Week 14 On Tretinoin

feeling really discouraged right now because i'm getting a lot of negative feedback from a lot of users that i should stop retin a as it didn't do anything for them.

switched brands just last week and i don't know if i'm breaking out because of that or i dont even know anymore

my skin is really ugly right now. pimples everywhere, bumpy texture on my forehead, clogged and large pores, pustules,hyperpigmentation, scars (thank God i only have like one deep scar that the retin a can kind of heal)

finally bought flush free niacin as i've heard a lot of good reviews about it reducing oil, and clearing up acne.

still taking vitamin d, vitamin a and zinc.

wishing the best of luck for all of us. acne is shit and i hope we can all clear up from it.

thank god for my friends not judging me even though i have shitty skin as of the moment

From my experience with retinoids, 14 weeks should be the time you begin to see improvements. Maybe it's time to switch retinoids and look into lifestyle and diet changes. Retinoids never got me even close to being clear but I am now trying to implement a holistic approach and hoping that it conjunction with a topical it helps. Give the supplements 3 months to BEGIN to work. Also, if you can afford it, I highly recommend a naturopath.
