My Tretinoin Journey: Week 11 Results
Nov. 15, 2020Leave a comment
My week 11 results 🙂
Day 71: So I decided to apply Tret directly on my skin. No more sandwiching. I’m still moisturizing afterwards. I can’t imagine not applying moisturizer to my skin at night. I woke up this morning with a few new pimples. Skin doesn’t feel dry, irritated, or itchy. Some skin peeling going on. I’m just going to hope for the best after changing my method of applicaton! 🙌🏻
Day 72: My skin is still feeling fine. I’m still not experiencing dryness or itchyness. I’m happy about that. Right now, I’m dealing with pimples purging from my jawline. All of a sudden, they appeared out of nowhere. Hmm. Hopefully they go away soon because I can’t stand to look at them. It’s going to be an interesting week due to changing how I apply Tret. I’m looking forward to it! 🤞🏻
Day 73: More purging going on today. It’s in the most random places too. These pimples are not your typical acne. They are disappearing very fast (as fast as they appeared). Wow, my skin isn’t dry at all. There is no irritation or itchiness going on still, which is good. Not much to report today. My skin is just purging and healing from it.
Day 74: The pimples from the purge are shrinking. 🙂 Another day with hydrated skin. Honestly, I think my skin is way too hydrated. Thought about skipping a night without putting moisturizer on, but I decided against it. lol. Trying my best to stick to this moisturizing routine. It’s good to moisturize the skin to keep it supple and hydrated. Also, I am going to gradually move back to my Trader Joe’s Tea Tree Face Wash. I tried it, and my skin didn’t sting. I don’t think Derma E Hydrating Gentle Facial Cleanser is as good as my Trader Joe’s Tea Tree Face Wash. TJ’s leaves my skin feeling cleaner.
Day 75: Used TJ’s Tea Tree Face Wash this morning. It went well. No stinging. Left my skin feeling cleaner too. It wasn’t drying. 🙂 So my skin isn’t peeling that much anymore, but I am breaking out in odd places. Not much to call home about though. Seems like they just pop up and disappear within a day or two.
Day 76: It’s official. I’m back to my old face wash. It is working better for me than Derma E’s. Fortunately for me, it’s cheaper too and more accessible. My skin is looking good. This may be the last ‘purging’ phase. My skin is smoothing out. But, after that, I have to deal with the marks left behind. Bleh. 🙁
Day 77: It’s the end of the 11th week! All of the acne that popped up at the beginning of the week are gone. I did get a few new breakouts by the end of the week. :/ I feel like I’m starting to purge all over again once using Tret directly on my skin. Hmm, now let’s move on to next week and see what happens. ha.
