After 1 Year And 1 Month...



I have been using Retin A for 1 year and 1 month. It cleared me up really nicely. Better than anything in the past ever has. However, I was never completely clear. I would still breakout and pretty consistently have 1 or 2 mild pimples. Of course, that wasn't good enough for me so I tried to add to my regimen and ended up breaking out from it. I don't remember when that was, but my skin hasn't been quite as good since. (I know, I hate myself for being too greedy).

Anyways, my skin is going through, probably the worst breakout in MONTHS at the moment, and I really don't know why!

I am still using my Cerave cleanser and my .1% Retin A every single day. I was also using Peter Thomas Roth's 10% glycolic acid pads and have been using them with nice results for the past month-ish.

But suddenly, redness is up, irritation is up, I've got a deep, painful, and slightly itchy pimple on my right cheek and various, more mild ones elsewhere. Drives. Me. INSANE!

Anyways, I want to stick to this:

Cerave Cleanser

Retin A

Hormone Balance pills (2 months in on these...soooo hoping they help!)

Apple Cider vinegar tablets

Nightly honey face mask.

I HAVE to stop experimenting. My skin just can't do it.

So back to the basics with additional hormone balancing supplements and mask that i KNOW is only beneficial to me. Honey calms breakouts and redness so well. Totally organic and non-irritating, bacteria-fighting as well as moisturizing. I'm just logging as as a way to give myself some....accountability.
