hi every one...i m back with something reallly great for the skin:-)

well i was on retin a for 5 months i was cleared up then suddenly got horrible breakout and i realized that all my 5 month's patience was ruined...my skin was worse again:-( then i quit retin a....

then my fiance took me to a derm who gave me acne aid cleanser,retin a and hydrocorisone 1%...he said that i have to apply retin a 70%+ hydrocotisone 30% for two hours at nite & on every alternate nite...not daily...coz skin becomes immune to it...and he also advised me to apply double (not just pea sized) i have been using it for a month results were ok...no flaking no redness.. then i read about ocm....and i decided to give it a try...i just used evoo,extra virgin olive oil!!!!

and in just one week my bumps are gone...pih is fading..(my pih is horrible) and now i can tolerate it...pores are much much smaller...i love it....

Be careful. I never really break out and I only used it for 3 days and I'm still having stuff come up at least 4 days later after stopping. I wish I never did it. I have no idea how long it will continue. I only used it a few days so I am stunned I am dealing with things cropping up still.

I hate how I can't use anything moisturizing. I loved the idea of the OCM.

i used retin a for 5 months at the end of 4th month my face cleared up and then on 5th month it broke out real bad...yesterday i was reading about some herbs and then i read an article about green tea...that drinking green tea helps clearing acne..and now i can clearly remember that when my face was clearing up and i had this misconception that retin a is clearing it up...actually that wasnt becoz of green tea..those days 1 was drinking 5 cups of green tea per day and my face cleared up within 2 weeks and when i ran out of it i stopped drinking green tea and within a week i broke out real bad...

so now i know the secret and i have started drinking green tea daily...4 cups per day...and hoping to clearup soon :dance:

Don't use the hydrocortisone regularly, frequently, or over your whole face as that will contribute to facial skin atrophy, redness, susceptibility to bacterial/fungal/yeast infections, and a possibility of steroid-induced rosacea. ONLY use it briefly, once every few weeks or so.
