Tazorac And How It's Helped With My Acne And Red Marks/scars

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I've been on Tazorac consistently since december 10 not exactly sure which date but it's basically been near a month now. I was first prescribed with tazorac around the 2nd week of november. I first began to use it every day then every other day then to every 2 days due to how irritating it was was. The irritation was mostly due to my fault because like the dumbass I am, I was apply a pea sized amount to every part of my face (forehead,chin,cheeks, even upper lip). It was so irritating that I stopped using it for basically a whole week (the first week of december basically). Nonetheless here's some pics of the first month so far.

I had to use flash or else the camera wouldn't focus for some reason. My worse acne spot had always been my cheeks (right one especially) and my chin. My upper lip and forehead has been clear for ages now (previously I used epiduo). The last week and a half I've also cleans up my diet with no more soft drinks and pure water/natural home made fruits shakes. I also switched to almond milk.

My regime is pretty simple :

wake up and watch face with water and put on oil free neutrogena oil free moisturize sensitive skin

put on natural raw honey then rinse it when I take a shower.

at night it's the same as the morning, wash my face, put on moisturizer and then apply one pea size of tazorac 0.1 gel over my face softly.

I also use an exfoliater once or twice a week. But the tazorac is pretty strong in itself and thats why I stick to only exfoliating once or twice a week.

I seem to be left red spots from the acne I had and some very small holes from pimples I'm not sure you can notice (do those small hole scars stay like that forever?). Also in pic 2 under my only small pimple you'll see small red spot which was me basically fucking with my previous pimple and it left small discolored scar. I hope the redness/purple fades a away and fills up again.

Anyway I've been happy with the results, I'm not sure if I should count what I did with my skin on tazorac before december 10 since I was applying to much and then starting using it every other 2 days and then stopped for a week but I feel like for one month it's had very good results so maybe while using it wrong and inconsistently before, it still did its part.

PS: Yeah I shaved after I took these pics if you were asking me to do so lol.
