Retin A Micro Update

Quick Retin a micro update... 

Still using Retin a micro but as of last week I started using it two times a week as opposed to one. I am still experiencing the same side effects as before - flakiness... which seems to show up about two days after I apply it and last for about two days. I haven't noticed anything else such as redness or sensitive skin. On the nights I do not use retin a, I am using very healing moisturizers, tamanu oil, or my paulas choice intensive weekly peel (I have been using this once a week for the last several months but I might slow it down to once every two weeks due to increasing my retin a micro usage). 

Also, had quite a breakout on my chin which coincidentally showed up after Christmas (which was two weeks of eating nothing but pure junk... carbs, dairy, sugar, and processed foods galore). My skin is clearly ready for me to start eating healthy again! 

I'll continue to track my progress and any side effects with the retin a as well as how my diet is doing and how my skin is doing.
