Hi, annemoore29.

I am a male. I used Retin-A about five years ago. Retin-A works by pushing your acne up, from below the surface of your skin, to the surface of your skin. Then, Retin-A somehow gets rid of your acne.

By working in this way, Retin-A actually makes your acne worse for a certain period of time. This period can be weeks, or even a month or two.

I *hated* the fact that Retin-A made my acne worse. So, I just gave up on Retin-A.
