My Clear Skin Journey: Week 3 Results

Leave a comment

Here are my week 3 results!

Day 15: It’s a start of a new week! My skin feels very hydrated and looks VERY oily. I stopped using iUnik Propolis Vitamin Synergy Serum. A full review on this serum coming up soon! πŸ™‚ Sooo I did notice some breakouts from it. Not sure if it’s from the serum or my skin is too hydrated. Remember, I still have oily skin even though it gets dry from acne treatments. πŸ˜• We’ll see in a couple of days what happens to my skin. So, tonight, I am not using any moisturizers because my skin is rejecting excess moisture. It doesn’t feel that dry at all after 2 weeks being on Taz. I’m going to apply only Taz + my eye creams until my skin feels dry. I’ll continue to moisturize in the morning only.

Day 16: My skin is slowly going back to normal after stopping iUnik Propolis Synergy Serum. I guess it’s not the serum for me. I’ll keep using Taz alone until my skin feels dry. It just doesn’t feel dry anymore. Weird. I’m not going to add moisturizers on top when I don’t need it. It just makes the situation worse. I will continue on using moisturizers only in the morning. This just makes my night routine simple. πŸ™‚

P.S. I don’t feel like putting on makeup today. πŸ˜‹

Day 17: I’m reevaluating my skin care routine. I’m only using two essences and two moisturizing serums besides vitamin c and antioxidants (more on them when I have the chance).

The two essences I’m using are…

I’m thinking about eliminating the Cosrx Snail Mucin. I don’t feel that it’s making much of a difference. The results are pretty much the same using Benton Fermentation Essence.

For serums…

I’m using The Ordinary 100% Plant-Derived Squalane and The Ordinary Amino Acids + B5. I decided to drop the squalane oil. It’s not something I really need, and I haven’t seen a huge difference in my skin with it in my routine. I like the Amino Acids + B5 a little more.

Honestly, using less products has helped decrease acne. Layering on a ton of products could’ve contributed to clogged pores too. I just know that my skin is clearing up when I use less products. I find that Taz is more effective when I use it alone at night too.

Day 18: My skin looks clearer today even though I notice some new breakouts. The overall quality of my skin is improving. With less moisturizers, my skin does feel a little more dry but not too much. BUT, it looks so much better — less clogged and bumpy. My skin looks CLEARER. Let’s see what happens tomorrow!!

Day 19: I started using my moisturizers at night again. My skin started to feel dry from Taz but not itchy. My skin is still flaking off every day. My skin wants moisture, so that’s what I’m going to give it. I decided to add a previous product that I took out of my routine. I was waiting for a good time to add it back in. It’s the The INKEY List Niacinamide Oil Control Serum. Let’s see how this goes…

Day 20: I used The INKEY List Niacinamide Oil Control Serum in the morning and at night. The first day went OK. I didn’t get any breakouts from it that’s all. The next day, I noticed a huge, bad breakout! I stopped using the Niacinamide Serum immediately. Read my full review here: The INKEY List Niacinamide Oil Control Serum

I’m not going to add anything new anytime soon. πŸ˜’

Day 21: Finishing up week 3 & this is what I’m going to do…

P.S. My skin improved after I stopped using the The INKEY List Niacinamide Serum. Some products just don’t work on some people. It’s not for everyone (as the company claims!!)

Now let’s move on to WEEK 4!!

Day 8: I experienced some breakouts today. It wasn’t a bad breakout. Just some clogged pores moving up to the surface. But, wow, it’s working! πŸ˜€ I’m very happy what Taz has done to my skin that Tret didn’t do. As I said in WEEK 1, I will not add Tret in any time soon. Maybe in a couple of months when my skin is clear. Yeah, I’m hoping that my skin will clear up in a few months or so. It looks really nice right now. It’s soft and smooth meanwhile the clogged pores are popping up and vanishing. We’ll see what the future holds! πŸ˜€

Day 9: Wow, I’m so excited that my skin is clearing up! I can feel that my skin is more sensitive, but it’s not dry and itchy. I’m not using a lot of moisturizers either. Just enough. I feel that that’s more than enough moisture for my skin. So far, everything is working as planned. πŸ™‚

Day 10: My skin flaked today. Felt a little dry by the end of the night. Still, it’s not the same type of dryness as when I was on Tret. This acne treatment is going much better than I would’ve thought! I’m getting pimples in random places, but mainly my breakout-prone areas. They are vanishing the next day or couple of days though. My goal right now is to quit picking when there’s a patch of dry skin. They’re so annoying. They hang off of my face. πŸ˜‘

Day 11: I noticed a couple of more breakouts. Tiny ones on my cheeks. They’re not too bothersome. I left them alone and went about my day. Skin flaked off tonight. πŸ™‚ I’m shedding almost every single day so far. Very happy about that! I hope it keeps going like this because I’m seeing small improvements every day.

Day 12: My skin felt less dry today. Maybe my skin is getting used to the treatment. I’m still using my essences and serums to lightly moisturize my skin. It’s working. The products aren’t too heavy and hasn’t clogged my pore yet. Looking forward to results tomorrow!!

Day 13: I’m dealing with a few new pimples here and there. Once again, they don’t bother me too much. I can easily conceal them with a makeup concealer, and it works! Skin isn’t too dry anymore. Tonight, I added a new serum to help hydrate my skin (lightly). It’s called iUnik Propolis Vitamin Synergy Serum. Hope it works and doesn’t break me out!

Day 14: My skin is getting less dry by the day. I’m not sure if it’s because I’m getting used to the treatment or is it because of my moisturizers? My skin is still peeling, and I’m still getting random breakouts. The breakouts definitely increased, decreased, then increased. *sigh* One day my skin looks really good, the next it looks… 😢

Let’s move on to the next week! Week 2 is officially over!
