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!
