My Tretinoin Journey: Week 16 Results

Drinking water

Day 106: I have a little bit of purging going on. A few pimples here and there. They’re very unnoticeable to the eye. My overall skin texture is looking so good as the days go on! I know I’ve said this many times, but I’m ‘finally’ seeing improvements. If you have acne, a combination of acne treatments is the way to go. Tret alone is not going to cut it. At least it didn’t for me.

Another product I’m using is The Ordinary Mandelic 10% + HA. I’m using it along with the The Ordinary Lactic Acid 10% + HA 2%. I hope it works. 🀞🏻

Day 107: The acne from yesterday are smaller in size. This is unbelievable. My skin is actually moving in the right direction. I love it so much!

Day 108: A few new pimples in breakout-prone areas. Nothing too bad. More skin peeling from my face. πŸ™‚ My skin is looking better and better every day! YAY! I’m so happy! So I’m currently experimenting with lactic acid and mandelic acid. Let’s see how many days a week my skin can handle them. They seem very gentle on my skin so far. My skin doesn’t feel that dry. Hmmm.

Day 109: After a couple of days of using mandelic acid, I don’t think it’s right for me. It’s clogging my pores. It may just be the base of the serum that’s clogging my pores. Who knows. Sooo I stopped using it. I’ll stick to lactic acid instead, which is working very well on my skin. I shed a little bit every time I use it + it doesn’t clog my pores. =)

Day 110: After a day without using The Ordianary Mandelic 10% + HA, my skin went back to normal. πŸ™‚

So I’m officially starting Tretinoin 0.05% tonight! YES! Back on Tret! I will be alternating it with BP. Not sure what I’m going to do with Taz. It’s OK. Let’s see if Tret 0.05 is better for me or not. If not, I can always go back to Taz. Let’s get started! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

Day 111: After the first night of using Tret, my skin felt warm and hot. I really don’t know what to expect, but I’m hoping for positive results after being on this journey for 16 weeks (which is a very long time).

Day 112: I decided to use Tret for the rest of the week while spot treating with BP. My skin did flake a bit. I noticed some pimples popping out of nowhere. Skin felt a little itchy. I’m trying my best to moisturize my skin. So glad I removed a bunch of mositurizers out, some of them were doing more damage than good.

Some things I’m changing…

It was an alright week. Let’s see what next week brings! =)
