Week 3 of Retin A - Overall appearance of acne scars are minimizing, still experience peeling and dryness

I am a 20-year-old, female and I have tried about everything in the book to treat my skin for acne and acne scars. I came across Retin A 0.05% when my boyfriends mom told me about this product and I have started using it about two weeks ago.

I have read a lot of reviews about this product and have heard a lot of good things about it. Within the 1st month of using this product, I experienced severe peeling and my face was so sore that I could barely move it. I continued using Retin A and now my face is peeling a lot less than it did initially. I am using Retin A with Cetaphil face wash for combination and acne prone skin, aswell as Solal Technologies Acne-Clear pills. I wash my face twice a day and apply a moisturizer during the day and take the pills two times a day (after breakfast and dinner).

I have seen results so far throughout my red face. My blackheads and whiteheads are fading on my nose and around my mouth and my skin looks a lot tighter...

As I have progressed using Retin A I can see greatresults. I am currently on week 3, my white and black heads around my face (nose, mouth and forehead) are completely gone. I still get pimples and still experience peeling and redness in my face especially around my mouth, but it has definately calmed down a lot. The acne scars on my face are fading fast and I can see significant progress as seen in my pictures. I took the first picture that I posted about three weeks ago, and look at my face now. I am still using my Acne Clear tablets, wash my face twice a day, drink lots of water, excercise regularly and eat healthy. No more chocolates for me... lets see what week 4 has in store for me :) !!!
