Retinoic acid: Especially if there are a lot of blackheads, a retinoic acid product that your physician can offer may be your best choice. Herbs and home remedies will fail. But retinoid acid is boosted-up vitamin a -- a great gift from mother nature. Surely this is okay to use if you believe that "natural is better." best wishes.
