  1. I'll only be using it on my forehead, by the way.
  2. I was recommended Retin-A last year for my enlarged pores. It worked, but I used Retin-A improperly, damaging my skin. I've been using AHA ever since with moderate results. My skin looks better than it did after it was damaged with Retin-A, but it still looks worse than it did before I had enlarged pores. I visited my dermatologist last week, and she gave me a different AHA product to use and Retin-A Gold. I'm scared to use Retin-A again, but I feel like it could potentially solve my problem. Wh
  3. It's made my skin very oily as well. I've tried several things, and nothing has helped. I can only recommend matte products.
  4. I've been using AHA Lotion since January with mixed results. It has improved the overall condition of my skin, after it was left damaged from Retin-A. For a while, I would get one or two deep acne bumps per week, but even those have mostly gone away. Now, the only problem is that I have a bunch of clogged pores. It leaves my skin looking uneven and bumpy. If I keep using AHA, will they eventually unclog? Or will going off AHA eventually unclog them? Is there something else I can do? I've been

  6. Another question, will my skin change when I do eventually quit using it? Because, currently, my skin looks really shiny and oily. But, before I used Retin-A and AHA, I never had any problems with shininess or oiliness.
  7. I've never had serious acne, but do to my own poor skin care (I picked at my face too much) I ended up making several of my pores gigantic. So, my dermatologist recommended Retin-A. It worked, but it completely dried my skin out. I quit using it several months ago. To regain all of the moisture I lost in my forehead and to get rid of the large patch of leathery, rough skin that developed, I started using Neutrogena Healthy Skin Face Lotion, with SPF, Alpha Hydroxy. It has worked quite well. Aft
  8. Well, I did quit using acne products. Really, all I do now is wash my face and moisturize. I never want to use anything prescription again.
  9. I suppose I'll start from the beginning. I used to have nearly flawless skin. Sure, I got the occasional pimple like every other teen, but other than that, I was perfect. My skin wasn't oily, my pores weren't noticeable, and the texture was great. But, for some reason, I started picking at my face. A lot. I ended up making a few of the pores on my face gigantic. I was disgusted with my new face, so, I went to a skin doctor. She recommended Retin-A Micro. I used it exclusively on my forehead, wh
