so when i first started using tretinoin, i used this generic brand and that lasted for like three months and for a while my skin was getting better. when i ran out, i bought a new brand of tretinoin, retin a. in retrospect it did break me out a lot. now i'm on my fourth month, entering my fifth month of using retin a and
-i'm still oily
-still breaking out but i have clear areas on my face as opposed to before when my face was covered w/ acne
-my skin is smooth
really kind of losing hope and everything on retin a but i'm going to push this until june and if nothing happens then i might really have to ditch retin a
right now i have approximately 10 pimples on my face and a lot of pih. 10 is a far cry from my innumerable pimples a month ago so i can say that things are improving but idk anymore
still taking vitamin d, a and niacin
ran out of zinc
found out that milk of magnesia can really help your skin stay matte for 7 hours. it really works for me so you should try it if you have horribly oily skin like mine.
-sorry for not posting pics i just dont feel like showing my skin as of the moment. just wanted to give you guys and update.
continue fighting the battle against bad skin!
-still have mild acne on my back and chest but way better than before
