Almost 4 weeks- and still going strong



Well acne.org users...

This week will be my 4th week on tretinoin/duac. I must say that I have stopped waking up to feel my face immediately. Although I do still run to the mirror right away to see what my skin is looking like!

I have had a few small break outs here and there, but nothing like I had before I started this regimen. I used to have those really deep painful, large, pimples on my cheeks that would ALWAYS leave a scar. The red marks are slowly fading- although it seems that my face gets MUCH dryer in the spots where I have scars. Now if I can just get myself to stop picking- even at the little ones!

I have had ups and downs....there was a time that my skin was so friggin dry- no matter how much moisturizer I used, it was so dry and cracked! There are still times when I wash my face, and it burns....or when I put the cream on , it stings a little. I just have to remember to take it one day at a time....it's nowhere near perfect- but it's much improved.
