Retin A for scars



Ive been doing a lot better on the acne front recently.... Im rarely getting cystic spots, when I do its usually around my period.

I think the Saw Palmetto has been very good for me. And I have also been using Progesterone cream (a natural paraben free cream by emerita) which I really like and deffinately helps keeps the spots to a minimum.

Of course once the spots subside im still not happy as I have red/purple scars left over. I know these will fade in time but given some that I had from January have only just gone completely Im feeling quite impatient!

I found an unopened tube of retin A id been given by my doctor last year and didnt use, so i have decided to give it a whirl. Just once a day rather than twice as I dont want to make my skin too sensitive.

Ive got a good day moisturiser with SPF 25 which Ill wear in the day and then apply the Retin A at night time.

Hopefully with some success :)
