today marks 1 week of using retin-a every night, and 3 weeks since i first started using it. sometimes i think my skin already looks much better, and other times i think it looks about the same. right now i have a small pimple on my chin, and one on my jawline...i think this comes from the spiro (which by the way has really messed with my period). overall i think my skin looks okay, but it is still somewhat oily with lots of clogged pores on the forehead. i'm still getting a few flakes around my mouth, but it's not noticeable unless you're looking realllllly closely. i think my forehead will be how i eventually decide whether the retin-a is working or not. at the very least, my skin isn't worse than it was on the atralin, which is good! i'm going to give retin-a the full 12 weeks, and if i don't see results i guess i'll bump up to the .1%. i'm hoping that it won't take as long to see full results since i'm switching from another retinoid...
