I have been on Retin-A 0.1% for almost a year now. For the most part I've been very happy with it... but, I guess I'm feeling frustrated. about two months back i was getting foundation matched at the counter and the lady used what seemed like an alcohol makeup remover... or something along those lines. Anyways it gave me a chemical burn for a good week and I suffered from rashes all down my chest. So I kinda had to taper off the Retin-A to every other day so my face wouldn't hurt so bad and be SO red. Also about two months ago I started taking a Zinc supplement. For the first month 30mg a day for the second 50 mg a day. My breakouts have increased and my skin scars so easy. I wonder if anyone has had experience with a Zinc supplement? Or really any comments? I'm just feeling really tired of fighting this acne. The first image of my face is the side that rarely breaks out... It is almost always the other side. I don't get it. I change my pillow cases and everything. Also if someone would recommend an herbal supplement that would be nice too. I think i'm willing to give that a go because I haven't tried that yet.
Oh also check out my page for other photos of my skin's progress.
