Day 1



Hi all! I have finally started to begin documenting my acne progress because recently my derm changed up some things in my treatment. Today is my first day retin a at night, along with aczone during the day. Before today, i had been on a aczone and ziana (aczone am, ziana pm) regimen for 3 months. During those 3 months my acne became significantly better but also had its ups and downs. My derm put me on retin a because I started to get tiny little bumps in the center of my forehead and chin. Why? I have no idea :( I guess acne has a mind of its own. I also recently started BC, but I'm really not sure if that's the cause or not. Anyways, I would be so grateful to hear about other people's experiences with aczone and retin a, so please comment :)

I'm too lazy to take pictures of my face right now so I'll give you a general idea of my skin. Currently I have a weird cluster of 4/5 small bumps smack dab in the middle of my forehead, 2 medium sized pimples on my chin, a few scattered pimples around my cheeks, and some veeeery light scarring on the sides of my face (they faded a ton thanks to ziana).

I will probably update my progress weekly if not every 3-4 days, hopefully with pictures.

Thanks, and good luck to anyone starting this regimen or a new one!
