I have changed my nightly routine!
1.Take as much makeup off with just water and my hands
2.Wash my face with cetaphil cleanser and a soft wash cloth
3.Use sea breeze toner for sensitive skin with cotton ball to make sure there is no makeup left
4.let face dry for 10 minutes
5.Apply atralin gel & Garnier fructise eye cream
6.On really bad spots I apply benzoyl peroxide %10 as a spot treatment, I know your not supposed to do this but I do anyway
and I've noticed some improvement since I have.
I still do not have any peeling or redness anymore which I'm actually confused about because I always hear people say "oh the peeling just shows that the retin-a is actually working" but I don't have peeling anymore! Does that mean it's not working!?!? Idk but today seems a lot better and I can see a lot of clearing, but I never know if it will last, It's seems like so far this has been a rollercoaster with tons of ups and downs. I go back to my derm a little closer to christmas time to go over my progress and see if this is working for me. Hopefully by then I will notice a teeeeny bit of improvement just so I don't give up so soon!
