Differin week 10 to 12

Lhong

Hey readers

This is my late update for week 10 to 12. So here they are...
Week 10: acne still coming up. Probably 5 to 10 in 1 week. Benzac did help a lot with minimizing the pain and size. I wanna cryyyyyy.

Week 11: thing get much better but still ocassionally, 2 to 5 cysts appear. Benzac is the hero for this situation as I guess so far, since I have been using benzac, acen slightly become less servere. Thx benzac

Week 12: so thsi is it. 3 months of using differin and 4 weeks of using benzac. Now I should rate the overall outcome...

Acne: around 50% less acne prone than week 1 to 4. Week 4 to week 8 was the worst of all. I could just bury my face and disappear. I would give 7 out of 10 as there is still acne coming and with help of benzac. So that means differin didn't do much when using alone.

Skin texture: I would give 7 out of 10 as my skin feel smoother than before.

Severity of acne: reduce almost 60%. Before I start differin, I could get a big cyst and come with redness and whiteheand and pain altogether amd it could stay for 1 month at least. Now, I feel that acne becomes smaller with less redness and small whitehead. I would give 8 out of 10.

Acne frequency: for week 1 to 8, acne popped up everywhere everyday. I just have to wake up and check my skin if there is any new bump and there were many. For week 9 to 10, things got better but yet sastify. Week 11 to week 12, acne comes and goes with less frequency than before (2 to 5 cysts a week). I would give 6 out of 10. 

Acne scar: differin does help with this and vbeam as well as smooth beam laser help them too. From week 8 to 12, I mainly relied on differin as laser is quite expensive. I would give 7 for laser and 6 for differin about scar.

Overall: I would give 7 out of 10. I thx differin And benzac but I have high hope for this but until week 12, it didn't meet my expectation that much. I will still using these two for another 12 weeks and will keep update as the 2nd tier of differin journey.
