Woman Shares Before And After Transformation Of Skin And Reveals The Regime That Got Rid Of Acne

So it’s no surprise that one woman has been hailed for revealing exactly how she got rid of her cystic acne, detailing her entire skin routine on Reddit.

In a post entitled “Hard work and retinol really make a difference”, user Egotr4p shared a side-by-side image of herself before and after starting her intense regimen.

She explained that while she didn’t see a dermatologist, she used tretinoin .025 per cent — a prescription-strength retinoid.

This particular product is only available via prescription, but you can get lower strength retinols over-the-counter.

However, retinol isn’t the only part of her routine.

In the comments section of her post, Egotr4p revealed that she relies on a six-step system in the morning and seven steps at night.

Her full routine:


Ponds Cucumber Cleanser

Hada Labo Whitening Toner

Peter Thomas Roth Vitamin C Serum

The Ordinary Niacinimide


Biore UV watery gel


Micellar water

Ponds Cucumber Cleanser

CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser

Hada Labo Whitening Toner

Tretnoin 0.025%

Mario Badescu Peptide Renewal

She uses products including cleanser, toner, Micellar water and vitamin C serum, and has also gone vegan.

She wrote: “I don’t think [retinol] was the only thing that really helped me, although definitely a part of it all.

“Going vegan has improved the texture of my skin and frequency of pimples appearing as well as the other actives in my routine.”

She said she had cystic acne for “a year or two” before starting her routine, and that she started to see results within two months.

The transformation took two years in total.

Claiming that she “doesn’t ever break out anymore”, she said she gets only “one pimple every two months”.

In a message to others, the young woman added: “There is hope.”
