Week Four (New Treatment)




Solodyne 65mg / day

Ziana Gel PM

Apple Cider Vinegar AM (for PIH)

Tetrinoin Gel AM

Cetaphil Moisturizing Cleanser

Cetaphil Moisturizing Sunblock

Symptoms: None; moderate breakout; headaches have subsided

Experience: Up until the beginning of week four, I had not broken out since the beginning of my new treatment. Unfortunately, I did experience a moderate breakout during week four. Two inflammed pimples, one on my cheek bone and the other on my jawline. I've also been getting very small whiteheads on my forehead and underneath my jawlin. From past experiences with retinoids, I'm willing to bet the whiteheads are a result of the Ziana finally purging my skin. As for the two larger blemishes, I'm really not sure, but they did go down pretty quickly. I'm still suffering from some pretty bad PIH, so I've added ACV to my AM regime. Doing yoga more often and working out to a sweat in order to clear pores (and tightened butt :| ). Overall, I'm not dissapointed and believe that the breakout was necessary to cleanse my skin. I'm also due for my "visit" soon, so I'm sure that has something do to with it. My main concern is the PIH. I pushed my derm appointment to July 2, so then I will ask for a treatment for PIH and possibly an increased dosage of Solodyne since my body seems to be tolerating it well. As for Ziana, I'm sticking with it for 12 weeks as suggested. I'm purging now, but its not that bad really.
