[QUOTE=xghostsniperx]I've tried the .1% before. It worked well, until my face got SO red and SO raw. I took Clyndamiacin with it.

Now I've still been taking my Clyndamiacin, but I stopped Retin-A micro. I've heard of some people using it every other night. Maybe I should try it...

I just love my skin right now. I naturally have oily skin and I use soap to wash it 2x a day. I really don't even mind having it so oily. Unfortunately, I break out a heck of a lot more. But, once I start the Retin-A micro, it's like auto-dry and auto-peel. I also have moderate acne on my chest, but I've never tried it there. Is it safe?

So I was thinking of trying it once every other night, along with a new cleanser (I'd like a suggestion on this). I think I'll use it every night on my chest.

Can you guys suggest a new cleanser and for anyone who's used Retin-A micro--how long it took you to clear?[/QUOTE]

Hi there,

Retin-A and Retin-A Mirco should not make your skin raw, red, or dry. If this is happening to your skin then you are using a formulation that is too strong. You need to be prescribed a less potent formulation. Talk to your derm about this. This is what happens with a lot of people and they give up on Retin-A and/or Retin-A Micro. Retin-A and Retin-A Micro can produce fabulous results , but they must be used in a very specific manner. If not you will end up with skin that is never allowed to achieve its beautiful potential. Check out my posts on the the thread titled "Antibiotics and other questions". I give personally tested advice on how to use Retin-A correctly.
