Re: retin a question for Deedee

Well, I'm pregnant and the first two months I was more clear than I had ever been in my life. Now I'm breaking out again. I can't use the Retin-A anymore because vit. A could be toxic to the baby. So, I'm starting to think that maybe the Smoothbeam was actually working, but because I didn't finish my treatments, it didn't last as long as it should. I don't know - my hormones are probably going crazy right now.

As for the Retin-A - I find that the general rule for acne is that less is more. I always wind up messing my face up because I think that something is working and if I just apply more of it, or use a stronger version that it would work better or faster. The truth is that acne remedies are SO SLOW and if you see any improvement, I would stick with that for a while.
