Week 4

End of week 4 update. I've been on differin for 1 month! I still do get break outs, characterized as red papulopustules but they resolve within a week. Some of them grow on previous lesions while others on closed comedones. Some closed comedones do not get inflamed, but just extrude a hard white sebum, like the comedone is pushed upward from underneath the skin.

I don't experience dryness or redness but my skin is super oily! I don't get much peeling except on area around my lower lip. 

Overall, to summarize my 1 month experience with differin i'm still getting breakouts every week. Honestly, for 4 weeks i never get rest period with my breakouts. Im happy though that my face feels smoother. The hyperpigmentation is still there. Some of the closed comedones are gone. I still have blackheads. They say it takes 2-3 months to see a clinically significant effect on differin, so im patiently waiting for that. So far i can say its definitely working however restoring my clear skin will surely take time.

Same regimen.
I will be updating monthly from here onwards :)
