Well hello there! Welcome to the My Almost Midlife Crisis, I’m your host Jennifer Mathis. Today is our first Side Note. What is a side note? So right now I’m planning on doing a full episode once per month. But there’s a lot to talk about around each of those topics because they’re broad topics. In between the full episodes, I’ll be releasing side notes which are shorter five to ten minute conversations each Monday.

In today’s side note, we’ll be talking about The Purge. I’m not referring to the movie The Purge, which was terrifying! Retinol has a ton of perks like reducing or even eliminating adult acne or zits. It also helps prevent fine lines and wrinkles. Now that all sounds great. I’m sure when I said that you were like “Oh, reducing fine lines and wrinkles? I no longer have zits? Sign me up!”

I do feel like it helped and I would advocate for it but the piece we’re going to talk about today is not the benefits. It’s the downside and what they call The Retinol Purge. It’s just as terrifying as the movie, except it’s on your face.

When my dermatologist prescribed Retinol for me, they always go through things to watch out for, potential side effects and I will say sometimes the side effects make you not even want to take a prescription drug cuz you’re like maybe I’ll sleep better but I may die in the process so maybe I shouldn’t take it.

That’s why I love those prescription TV commercials cuz they go through “oh this is wonderful and it will solve all your problems but hey, fine print – you’ll get a heart attack, blood clots, death and potential suicide.” It’s like, um, maybe I’ll just live with the current condition I have. It’s not as drastic. You aren’t going to die from using Retinol. Your skin purging out anything that’s in there for an entire four to six to maybe eight weeks at the most.

So, what that means is when you start using it, your skin looks horrendous. There are black heads, white-heads and zits. You start questioning all of your previous skincare choices up until that point. So, you look like an acned-14-year-old kid for almost eight weeks. No makeup will cover it up. You’re just going to have to walk around in public looking like your worst nightmare as a teenager.

Once you get through that though, it’s amazing. But you just have to suck it up. We’re the suck it up generation. Our parents would be like “Suck it up!” all the time. If anything’s wrong. You fall down? “You’re not hurt, suck it up.” Or maybe that was just my parents.

And then you get out of that and you’re good! I mean I barely even get pre-period zits anymore. Maybe one or two.

Net/Net, Retinol Pro: I recommend using it. It does a great job. Con: You gotta suck it up and you just have to get through the purge. It will be ok, I promise, on the other end.

So that was our first side note. Hopefully you enjoyed it. A little snackable treat, a little laugh I could give you on a Monday morning.

If you haven’t listening to episode one yet, I would encourage you to go back and listen to episode one for more context around anti-aging, Botox, Retinol, skin regimens and grey hair. I’m very excited to announce the podcast is now available on most platforms from Apple to Google to Spotify and some I’ve never heard of. I encourage you to listen and share with your friends that you think would enjoy as well and of course don’t forget to follow and review.

You can also find me on Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr and Twitter. I hope to hear from you soon. Until next week!

“Potrei persino contenere

in me le stelle; tanto grande

sembra il mio cuore, e come

vorrebbe restituire libertà
