My Clear Skin Journey: Week 1 Results

Leave a comment

It’s time for me to start a different journey! πŸ™ŒπŸ» I think I did this one before (haha), but I’m still trying to get my skin to clear up from acne. 😭 It comes and goes. It’s a lot better than before, but it’s not what it used to be like last summer. So my Tretinoin Journey has come to an end. Read more about it below. πŸ™‚ That doesn’t mean I’m going to stop using Tret. It’ll be a part of my routine, but it’s not the main focus. I haven’t seen life-changing results with Tret. I don’t think it’s the right acne treatment for me. I haven’t seen results that many others have experienced. I’m one of the unlucky few, unfortunately. 😒 So come with me on my Clear Skin Journey to find products that work on my skin to fight against acne!

Here’s my WEEK 1 results! πŸ˜ƒ Read Days 1-4 here.

What I’m doing, the plan (most likely will change, haha):

My skin care routine is pretty simple to someone that loves skin care. <3 I’ve eliminated a lot of skin care products. Using a lot of skin care products may have contributed to clogged pores too. My skin is feeling and looking better after 4 days of doing this.

Let’s move on to Day 5! πŸ™ŒπŸ»

Day 5: I mentioned quitting  The Ordinary Marixyl 10% + HA in my previous post. After stopping this serum, all of the hard sebum that were stuck in my pores vanished! The serum definitely gave me under the skin breakouts that were stubborn and difficult to remove! My skin is moving in the right direction now. I think I’ve said that more than a billion times. But, this time it’s different. I feel like I self-sobataged myself from using a lot of skin care products. πŸ™ Well, what’s done has been done. I’m ready to take on this new journey! Can’t wait to see results!!

Day 6: My skin IS IMPROVING!! All of the crusty skin is coming off. The closed comedones slowly moving up to the surface. My skin looks healthier. I really had to learn the hard way. Don’t use too many skin care products!! Just enough. Enough for your skin type and needs. More of something doesn’t mean better. I’m amazed how my skin turned around within this week just by dropping most of the skin care products I was using. I was just doing too much to my skin.

It’s day 6, and my skin is peeling! πŸ™‚

Day 7: It’s been 5 days of using Taz, and my skin is purging and clearing up. A thin layer of skin peeled from my face last night. It just came right off. Closed comedones are coming out! I can see my skin flaking off, but I haven’t experienced extreme dryness from Taz. Only slight irritation and itchiness. There’s some stinging too, especially when I apply other skin care products to my skin. For example, my SPF moisturizer. I gotta say, it’s nothing like when I was on Tret. Now I can’t wait to see results in a few months! Things are starting to turn around. =)

I said I was going to use Tret 2 times a week, but my skin has improved after 5 days using Taz. I’m going to stick with Taz and introduce Tret months in. Taz is working! As always, monitor my skin.

Alright! πŸ˜„ See everyone next week! πŸ˜ƒ
