Re: Tonight I graduated to 05%

LOL, I know it sounds like I want to peel and get red.  I really don't, but, I just read SO MUCH about the side effects and how I'll want to stop but don't.  When nothing happened, my mind said, it's not doing anything.  So today, when I pull up to PT, I checked my lipstick in the mirror and what do I see?  My skin was shedding!  I looked like a snake shedding its skin.  It was a very light layer and when I started brushing it off, the AC was blowing it off my face.  That's how thin it was.  No redness.  I would have died if I had walked into PT with my face shedding Smiley Surprised  That was two days of the stronger percentage and using moisturizer on top.

Moral of the story, careful what you wish for.

This is what I kept expecting to have with the first tube of .025%

Two days of .050% and I'm shedding a super thin layer of skin but no redness or irritation...yet.  It's a good thing this is the time of year I hibernate.

Why do I want to put tretinoin on my nose?

To reduce enlarged pores.

Re: Tonight I graduated to 05%

I don't have visible pores.  So if that's all tret does for one's nose, I could not apply it there?  My nose was red last night.
