4 Months

Almost 4 months of using Differin, cleansing with Cetaphil 2x a day, never using make up, and stopping my obsession of my skin.. here's what happened! My skin is renewed. I know I still have few blemishes but this is far better from where i started. I feel so thankful with the products i use. Especially, Galderma creator of differin and cetaphil products, for all their life changing innovations. This wasn't an easy journey, i had ups and downs but i powered through despite the recurring seemingl

2 months on differin

2 months on my regimen! My skin felt smoother and improved 50 %! My mom even commented on my progress. Though to be honest i still feel insecure, mainly due to hyperpigmentation. Most prominent after face washing, but 1 hour later my face looks dewy and almost close to being clear (i dunno if optical illusion or something). And i still do get 2 or 4 small pimples a week, which resolves within 2 to 3 days with bp (spot treatment) and differin (whole face) ONLY at night. Well thats expected from w

Week 4

End of week 4 update. I've been on differin for 1 month! I still do get break outs, characterized as red papulopustules but they resolve within a week. Some of them grow on previous lesions while others on closed comedones. Some closed comedones do not get inflamed, but just extrude a hard white sebum, like the comedone is pushed upward from underneath the skin. I don't experience dryness or redness but my skin is super oily! I don't get much peeling except on area around my lower lip.  Over

Week 3

End of Week 3. My forehead and cheeks feel smoother.  Hyperpigmentation and some bumps can still be seen and felt. In my honest opinion, my face is better than when i started. Even though my pictures seem otherwise. Honestly, The actual is better than the picture, my camera tends to highlight the pigmentation even further. No filter is used in this picture.  Im getting tired of minding this pimple though haha! Sometimes, i stare at myself infront of the mirror for long periods of time, noting

Week 2

2 weeks after using differin, i had major breakouts in my forehead and cheeks. Some of the closed comedones are gone. Now, i have 6 papulopustules on my forehead. The good thing about this is they are usually gone within 3 to 4 days with no scarring, just hyperpigmentation which eventually goes away. I experience a little stinging sensation but only when i touch my face such us washing. No redness or dryness so far. Overall, my experience with my current regimen is tolerable. The breakouts are e

Clear skin journey 2016

26 year old female currently managing adult onset moderate acne of 1 year. I had clear skin prior to march of 2015. From there, my acne became persistent first on my chin, then to my cheeks and lastly my forehead. Currently, i have mostly closed comedones and some pigmented papules mostly on my forehead and few on my cheeks. My current situation stems from frequent pricking, face washing (which leads to rebound oil production), and use of cosmetics. I vow to stop all these bad habits once and
