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?


It's a rocky road but like everything else in life, there is always a beginning and an end.  Here's to finding my end.

 

God is good to me..........more than I deserve.

 

James 1:2-4

Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.

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.
