    My quick personal story with retin-a. Started treatment July 2nd 2014, noticble improvement August 1st. I was prescribed tretinoin cream .05 + clindamyacin. I was to apply clindamyacin just the morning, then before bed apply Tretinoin. This worked FAST to clear up acne but I was left with unsightly "red" face. I was "over" medicating and transitiond to tretinoin only + spot treat clindamyacin as needed. Now for application, apply pea sized amount to cover entire face, after 1-2 mos the face will become "used" to the prescription. At this time I recomend spot treating stubborn areas after initial application, wait 20 mins then go to sleep. the Impact made by these two medications is unmeasurable. Remedy after remedy failed on me, I would try almost anything. Now I. A different person with clear skin

    Ok here are the products to use:
    wash: Cetephil gentle skin cleanser (not the face cleanser) there are two different kinds
    Sunscreen/lotion: Aveeno protect + hydrate 50spf for face
    Medication: clindamycin (only spot treat)

    Wash: Cetephil gentle skin cleanser
    Medication: tretinoin cream (pea sized amount) after 1-2 mos (spot treat) only at night

    Oh and no more scrubs, or dove crap soap. Not needed and anything that "bubbles" is horrible for the face.

    Xoxo have fun!

    Try cutting dairy out, every time I eat a half gallon of ice cream I break out, ( I know it's not healthy to eat a half gallon ) also get the aha+ fast. Are u on the regimen? When in doubt use more bp like a thick fingers length, and always 2 pumps of moisturizer, don't skimp and be gentle. You'll be fine Ps mix half aha+ and half moisturizer ASAP every night
