help me!! the purge is taking over :(

I’ve just been off accutane after 9 months and my skin looked good but there were still breakouts. So my dermatologist put me on trifarotene, form of tretinoin and BOY I CAN’T SEE THE LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL! Like my skin is definitely purging and even if I want to turn back now, I DONT KNOW HOW! Like seriously, am struggling! Any tips or help would be so appreciated!!

thank you so so much for the encouragement! haha you could definitely pick up my panic through my SOS above HAHHA! But also do you know how long the purge lasts? I’m literally on week one too which makes it even more discouraging 😥😥

i used to be on tretinoin cure, but i dont remember whether my skin had breakouts but they did dry tf outta my skin so hydrate it with moisturizer at least. and take pills with food high in fat. GL, u got this :)

I had also suffered from that. The best thing is not to touch your face and try to use gentel products and fewer the skincare steps. 💕

my skin was purged once and I really left all my skincare routine behind. not wearing anything but Senka facial foam helps me a lot!
