My retin a is finally here . My skin is slowly improving no more acne just this freaking Pih uh I hate dark spots so much . I sometimes think its worse than the acne itself . I upped ny dosage to 75 mg and really my skin is so smooth. It really feels great I just want it to look great too. I'm hoping in 3 -4 months the retin a helps. I plan to use it at night , I also have tazorac that I want to use in the morning but I want to be gentle with my skin so for now ill only go with retin a .
O is seriously freaking me out , in a good way of course! I had pizza with lots of cheeeese milk and cranberry juice and this morning my skin is as soft as EVER. I was washing my face and felt like I was touching a baby's butt!! LOL! I cannot remember last time my skin has felt so soft. I mean after 9 year dealing with acne its pretty easy to get used to the feel of those bumps and pimples . Still working on my post acne marks ,I really can't wait for those to fade. Meanwhile I bought some jojoba and let me tell you this oil is GREAT!!! I don't mix it with anything just slap it on my face and wash it off with a hot towel. It's not "oily" at all and its a great moisturizer.
I suffered from acne since I was 11 years old and I'm now 21 . My acne has been pretty mild until I left my country for the U.S to study. I started breaking out on my forehead with huge cysts and pustules. It calmed down when I change ny diet but the acne never entirely subsided . I had now blackheads and whiteheads that would never leave . I tried almost everything oxy clinical clean and clear neutrogena vitamin c serum glycolic acid dead sea salt baking soda proactiv panoxyl ambi spearmint tea msm ( which made me break out really bad ) zinc multivitamin antibiotic bactrim ( found out I'm allergic to sulfate drugs ) steroids . I decided to go to the derm because o was frustrated and he prescribed me with spironolactone. I tried it for a week and stop since I knew I would drink a lot while on vacation so now I'm back and can' t wait to start. I should note that I started on 25 mg and upped to 50 after 2 days but it gave me heart palpitations so I'm going slow now. I do not have Pcos but I have hisurtism( great amount on hair on legs chest stomach and some on upper lip and chin. ) I have great muscula mass I'm muscular even without working out . I have oily skin and obviously acne . I'm hoping spironolactone will help me achieve clear skin.I will give it a good 6 months and see what happens. I wish to me and everyone on this forum clear skin. No need to detail how much acne sucks and ruin your life. I will post picture once I figure out how to.
