Hey my name is Caleb and I just turned 18. I never really had any acne except a couple pimples here and there, but about 6 months ago I got mild acne and have no idea why. Well 2 moths ago I was prescribed retin - a .025% and my acne is gone but I have these gross red spots on my face.

Right now for my face I use: doterra clearskin foaming fash wash, doterra clearskin topical blend, witch hazel for toner, L'Oréal spf 25 dry skin moisturizer, vitamin E capsules, and my retin-a, and lately I've been using lancome Paris dual finish powder foundation to cover up these red marks cause I won't go outside without it.

I really hate wearing make up...

Is there anything I can do to get rid of these red spots? Will they ever go away?

They'll go away eventually. It takes a while, but they'll fade away. I really like mixing raw honey with tumeric and applying that as a mask for 20 minutes. I feel like it speeds the process up. Also, make sure you wear sunscreen. Sun can make hyperpigmentation worse.
