Retin-A for me isn't going well right now...

Recommended Posts

I used to have mild acne, blackheads on my cheeks and nose and a few zits here and there, and some brown spots. Now it's worse. My cheeks are pretty red. My blackheads haven't seemed to change at all.

For people who have taken Retin-A and worked for you, did this start too?

You are suffering from the initial break out that retin-a usually causes the first month or so.. I've used the stuff for 3 months now. My acne is under control, but the red marks have stayed with me. pretty annoying, but at least I don't have the swiss alps on my skin anymore :S

Don't stop using it.. keep using it for at least 4+ weeks more.

Retin-A usually helps me clear the red marks, but i've been using it for about 7 months. It was a long time ago, but yea i did get breakout/redness when i first used it. Once that went away i really liked the stuff.
