Eighth & Ninth Week

For the past two weeks my skin pretty much stayed the same (except some small breakouts here and there because of hormonal imbalances), there isn't a lot of improvements and there isn't any worsening. One thing that I did notice is that because I have been lazy in putting on sunscreen, that my skin would get pretty red (around my cheeks) after a couple minutes under the sun. I still have my old scars, and my open pores are still open (ughhh I hate them). But besides that , my skin is healing fro

Seventh Week

This week i broke out a bit because its the week before the time of the month (I usually breakout the most during this time). I counted and this time I only had about 3-4 active pimples, a lot better compared to before. There were two that were active but died out really quickly, and one that is quite persistent for the past 3 days. As for the usual stuff, there is almost little to no flaking, but there are still scars that are still there that have been there for like a month or so. I am hoping

Sixth Week

My skin is very smooth now, well it feels very smooth, but whether it looks smooth, I don't know. I hardly get any breakouts, except for blackheads, and that is pretty much it for this week. The only thing now that still lingers are the scars and discolorations, but I know that it takes a while for them to lessen or disappear, so I'll be patient. There is no flaking now. My open pores are still open. My face looks the same from before, but with no active pimples and scabs.

Fifth Week

Things have been looking a lot better, I have been flaking less, and there is a lot less active acne (I only see one so far and a couple of blackheads). Though there is still hyper pigmentation that has not yet gone away. I realized from the start that I had some open pores, and comparing now and then, there seems to be no difference, my open pores are still very visible. I still have blackheads on my nose, but that is because I have applied Tretinoin on there, I don't know if I am suppose to or

Fourth Week

Happy Valentine's Day guys!! With this week being the fourth week, a month since I started using Tretinoin 0.025% as a night cream and Benzoyl Peroxide 5% for day cream. The flaking really did reduce compared to two weeks ago, though there is still some flakes when I wipe my face on a dark shirt when I exercise. My menstrual breakout was not as bad as I predicted, but there were still some white heads. The upper part of my face is pretty clear (my forehead, temples, and the part under my eye and

Third Week

This week is the third week, and I actually am seeing some improvement in my skin. The places that don't usually breakout (for me its my forehead) has gotten really clear. My left and right cheek is still breakout, but not as much. On Tuesday I picked on two pimples, but now they are almost healed, only that they left dark spots. Pretty much the healing process of a popped pimple is rather fast compared to what I had to go through. I am still flaking, but it is lessening also. This week should b

Second Week

So this week is my second week, and I have most of all the side effects of using Tretinoin in the initial process. Comparing the second week with my first week, my skin peeled less, but it still peels, I still do have initial breakouts here and there, but I always end up picking at them (I am assuming it is because I had finals this week and also some relationship tensions), but yes I know it is very bad. I now found out what made my skin burn, it was not the day cream of Benzoyl peroxide, but m

First week

This Wednesday marks the first week that I have used Tretinoin, and so far things have not been looking as well yet. The first couple of days that I started to use Tretinoin and Benzoyl Peroxide seemed great. But then 4 days after, when I put on the Benzoyl Peroxide my skin burned. It really hurt so I stopped for the rest of the week. During my first week of Tretinoin my skin flaked so much. My friends saw my skin and they just said that it looked disgusting and stuff like that. I also had some

This is Me

Hi guys so an introduction of me would be like I am 17, and I have been suffering through this for about 5 years, and this year, as my new year's resolution, I will try my very best to get rid of my acne. I am so tired of being so self- conscious about myself, which made me develop a habit of shying away from making eye contact with people that I talk to. I remember when I was little and watching the Proactive commercials and the people in the commercials saying that acne can effect a person's c
