Ah, the time just goes so quickly...

Tomorrow night will mark my 2 weeks on the retin a treatment. At this point, I am LOVING my dermatologist for prescribing me this regimen. I have to admit, at first I thought she was full of it, and her suggestions were not going to help. However, as it turns out....My face is like 99% clear right now! :shhh:

Yesterday for the first time in a very long time, I was without make up for several hours throughout the day, and I wasn't ashamed! I still have a few of the red scars left, but those are drastically fading. Now, with tomorrow being my 2 week mark, I am fully expecting a major break out coming my way- I have not experienced any kind of IB what-so-ever. I think it's still too soon to know? Anyone else go two weeks without getting the IB? Either way, I am preparing myself mentally for the purge.

Here is my regimen- In the morning I wash with Cetaphil gently, and just gently massage my face with it, a lot of the "dead" skin just comes right off. Apply Cetaphil moisturizing CREAM, and then my foundation.

In the evenings, I take a shower, the steam (my opinion) has really been good for my skin. Wash face with cetaphil, and twice a week I will use the apricot scrub. Apply Retin-A pea size, and take the Doxycycline.

My mood right now as you can probably guess is GREAT!! :shhh:

Will update again next week...
