Week 3 left side



My left side got worse and I'm starting to break out on my forehead. It's not pictured here but I'm also breaking out on my jawline which has never been a problem area for me. The good news is my skin is not as dry as it was last week.

Be strong, it's just a metter of time! My skin recently got better and its less red ! The product with tretinoin I was using was harsh and my skin was very red, as I have acne rosacea, but I think it happens with all the harsh products we use for pimples. if it's too red you should stop the treatment for two days in my opinion, let your skin breathe for a couple of days, then start again..

good luck!!

Same here, my skin broke out like crazy during the first weeks + extreme dryness which is not a joke at all. You said you had success with the regimen before. Just wondering, how long did it take for your skin to clear up? I'm on my 2nd month and still breaking out

Thank you! I'm glad to hear your skin is doing better :)

I honestly can't remember how long it took to completely clear my skin, but I want to say between 2 and 3 months. According to Dan it can take 3-4 months, so I would give it at least that before giving up! Even though you're still breaking out, has it improved at all?

I think my forehead has improved a bit but I still breakout on that area. My left cheek used to be clear but now its not. The problem with the new breakouts is that they leave scars which are either dark, deep, or both. But yes, I'm sticking to the regimen (because I don't know what else to do and I have the big bottles). Looking forward to your update! Best of luck!
