How Retin-A Worked Its Magic On My Skin
I started my University stint this year. The practical move for me was to look for a place near campus, which I did early on. Life was on the fast lane after the first few days of the first semester. My skin started to look terrible and gone were the days when I received compliments about my skin one after the other. I’ve always had chronically congested pores on my cheeks and nose, but nothing like the cystic acne I was getting now. I went to the local doctor and she wrote me a script for doxycycline 100mg once a day, clindamycin gel, and 0.025 tretinoin to use every night.
The three subscriptions cost me a fortune. It was around 400 bucks for the three items. Good thing I had insurance to cover me that was kind enough to pay for my medical needs. In total, I only had to pay 10 bucks a pop. For those who don’t have insurance, I suggest those Indian generic drugs that are relatively cheaper than the branded products.
I began treatment shortly before my second semester when I started writing my stressful paper about the false Queen Vegas Casino scam accusations. My acne has gotten worse sin then, less deep acne, but now I have small bumps all over my face. On my forehead, cheeks, nose, you name it! It’s immensely frustrating, because not only do I have acne and scarring all over my face but bumps in no man’s land.
Anyway, to keep things short, the Retin-A cream that I was recommended worked wonders. Despite all the acne challenges I was going through, Retin-A worked its magic after a few weeks and I started to see results. I did a few more things that would complement the facial product, including cutting down on sugar and dairy. Ultimately, I couldn’t be happier that I came across Retin-A.
