2 Weeks Tret Experience! Is It Working?? What I’m Doing Now!

Eucerin Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Face Cream

Here’s my experience after 2 weeks of using tret! It’s been a whirlwind. I’m glad I’m back on it. All of my other acne treatments weren’t giving me the results that I wanted. I just wasn’t seeing results visually in my skin. I also lost that soft, silky, smooth texture that tret gives my skin. Moisturizing doesn’t give the same effect. It’s the tret that makes the skin look soft and supple! So, during the second week, I had to bump up to a higher strength. Yep, I’m back to where I started, lol. The lower strength of tret just wasn’t cutting it. It helped to reduce the sebum in my skin, but it didn’t help much with acne even though it made my skin peel a little bit. I didn’t see a positive effect in my acne, and I’m pretty much acne-prone. I needed something much stronger to fight against acne and prevent it from appearing. Well, at least diminish them quick. I also noticed more blackheads too when I was on the lower strength. It was just so weird. It wasn’t working for me that’s all.

Now back to what I’m using now, which is the higher strength (0.05). I used it 5 times a week with at least 1-2 rest days in between (or when my skin doesn’t sting or burn). If it burns, I don’t use it. I just listen to my skin to prevent any skin irritations or red skin. That seems to work best for me. Also, I make sure to use heavier moisturizers too when my moisture barrier is trying to heal from tret during rest periods. So after using tret 2 days in a row during the second week, my skin started to get flaky and peel off. I noticed a layer of dead skin sitting on top of my face. I tried not to mess with it and let it peel off by itself. At night, I used RoC Line Smoothing Daily Cleansing Pads to help exfoliate the dead skin off. For some reason, I tried using facial scrubs to remove the dead skin, but I always ended up with dead skin still stuck on my face. The RoC Line Smoothing Daily Cleansing Pads worked like charm! They’re amazing at removing dead skin from the facial skin! Love them! I highly recommended them! They’re pretty awesome!

During this week, every time my skin peeled, I would get some random breakouts. Sometimes blackheads too. Maybe I’m over-moisturizing my skin. It’s like I need moisture, but at the same time, I have to see if I’m over-moisturizing to prevent my skin from breaking out. I really need to re-evaluate my moisturizing routine. I started off using very little products when I first started my tret journey. Next thing ya know it, I’m using a bunch of products! I don’t think I need that many products anymore, and I’m thinking about cutting down on my skin care products. Not just because of the risk of over-moisturizing my skin but also time constraints. I simply don’t have the time to apply that many products on my face anymore. It’s just too time consuming. I have other obligations and responsibilities to take care of. Also, I don’t want to have to bring that many products with me when traveling either. It’s just way too much! hah!

So! I feel like I’m in a complete never-ending cycle with tret. It works then it doesn’t work. I’m trying to make it work, since I love the way it makes my skin look. It actually does help with my acne. I can see the difference in my skin when I was without it. My skin looks great so far with it. Everything seems to be going well. I’m not even a month into re-starting tret, so I have hope that it may work this time around! Stay tuned for my next update! So far, so good! πŸ™‚

So I stopped using tret for a week. I really thought I was done with it, but I guess not. lol. After taking a break from tret for a week, my skin went back to normal. My skin healed. My moisture barrier healed. My skin stopped burning and peeling. It stopped looking aged and just plain bad. After my skin healed, I decided to pick up on tret again. I know, I know, I’m really not giving up on tret just yet. I have to (must) try it again to see if it works, haha! This time, I’m not using it every single day. I’m only using it a few times a week. Also, I was bumped down to the lowest percentage of tret. Maybe the higher strength was just too much for my skin to handle. I don’t know, but let’s see what happens with this new treatment plan!

So what happened??? Here are my results for the first week!

I’m just about to finish up my first week on tret! This week, once I started using tret again, the results have been spectacular! I noticed a difference in the texture of my skin after using it twice. Seems like I’m going for 2-3 times a week only. We’ll see what works best for my skin. But, my skin looked so much softer and smoother all of a sudden after reintroducing tret back into my skin care routine. It also helped tame my oily skin too, which in turn helped to prevent some breakouts from occurring. What I really liked and noticed the most was the change in my skin texture and overall complexion. It made my skin look more youthful and glowy! It was such a dramatic difference so soon. It’s unbelievable. It looks like it’s working for me (once again, hehe!!)! πŸ™ŒπŸ»

The first week of using tret is ending soon, and I’m going to take a break from tret for the rest of the week. I’ll start back up when my skin is ready again. I’m going to take it slow this time around. I mean, my skin peeled after using it twice. I don’t think it’s necessary to use it often and end up with red, irritated skin. Currently, I have a few pimples that aren’t too noticeable. I can just apply some concealer or foundation to cover them up. I think my skin looks pretty good with what’s going on and what I’m doing. It looks way healthier than before! I’m really happy with the results so far! Even though it’s only been a week. Well! That’s my 1 week update on tret. Don’t forget to check out my recent update on my moisturizers that I’m using to prevent my skin from drying out & my previous posts on tret! πŸ™‚
