I owe it all to the huge influx in pimples I’ve recently been so fortunate to endure. Thanks pimples! But only for helping me discover retin-a, other than that, you pretty much suck.
So, I went to the dr and they prescribed me retin-a. It’s been a week and a half and you can really see a difference in the texture of my skin already. Granted I still have pimples, but that’s because retin-a digs deep and gets everything out of your pores then keeps it out. The parts of my skin that aren’t broken out have already smoothed out wonderfully. I feel oogie saying any part of my skin looks like porcelain because I prefer to be self deprecating, but this stuff works dude. P.S. I’ve been prescribed the lowest dose and am still having wonderful results.
Moral of the story, ask your doctor about retin-a next time you visit. (i totally sound like an infomercial for YAZ “ask your doctor about Yaz!”)
Oddly enough this breakout was prompted by my discontinuing birth control. Maybe that’s too much information, but I feel it’s important you know my break outs were only gone for as long as they were due to Yasmin. Once I decided to get off the stuff my pimples came back. Yuck. I’ll write more about my decision to stop taking all oral medication later, or maybe I won’t…
