7 Days Until 6 Months On A Topical Retinoid



I've finished 23 full weeks on a topical retinoid, and I have just 7 days until I can say that I've been on this regimen for a full 6 months.

I've been keeping up with my birth control (Ortho Tri-Cyclen), Topical Retinoid at night (Atralin 0.05%), and Spironolactone (75 mg in the AM).

RIght now, I have a couple of small red marks on my right cheek/ jaw from pores purging, and one pore that purge on my right cheek bone today. I have one red mark on my chin from a pore that purged, but also sensitive skin that reacted badly to the Atralin.

I'm focusing on letting my skin heal and being gentle with it. I'm finally feeling like most of the pores on my face have purged and that my face is very clear! :)

Here's to being gentle with my skin and things continuing to improve! Keep me in your thoughts and prayers, please!
