  1. ok so i have mild to moderate acne...i occasionally get cysts near my time of the month. i was put on retin a about a month ago, i havent had much of a difference in breakouts, but i have had a lot of dryness and flaking. it sucks cause i have been trying to use mineral makeup to not clog my pores, but when i apply it i look all flaky and gross! so i have been wanting to exfoliate, but i dont know if i should be... i also wanted to know if it is ok to use a mask once in a while. oh and my frie
