I'm really sorry. It's been a while since I checked my account here. I was really busy with school. Anyway, my skin is already used to tretinoin. My face doesn't turn red or flake like before when I was using it for the first 5 months. I've been using it for more than a year now. But I think it's not working on me anymore. I guess it still does, but not like before. I started to get zits again, not as many and as big as before though. Anyone here who has been using retin-a for more than a year? Should I try another brand? What brand would you guys suggest. THANKS IN ADVANCE... =D

Try moving up to a hire percentage so if you were using.25% move up to .05% or.01?

sad to say im already using .1%. I went back to my derm and she told me to use 5% BP every morning and retin-a at night. I just hope it wouldn't get worse, I will never be able to handle it if my face breaks out like before.
