I haven't posted in a while because I am trying not to think so much about my skin. It makes it easier to wait for results if I don't assess my progress every half hour since I'm using a long term medication. Over the past week my cheeks have been very clear: only about two normal sized pimples on each, which is pretty good for me. I still have some decent red marks left over but they are fading quickly. My forehead an chin looked like war zones a couple days ago but my chin has healed pretty well. My forehead still has at least a dozen active pimples. I'm not stressing over my forehead much because I'm convinced that the Differin gets rid of small bumps on the surface by speeding up the process of them turning into pustules. It will probably take a while (my forehead is extremely bumpy), but I am starting to gain some confidence that this treatment will smooth and clear my skin. Luckily my forehead an chin don't mark very easily and clear up quickly after the inflammation subsides. Obviously I'm not very far into this process, but I am beginning to see some early promising results.
