Week 2



2 weeks after using differin, i had major breakouts in my forehead and cheeks. Some of the closed comedones are gone. Now, i have 6 papulopustules on my forehead. The good thing about this is they are usually gone within 3 to 4 days with no scarring, just hyperpigmentation which eventually goes away. I experience a little stinging sensation but only when i touch my face such us washing. No redness or dryness so far. Overall, my experience with my current regimen is tolerable. The breakouts are expected. I am sticking with differin since i have tried almost everything which either did nothing or just worsen my preexisting condition. I am not looking for a quick fix because i believe there is no such thing as that when it comes to acne. Despite what some youtuber claims. I am looking for treatment backed up with real science to restore the clear skin i once had (but failed to take care of). Hence, differin. So patience and more patience!

Current regimen:
1. Differin 0.1 in pm
2. Spot treat with benzac in am
3. Lifestyle change
4. No picking
5. Cetaphil face wash twice a day
