. I do admit that I am self-conscious again because of my mild acne. It has just completely eaten away my self-esteem. I've made myself a goal a few days ago. To clear my skin, then get my confidence, and my s
Hello! Progress with my skin: Last week I had the initial breakout, so obviously my skin isn't brilliant right now. I am seeing improvement though, a slight and slow improvement. Most of the smaller blemishes have gone, and a few bigger blemishes have left my face also. I have also experienced dryness, but it's not too bad. Putting a little extra moisturiser helps greatly. It's rather frustrating though. My skin is a bit stubborn, so patience is the name of the game. I cannot wait until I see gr
Week 3: Good news! What you ask?! I've gotten... the initial breakout. So actually, not very great news. This week I've had a horrid initial breakout. Obviously, it's complete and utter rubbish. I have around six inflamed zits, and many blemishes that are not too bad. UGH. Also to mention my skin feels rather itchy at times, and slight redness. I'm most probably going to put a little extra moisturiser on my face to relieve the itching and redness. I'm really hoping week 3 and 4 go bye quickly.
Using Retin-a gel 0.025%, Doxycycline, and Tri-Sprintec. Week 1: A few of my zits went away. No irritation, redness, or pealing. Week 2: Nothing new in the beginning of the week, the last day of week two I got a fairly rubbish breakout. (This should be the start of the initial breakout)
Right, so over a year ago, my doctor prescribed me Retin-a and Doxycycline. My acne was moderate, so it took awhile for my skin to clear up. Then finally after six months of waiting, my skin was completely clear! I had beautiful clear skin for around nine months. But then I stopped using both Retin-a and Doxycycline because I had clear skin. Honestly, that was one of the most stupidest mistakes I've ever made in my life. My face went completely downhill once I stopped Retin-a and Doxycycline.
