Just a quick post this afternoon to share some exciting news with you and tell you about the upcoming Zombie Revolution!

As I mentioned on my blog earlier, I was in Leeds last week making over a few creepy zombies ready for a campaign by Halifax-based fancy dress company, Fancy Dress Ball. My zombie creations staggered off into Leeds and today they’ve appeared in the Yorkshire Evening Post!

Dealing with adult Acne: My Tretinoin treatment update

Just recently, a lot of people have been asking me how my skin looks under my makeup after using Tretinoin since mid July. I wanted to share my progress images with you and let you know how I’ve found the Retin-A treatment so far.

When I first started using the treatment gel, my skin looked extremely irritable and was prone to severe breakouts. I started using Tretinoin as a last option after nothing else worked for me – you can read about my experience from days one to five in my Retin-A for Problem Skin post here.

Tretinoin update

As you can see from the images above, my skin has vastly improved since I started using Tretinoin although I still do get the occasional breakout. I’ve found that my skin is still getting used to the treatment and every ten or so days, my skin will once again start to peel in certain places and appear flaky for a few days. I’ve found that Elizabeth Arden’s Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant is an absolutely amazing moisturiser for these times and really helps to heal the skin once again.

My skin seems to be slowly improving week by week, but it’s still not quite as clear as I’d ultimately like it to be but these things take time and it’s better to use strong treatments such as these sparingly and sensibly to prevent damage or the dreaded flaking!

I’d really recommend the treatment to anybody who is suffering from acne or fine lines and wrinkles, it’s really worked quite amazingly for me and it will hopefully continue to do so and continue to give me my skin confidence back.

Have you tried Tretinoin? How have you found the treatment?

Great progress! Are you still using this product?

Hi Ashley! I’ve since been switched to Erythromycin and Duac cream! Still battling away I’m afraid! xoxo

Aw! You had great and fast results!

I’m on wk 5 and I feel like my skin is the same along with sideside effects haha

I was given a topical antibiotic but opted not to use it bc the pamphlet said not to use if you don’t respond well to antibiotics (even though it’s topical) and for me I don’t.
