7 - Day 36 (Pics Included)



My week started off rough. Many break outs, redness and texture wasn't good. I woke up this morning and saw noticeable improvement. I hope this is the turning point. The thing is, my good and bad days alternate. Every time I think I have a good day, the next day will 100% be bad and vice versa.

My left side has more break outs than the right. It's the most reactive area of the treatment. Although there are many dark spots, only 3 of them are under the skin pimples or something and they just chill there for a while. I notice when I get pimples with heads, especially on my forehead, they will get golden very quickly and I can just lightly peel it off. Applying make up has been easier because there aren't many bumps and I'm simply concealing discolouration.

My favourite thing to do at night when I apply Steiva-A is to apply the cream on top of any dark spots to pretend it's not there (like white chicken pox or something lol) and just appreciate how smooth and soft the surrounding area is. Gives me great hope of the ending results!

First three photos: top are photos from the middle of week 4 and bottoms are Week 5 mark.

Last three photos: top are photos from the Week 5 mark (yesterday) and this morning just to show my skin in normal lighting as well.

Don't you just hate retinoids! I'm supposed to be going back on tretinoin .50% and definitely not looking forward to it. I do see improvement though. My left side has become my bad side too

hope everything continues to improve.
