Hi.

Retin-A...The Fountain of Youth

Retin-A...The Fountain of Youth

Retin A Cream

I have discovered the fountain of youth...Retin-A! Actually, my doctor found it simply prescribed me a tiny tube of this amazing little elixir. I'd like to think of myself as a natural, no chemicals kind of person, but natural doesn't always yield the best results. I was afraid of the side effects of this cream and was unsure about results, but I tried it anyway.  I've posted some pictures below of the before and after, spanning about 2 weeks. 

Pros:

  • Fountain of Youth Bringeth Oner

  • Quick Results (a few days, really)

  • Ease of use

  • Relatively inexpensive (with insurance)

Cons:

  • Literally takes off a layer of skin

  • Skin burns with moisture, sweat, sun

  • Increased sensitivity

  • Causes skin to peel

My goal in using this cream was (and is) to ultimately improve the look of my skin. I began to feel like I was aging quickly.  Especially considering my lack of sleep.  Children are DRAINING!!! What happened to that person I used to be (before kids)? She's out there...somewhere...probably at the Fountain of Youth.
