My Tretinoin Journey: Week 15 Results
Dec. 13, 2020Leave a comment
My Tretinoin Journey has come to an end for the past week or so. Just for now. Here’s to another week without Tret! I guess. lol.
Day 99: So BP dried out my skin. I’m left with super dry skin that feels very uncomfortably tight. Ugh! I made sure to moisturize my skin with moisturizers that are not pore clogging. They’re not the most moisturizing, but they’re better than nothing.
Day 100: After going through some very dry skin, my skin started to flake off, especially around my mouth area. My skin looks clearer and a lot smoother. No new big, inflamed pimples. Just tiny ones from under the surface. This is interesting. BP did my skin some good! 👍🏻
A wrap up of what I’m using (may change soon):
- Taz: Every night unless I’m using BP.
- BP: Starting with once a week. I decided not to use it in the morning because I don’t have time for it to dry on my skin, and it’s difficult to layer other products on top of it.
- Cosrx AHA/BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner: Every morning.
- The Ordinary Lactic Acid 10% + HA 2%: Starting with 3 times a week.
Day 101: Skin is flaking today. A few new tiny pimples. The overall appearance of my complexion is SO MUCH BETTER! It’s softer and smoother. It’s not rough, dry anymore. My skin improved! 😁😀
Day 102: Decided to use BP tonight. I was hesitant to use it because the first time it was…burning my skin. Don’t worry, that’s a sign that it’s working. When I applied BP to my skin tonight, it went well. I still felt that burning sensation, but it wasn’t too bad. The BP absorbed into my skin pretty quick. If I see improvements with BP, I’m going to bump it up to 2 times a week. I’ll have to see how it goes first. Who knows, maybe 3. Why not try it out again? It might work this time around. :]
Day 103: Another day with improvements with BP. This is unbelievable. I think it’s working for me again (like it did before). I can see skin flaking from my face, while congested pores are moving up to the surface and getting smaller at the same time. This is where BP has an advantage over retinoids. It kills bacteria. I’m so happy that I’m giving BP another chance!
Day 104: Skin looks good today, but it seems to look better after a night of using BP. I had some flakes today. Same old.
Day 105: I decided to use BP 3-4 times a week depending on my skin condition. All I can say is, it’s working SO WELL! My skin is getting used to it as the days go on. I can tell that it’s effective because my skin stings a little bit when I apply it. But after a few hours, my skin calms down and so do the active pimples. I’m really looking forward to next week! Results have been amazing with BP! 🙂
