Things have been looking a lot better, I have been flaking less, and there is a lot less active acne (I only see one so far and a couple of blackheads). Though there is still hyper pigmentation that has not yet gone away. I realized from the start that I had some open pores, and comparing now and then, there seems to be no difference, my open pores are still very visible. I still have blackheads on my nose, but that is because I have applied Tretinoin on there, I don't know if I am suppose to or not (so can some please tell me if it is alright to apply tretinoin on my nose?) . But besides that things have been looking pretty well so far.
