I started out thinking that I would use a retinoid about 5 times a week and lactic acid twice a week. Well, that changed, I noticed that my skin peeled after the first use of lactic acid. I decided to use it again the next day. And you know what happened? My skin peeled again. I can also feel sebaceous filaments coming out of my pores. I can easily pick them out. Closed comedones moving up to the surface. WOW! And this was after 2 days of using lactic acid. I used lactic acid again the next day. My skin became dry even though my skin doesn’t feel dry or burn when I apply the serum to my skin. So, it looks like I can’t use the same acid three times in a row. Only two times. I will be using a combination of retinoid and lactic acid, but I’ll have to see what combinations work best on my skin.

Also…

I finally introduced BP into my skin care routine! I have had it with stubborn pimples that I started to use BP again. I thought about it so much. In the end, I did it. My skin has been going up and down. I have good days then I’ll have bad days. It’s really getting on my nerves that I have to think this much about my skin. I don’t think retinoids and ahas are going to keep my skin free of acne. They help, but they’re not going to do it all. I used BP once this week at night. Upon application, it was irritating. My skin burned, and it felt pretty gross applying it to my skin. After the BP dried on my skin, my skin felt more comfortable. Oilies vanished. The next morning as I was washing my face, my skin looked really good. I noticed tiny little annoying pimples that were stubborn are smaller in size. It dried out the active pimples. Some skin peeling. Amazing. My skin looks so clean. I’m really happy that I used it. It works. So I’m planning on using BP only 1-2 times a week at night. Let’s see how this goes! I’m feeling optimistic after seeing results after one night!! 👍🏻

So retinoids are great for anti-aging and acne. Well, I have a problem. It’s not working for my acne…fully. I’ve noticed some clogged pores on my cheeks, jawline, and chin. They’re so annoying! Unless…I’m not done with the purging yet. 🤔 I’m still peeling and noticing pimples. It’s on and off with the pimples that it’s so annoying. I can see closed comedones along my jawline. Ew. But, it’s been 3 months. Hmmm. Could be from the dry skin too OR retinoids isn’t a cure all for acne. Who knows. Since I’m not using a retinoid every night (I can’t, too drying), I was debating between adding benzoyl peroxide back in my skin care routne or lactic acid. I was leaning towards benzoyl peroxide because I know it’s effective, but the side effects put me off — prolongs acne scars, makes complexion dull, dries out the skin, makes wrinkles more prominent, etc. I want to focus on getting rid of acne and anti-aging at the same time. Since benzoyl peroxide isn’t going to give me that, lactic acid it is. I don’t know if it’s going to work. I’m just going to have to try it out and see what happens…
