Getting my skin back to normal??


3 posts in this topic

Well I didnt even know this site had an area to talk about these types of things but I figured I've already exhausted every other area of the Internet so why not here!

Just wondering if anyone here ever damaged their skin and was able to fix it and get it back to the place it was before the damage..

I made a horrible mistake and used a very powerful cream (from the retin a family) for no real reason ( Just a few pimples and build up from not washing my face for months (depressed))     And it completely turned my skin upside down.

I had lovely skin before hand, like "poreless" and porcelain.. It was the only thing I really had confidence in appearance wise and I was often complimented on it. :alpacawink:

Now the nicest comment I can receive is "I've seen worse". :alpacadone: 

I didn't know it was capable of doing the exact opposite of what this "miracle cream" claims to. But since  this happened I have found countless horror stories of similar, if not identical experiences with this cream and others like it...and literally 99% of people say they never get their skin back to normal. :alpacasad: 

Thats insane to me. I only used the stuff twice! :alpacamad: 

Anyway...I doubt anyone here will have any answers for me, but if by some miracle you do, please let me know! :alpacashocked: 

 

Thank you in advance!

At this point it's probably best to see a dermatologist instead of trying new products on your own which might irritate your skin even more. Continue to cleanse/moisturize with the products you used before, avoid exfoliating for now, stay hydrated, and use sunscreen every time you go out during the day. 

For future reference it's best to test any new products on your hand to see if your skin reacts badly to it.

Yes and also stick to natural based products. Dr. Organics has a great range of natural creams and they might have one for your situation.
