I have had moderate acne for that last 5 years (blackhead, whiteheads, and bumps). About 1 year ago
all antibotics stopped working to clear my skin. I decided to go on Accutane, but at the last minute backed-out
because I was afraid of the side effects. I then decided to try differn gel FAITHFULLY. I had used it and Retin-A
and differn gel in the past but would skip dosages occassionally (1 to 2 times a week). I thought that it wouldn't make a difference
but it did. This time around I have used it everynight without skipping. Today is week six and my face
is perfect. I noticed it clearing at week five. The first four weeks were pure hell! My acne went from
moderate to severe. My fact literally was peeling off and itched constantly. The drying went away and week\
four and so did the itching.
The reason I am writing this is to let you guys know that if you are on differn or retin-A use it EVERYDAY.
Don't skip a night if you are to tired to wash or face put it on. Put it on even when your face is so dry that
it hurts to touch it. I made the mistake of skipping doses for years and I could have had clear skin along time ago.
