Will Retin-A 0.025% work for acne? I can tolerate this concentration well, but have a very hard time adjusting to the 0.05%.

Hi. Retin-A 0.025% is the perfect way to start. It can definitely work to reduce your acne and especially blackheads. Just apply it all over your face, pea-sized amount. In the morning use and oil-free sunscreen. If redness and dryness are mild you can consider switching to a higher % next time you buy the cream. 🙂
