Boo. Breakout.



In the middle of week 4 of Differin now and I just got a breakout. Ok it's like 4 tiny bumps beside each other but it sucks none the less. I felt weird and strange because I had zero new acne since I started it because I seems most people have crazy IBs! I can deal with the new acne because these 4 tiny things are all the acne I have. My face is SO red and hyperpigmentated though. Totally sucks but I would prefer it to acne.

The dryness has subsided a little thank god. I felt like a snake every morning when I looked in the mirror it's so gross seeing your face fall off. But when you realise underneath is poreless, scarless, acneless, soft skin it's worth it. I can't believe I was ever terrified to start a retinoid because for me I am finally making true progress skin wise. It may not last, this I know, but right now I am happy with what is happening.
