Day 109- Praying My Skin Heals Fast!



It's Day 109...only a few days away from the 4 month mark of being on RetinA and OrthoTriCyclen (I stopped taking Spironolactone a few weeks ago, but may get back on it after talking with my dermatologist this week).

I have a red mark on my left chin, a couple of red marks on my right cheek that are healing slowly, and a red mark on my right chin.

I'm trying to help my skin heal as much as I can by cleansing it, moisturizing it, and applying antibiotic cream to protect it.

I really, really hope there's significant healing from today to tomorrow. Please. Please heal, skin!

The rest of my face really feels like it's gotten rid of a ton of clogged pores, which is encouraging. I'm hoping the start of month 5 on Wednesday will be a great step forward to clearer skin!

I'm so happy for you! You have to get in the habit of leaving your skin alone when on a retinoid. The acne and marks will resolve on their own.

Thank you! These marks have really had me down the past week. I've pretty much been hiding out for the past like 4 days :(

I need to remember to be a lot more gentle with my skin
