I have recently started using Retin-A 0.1% cream every other night, BP 2.5% on the mornings of the night I didn't use the Retin-A, also toner of witch hazel every morning, along with a good aloe moisturizer from Mario Badescu. My acne has cleared from my forehead and cheeks, but I've started to have the initial breakout on my neck area, along my jaw line. Tons of big red irritating bumps, that are painful! I hate this phase of medication. My face is dry and tight feeling, but I guess its better then oily and gross feeling. I live in a very dry, cold climate also...which does not ever seem to help matters for acne clearing well. The summer time always seems to help, but we only get to see the sun a few months out of the year. I hope this regimen works well, and works for a good period of time. I used benzaclin and retin-a in the past along with taking doxycycline for a very long time, but it seemed that after awhile things just got worse and the acne just kept spreading. I have restarted this regimen, and hope that it works this time!
