Initial breakout?!

happily after


Yesterday I posted a suggestion request on holistic and diet board but no one seem to have experience with safflower oil. 

By looking at my picture log, I think this is a IB because under skin hard bumps have been reduced even though some got inflamed to cysts.. Well I am prone to cysts on my chin so those are expected. My other acne prone areas like my eyebrows and in between eyebrow seem to stop breaking out. There were hard under skin clogs and now I cannot really feel those anymore with my finger.

Another thing is that I wasn't really able to start to use tretinion until I figured out a way to clean my face without too much irritation and dryness. So technically speaking, I only have been using tretinoin cream for around 8 days. For my record, I started consistently using tretinoin since 3/1/16.

(Wiping my face with microfiber cloth, I think I will stop doing this as I found it irritates my morning face)
Safflower oil with drops of water to moisturize
