Second Week



So this week is my second week, and I have most of all the side effects of using Tretinoin in the initial process. Comparing the second week with my first week, my skin peeled less, but it still peels, I still do have initial breakouts here and there, but I always end up picking at them (I am assuming it is because I had finals this week and also some relationship tensions), but yes I know it is very bad. I now found out what made my skin burn, it was not the day cream of Benzoyl peroxide, but my sunscreen. It is very weird, so i switched my sunscreen this week. The place that breaks out the most is my right jaw. There is a lot of hyper pigmentation and breakouts there, not a good mix. My skin is now still very dry, tight, flaky, and some breakouts.
Here is my daily routines for those who  are curious

-Cleanser with Lancome Gel radiance (I am planning to change it to something less drying like Ultra Gentle Cleanser by Neutrogena, but i want to use this up first)
-No 9 eye cream
-Benzoyl Peroxide 5%
- Dry touch Ultra sheer 45 spf sunscreen (this is the new one that has not burned me yet)

- Lancome Gel Radiance Cleanser
-No 9 eye cream
-Benefique moisterizer (mixed with tea tree oil)
-Tretinoin 0.025%
