Please answer the week 2 poll!

WEEK  2 RECAP

  • By day 8 I saw improvement where my skin wasnt as dry, and by day 9 my skin had mostly adjusted to the adapelene and was no longer dry. (I still get a flakey patch here and there but nothing like i had the first week.) 
  • Over week 2, the redness of my skin was a rollercoaster. It was good on day 8-10 but for some reason day 11 brought about a wave of redness and irritation
  • On Day 12  I experienced a moderate breakout on my forehead and on my right side of my chin, both of which are still there.
  • By day 13 i decided to really avoid skin irritation and all costs and be extra extra gentle with my skin going forward


Skin Condition

  • The acne marks on my cheeks looked better today when i woke up than they ever have
  • Same for the discoloration on my upper lip
  • My chin is looking better too.
    • still a little bumpy but only 1 whitehead
  • The most irritation and acne is at the corners of my mouth , in the jowl area.
    • I have lots of tiny hard whiteheads and a little redness in that area
  • my forehead is looking less inflamed but it still has many, many bumps
  • The cystic pimple is gone, but a small whitehead is in its place...weird
 
Application
  • This morning
    • I GENTLY ashed my face with my sulfacleanse 
    • I applied some moisturizer
  • I took my doxycycline
  • Before bed
    • I washed my face with sulfacleanse
    • I applied a dot of moisturizer on a dry patch near my mouth
    • I waited 20 minutes
    • I applied adapelene all over my face
    • I waited 5 minutes
    • I applied moisturizer
 
Feelings/Thoughts/Observations
  • Still havent popped or picked anything since my "be gentle" epiphany...im proud.
  • Im glad i didnt exfoliate the peeling on my face last night becauuse it would have been undessecary exfoliation. It seems to be gone on its own this morning.
  • I might exfoliate tomorrow morning and make it a habit to exfoliate twice a week
