safflower oil- 3rd week benchmark

happily after


3/8 will be my third week of using safflower oil. My chin is still a mess up. Under skin clogs just inflamed to cysts..  There are giant harden clogs formed and fall out every now and then, even though I don't know if this is a good sign or not..

I don't notice a increase in acne though. My acne still are very localized (my chin and my forehead, my eyebrows and between my eyes) My between eyes area and my eyebrows seem to stop popping acne as I don't really feel under skin clogs with my finger.. I see some improvements on those area. And also since I stopped using any cleanser, my face don't feel dry any more and I am able to use medication every night. That's why I kept using safflower oil.

I really hope this is the Initial breakout triggered by tretinoin instead of safflower oil is giving me nasty cyst nodules... 

Regime still the same
Safflower oil with water to moisturize
Elta MD UV Shield
Cargo liquid foundation
Laura Mercier dual concealer

Cotton pad soaked with safflower oil and wipe the whole face/neck
Mircofiber cloth to wipe off again
Treitinoin 0.025
