  2. okay so the past 2-3 days my skin has been super flaky! my skin is normally very oily so this is quite a shock i think it started when i applied too much retin-a one night and in the morning it was flaky but past 2 days i have not used medication - just cetaphil gentle cleanser and olay complete sensive skin moisturizer can anyone recommend ways to get rid of the flakiness? should i exfoliate? i will try to take a short not hot shower tonight can anyone recommend a good nighttime m
  3. ive been on .025% for a few months with 1 tube left and thinking of swtiching to .05% once that tube is out (1 month maybe) any1 here see significant cahnges between the 2? in terms of effectiveness and also side effects the only side effects i see with .025% is some flaking after showers, which im okay with.
  4. be patient , may take 2-3months to see results
  5. unfortunately dark bornw spots just seem forever to fade, ive tried AHA, BHA, mechanical exfoliatiants and now retin-a but brown spots still last quite a long time >< do u use spf?
  6. hey great thread do u know if its ok to pair clindamycin + retin-a at night? reason i ask is the clin gel makes my face shiny so i prefer not to use it in the morning
  7. hi all so my doctor just prescirbed me clindamycin along with my retin-a i been using for a few months. years ago, i used both erthomycin and retin-a at the same time at night (ertho first then retin-a) just wondering if its ok to use both at night?

  9. mine look almost identical to that, those are sebaceous nothing comes out when u squeese ur nose rite? they just get a bit larger and kinda grow like hairs i cant get rid of em no matter what
  10. ive been using AHA for 1 year + and havent noticed big diff on pore size/sebaceous so now im switching to BHA LOL, opposite of u
