In brief: Still have acne?

If you still have acne such as blackheads and whiteheads then retin a is appropropiate.
Acne does not stop at 19 in everybody. It is used only at night because it increases sensitivity to sunlight. A weaker version called Renova (tretinoin) is used for fine wrinkling in older individuals. Retin a is a relatively mild acne cream especially in the weaker strength of .025.

In brief: Yes

I agree that healty diet composed of fresh fruits and veggies is optimal for health, but you can certainly use retin a (tretinoin) (although you may want to go with a mild potencey cream - like 0.
025%). It is one way to keep your skin looking 24 years olds. Use at night and don't forget sunblock during the day.

At your age, i would try fresh fruits and vegetables.
Retin a (tretinoin) has place for severe cases of acne.
