Retin A alone will help hyperpigmentation and blackheads. You should NOT start them both at the same time. Use the Retin A by itself for at least three months and THEN see if you need to add in another product.

Please read the following post on how topical retinoids work and why patience and perseverance is required when using topical retinoids: http://www.acne.org/messageboard/Info-reti...ial-t98395.html Please also realize that at least three months on the medication is required for noticing full benefit. You may experience an 'initial breakout' (explained in previous link) that's due to the purging effect of retinoids.

I recommend that you do not use AHA while on Retin-a...I did that and my skin had to pay for it....it dried and irritated my skin badly..and i ended up with more acne as a result.
