Start of week 5



It's the very beginning of week five and holy crap, my skin is so clear! There are still a few tiny scabs and red dots where some blemishes are still healing but I don't have any active pimples. My skin tone is very even as well, and I've noticed that I have almost zero clogged pores! That's such a miracle to me because in the past even when my skin was perfectly clear, I always had clogged pores in my problem areas. This is such a relief to me because now when my skin clears up it won't breakout again because there's nothing lurking inside my skin. The last little purging bumps on my forehead are beginning to subside and will be almost completely clear I hope in out a week. Don't give up on this stuff! It really does seem to be working! I will post a picture of my skin when it's finally cleared up hopefully in the next week or two.

This is SO weird!!!! Are you me?? Because I am going into my 5th week of 0.1 adapalene and i’m getting exactly what you’re talking about between my eyebrows on my forehead. I’ve ALSO had eczema on my face before which has cleared up completely except my eyes and above my lips be I was also scared that the retinoid might have been causing irritation to my previous eczema spots. I’m getting these tiny red bumps on my fore head and cheeks and I’m not sure what they are. They seem like rashes but they don’t itch, they’re not dry or sensitive. I don’t know. Hopefully this is all part of the “retinization period” and we just need to wait it out. Please keep updating your posts!
