1 month on Retin A Micro 0.08% gel and Clindamycin gel

I am now a month into using Retin-A Micro 0.08% gel, along with Clindamycin gel or Clindamycin Topical Solution. I am still breaking out, but not as much as I was before and my skin tone looks a little better than it did before I started. I had a lot of little bumps on my forehead, between my eyebrows, on my cheeks, and a few under the skin pimples that were a little big. My skin tone looked really horrible as well.  I don't get huge pimple or pimples all that much any more. I think the Retin-A is pulling out whiteheads and blackheads at this point. That's what it looks like to me. I really wish it would just stop breaking out all together so I can have my clear skin back, like I achieved a few years ago when I first went to my derm. I am sticking it out until I go back to my derm at the end of February. I was using Neutrogena Clear Pore wash with these two topicals, but I had to quit because Retin-A is a very strong retinoid and it was making my skin more red and sensitive to the Neutrogena wash. So now I use Purpose gentle cleanser and I will stick with that while I continue to use Retin-A.


Wash with Purpose Cleanser, exfoliate flakey/dead skin off with fingers while in the shower, pat dry.
Apply Clindamycin gel, wait 10 minutes to apply moisturizer, apply Covergirl outlast foundation & thin layer of Physicians Formula Mineral Veil powder. On the days I am not going to work, I use the Physicians Formula Correcting Kit that I got from Walmart. It's very light on my skin and doesn't break me out and gives me a break from foundation.

Take off makeup with Equate Wipes, wash with Purpose cleanser 2x, pat dry, then apply Retin-A.
