Re: Retin - A 0.01%
Oct 12, 2004
Thanks for your good wishes!!

Well my skin type is oily... I use those oil absorber sheets at least once a day usually in the afternoon.

My type of acne is not close to mild but had always been on one cheek... at some points the right one at some points the left one. Right now it is concentrated in the right one... and some in the chin but very very few.

I have tried many things out there... Birth Control/ Pro activ/ over the counter and nothing has worked like the Retin A... so I really wish you the best with it too.

In regards to the initial it wasn't sooo bad... I did get a few whiteheads here and there but they would dry up very quickly!! Like I said what was most noticeable was how my skin dried up and started peeling. As I girl I am lucky I can use makeup, but the peeling shows more with makeup so to me it was a bit of a problem. Thank God it has stopped peeling now.

So if anything you can ask me anytime. I wish you all the best and can only dream of the day that acne is a thing of the past!!
