I have started using Retin-A Micro (Gel) for about two weeks now and I have been seeing improvement in my acne and my hyperpigmentation. The downsides are that my face is pink, and maybe even red when I sweat while working out. My skin was super dry in the first week, but it has gotten better as of late. I have some questions I would like answered if anyone can help, so I know what to expect from this product.

1. What is the difference between Retin-A and Retin-A Micro? Is the gel form really that much better than the cream?

2. How long was your initial breakout? Mine seems like it's dying down but I'm not discounting the fact that I have more pimples to deal with.

3. Is there any way to suppress the redness (and the itching!)? My face gets super itchy when I run or workout!

4. What moisturizers worked effectively for you? I work outside so I need a SPF/Moisturizing combo, any help?

If someone could give me their insight I would greatly appreciate it!
