Retin A UPDATE!!!!!



I hit the two week mark!

To review:

I am using Retin A in conjunction with the Obagi skincare system.

My skin is so smooth. I cannot believe it. I have had always had acne, at least for as long as I can remember. I always cried over pictures that showed me with clear, pretty skin. My face is in no way flawles after 2 weeks but the improvements are really showing. My friend told me that my cheeks, chin, and forehead were so clear. The Obagi system I beleive is really helping even out my complexion. Thank goodness. I think I could live with a few pimples if the awful marks left over were not there. The improvement is so drastic after so few time.

If you are currently taking retin a ....stick with it....I am still flacking but not nearly as much as before. I no longer look at Santa Claus. YAY!!!

I am still endorsing the LYPSYL Swedish lip moisturizer...my lips are amazing. They look and feel great. A guy actualy gave me a compliment on my lips last night. For the first time in two weeks they are not super dry. This lypsyl is magical. I am so happy.

There are some drawbacks of course. I have had two pimples pop up, but they disappear the next day and are, strangely, not leaving any marks behind. I am so surprised. i do not know if this is due to the dreaded IB or my cycle....which should be starting soon.

Whatever it is I can live with it, because I am happy with my skin. I am planning to post pictures in a gallery on Acne. org! I have taken several before pictures. I KNOW I will be taking may more pictures very soon!!!!

Take care all,

Beauty B

Hey Beauty B...Thank you so much for your blog on retin-a! I just signed up myself today on this site...I have been dealing with light (has become more severe recently)acne for a while now. I just started my retin-a last night, and so far I don't feel any different. No burning, redness or peeling. I will be following your blog to see what I have to look forward to! Good luck! :)
