  1. Day 7: Sunday, April 27, 2008: Still very bad. Popped a whole mess of pimples. Dry, flaky skin. No noticeable improvements, besides more acne.
  2. Day 5: Damn I picked at my face again...I need help seriously. Face feels really dry and tight. Hopefully new scabs go away soon. Depressed. Oh and I'm not going to shave any more until my face is clear, whenever that is.
  3. Day 4: Thursday, April 24, 2008 - Ok, so I had to go to a social event today and someone told me that if I had gotten sunburned really bad...it made me feel like I didn't want to be there...My sis also told me that my skin was peeling, which made me start sweating a lot as I got nervous the whole time. So I go home after...and I couldn't really tell that my face has reddened...maybe the lights in my house are too dim or something. Anyways, I put sunscreen this morning and it kind of stinged even
  4. thanks...at least i know now that i have more of an ingrown hair problem than acne...but it still sucks...im only 16 and i have to shave already...damn genes. I think Im just going to start shaving once a week or two weeks now...rather than every other day.
  5. yes i shave. so this would mean i have ingrown hair problem and acne problem. this sucks...and all my pimples always look like bruises or something...its not fun.
  6. Ok, so I know squeezing pimples are bad but today I squeezed a few and a lot of them had hairs in them that came out with the pimple. Is this normal with acne or does it mean I suffer from razor pimples (because I did shave today). Its also weird because sometimes some white thing will just be sticking out like its a hair on my face but I can actually pull it out....any answers? thanks.
  7. Day 3: Wednesday, April 23, 2008 - Ok...so I got really depressed and started squeezing some pimples...yeah I don't really wanna say anything else. It's bad. I need to stop looking in the mirror. Ok so I promise myself today that I'm going to stop squeezing no matter what. I guess I shouldn't care what other people think so I'm just going to stop starting tomorrow. I promise. As far as the Retin-A, there was no bad dryness today. and I've switched to the Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisturizer with SPF
  8. Ok I know I already posted this, but I believe I may have posted it in the wrong area of the forums. Hi, I have some quick questions. Im on Retin-A and I was wondering if its okay to apply it immediately after I shave (which is in the evening), which means I wouldnt be applying a moisturizer or aftershave. Or, is it okay to shave and follow with after shave, the wait for like an hour, wash face again, wait 30 minutes and then apply retin-A? or would that be to harsh since I would be washing my
  9. Day 2: Tuesday, April 22, 2008 - (ok so im actually on day 3 but...) Ok so my face wasn't that dry, but nonetheless it was still a bit dry, as it usually is after I wash my face in the morning. Ok, so more acne appeared around that one area where I had the larger bump on my left side? Could it be due to the fact that I tried to squeeze it and the bacteria spread? because if thats the case then I really dont want to be trying to squeeze pimples if its just going to spread more around the area. I
  10. Hi, I have some quick question.s Im on Retin-A and I was wondering if its okay to apply it immediately after I shave (which is in the evening), which means I wouldnt be applying a moisturizer or aftershave. Or, is it okay to shave and follow with after shave, the wait for like an hour, wash face again, wait 30 minutes and then apply retin-A? or would that be to harsh since I would be washing my face too much? Moreover, is it okay to apply Retin-A over an aftershave? thanks.
  11. Hi, Im 16 years old, boy, I'm new to the forums and I thought I would keep a log of my Retin-A experience. You can just call me RJ. I tried Proactive and I guess it worked to some extent...there were days when I was clear of acne but things just werent getting better so I stopped ProActive. Things just kept getting worse... everyday now I wake up with a new face problem. I don't know if it can be due to shaving because this year is the year I started shaving and now I'm at the point where I have
