One Week with Retin -A



So... tomorrow is my one week anniversary with Retin -A. I know that I will not be able to post until Firday or Saturday of this week. My schedule is out of this world.

Since I began this journey, no new pimples have popped up. The pimples I did have are either gone, or disappearing. The only one that is really working my nerves is on the side of my face. I believe it is a pretty large blackhead. At least, that is what it looks like. That is the onlyactive pimple I have.

The burning has lessened its severity. The retin-A really does not bother me, now that I am exfoliating and applying cetaphil.

I read several posts on different sites about using moisturizer before or after the retin-a. From the posts it seems best to moisturize AFTER applying Retin-A (wait time: 15-20 minutes). I am going to ask my dermatologist this week for the final opinion. Some people do apply Retin-A in conjunction with the moisturizer. I believe this lessens the efficacy of the treatment by diluting the tretinoin.

BTW...if you visit my blog, leave a comment and your experience. I value feedback :D

Good luck to everyone kickin' ACNE tail....
