Week 5: I think this is like the 2nd biggest breakout with Differin. BIGGEST breakout was my 2nd week. I have acne all over my face now. FAIL. HAH. But, I still stick to it. I believe in Differin. BTW, I'm using .3%

I'll be updating each week.

I need some questions to be answered:

1. How long is the initial breakout period?

2. Any signs that show that your acne is about to start clearing up? Or like a week that it would start working?

3. I have a pimple full of blood. What should I do with it? Hot compress?

4. If Differin doesn't work, and I need to use Accutane, will I have to go through the IB AGAIN?!

5. Differin swelled up my cheeks. How should I remove it?

Please answer my questions.

OH my routine:



Wash face with Cetaphil Gentle Face wash

Moisturize w/ Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion w/ SPF 15


Wash face with the Cetaphil Wash.


(I don't apply moisturizer because I only have the Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream. Also, I want differin to work and not want a moisturizer to negate some of it's effects. But, when I don't use moisturizer, my skin feels just a little tight.)

^My routine good?

Any suggestions or questions? Feel free to reply.

Thanks guys.

Please encourage me to stay confident and not quit on the Differin journey.
