So I totally have been distracted by horrificnessss that was Retin A!
I had done soooo well in clearing my skin and nearly clearing my red marks when I last posted. However it went horribly wrong as about 3-4 weeks into retin a I got a terrible breakout from it.... everyone says stick with it for the 3 months, it always gets worse before it gets better etc... So, I did. It just got worse and worse and worse... red marks were being left everywhere and it was a total mess!
3 months came and it looked dreadful, no signs of improving either. So I switched to epiduo, after 2 weeks I got yet another breakout. I was very close to quitting it all together, but i decided i should give the new retinoid a bit more of a chance to work.
Im currently a month in, and Im pleased to say that the inflamed spots, dry skin etc has all died down... Im still getting a couple of pimples here and there but its vastly improved.
BUT im back to square one with my HP marks
So currently i am splashing my face with water in the morning, or just leaving it completely
Im using mineral makeup
In the evenings Im removing eye makeup with an eyemakeup remover and then splashing skin with cool water, I mix water into some cream cleanser and remove my facial makeup and rinse with cool water. I wait 30 mins to apply the epiduo, then another 30mins to apply boots expert scar serum. (sometimes i dont bother with the last bit)
