Hello. I'm a 20 year old girl. I never had acne problems before. It suddenly started 2 years back. Now, my face is full of them and it never seems to go. My family doctor prescribed me retin-a and I have been using it religiously every night since the last 8 months but it doesn't work for me. I have a combination skin, but it tends to get dry in winters. Also, I have no digestion problems. It would be really helpful of you if you can advice me with what to do, my skin looks horrible.
