Re: Retin-a
Jul 30, 2005
I was wondering when people say that they had the initial breakout out at the 4th to 7th week or 1-4, is this with using it every night? If I am using it 3 times a week, will this make the breakout period take longer to come and last longer?
I am at week 4 now and got 3 small new pimples, so maybe this is it starting. I used green cream for over 2 months before starting the RAM and already went through a "purging" phase, so I'm hoping it will be milder with the RAM.
I'm doing every third night now, maybe I should up it to every second night? I haven't had any irritation, just some dry skin that pretty much goes away with moisturizer. Any input would be helpful. My skin was really looking nice, and I'm starting to worry about this initial breakout stage. Thanks.
