Am I using the right products?

Hi, I'm 14 years old and I have oily skin. My acne is moderately severe and I mostly get it on my chin.

The products I use are:

Oxy Face Wash Acne Treatment 10% Benzoyl Peroxide

Fougera Clindamycin Phosphate

Tretinoin Gel 0.025%


After my first week of using the Tretinoin, I noticed LOTS of little impurities on my chin and my skin was getting redder. After 3 weeks, it's gotten worse and I stopped using it. But I was convinced to use it again by my mom who also uses it and never has acne.

Am I using the right products for my skin type?

Please read the following threads:



Retinoids are incredibly effective, but they do take time.

The facewash is useless, you're just sending the BP down the drain. Use a simple, gentle cleanser like Cetaphil, CeraVe, etc.

The combination of clindamycin and the retinoid sound great! Stick with it!
