Skin Care Review: Retin A Micro (for acne)

by Barbara, Palm Haror, FL United States

Adverse Effects

Noticed some improvement of pigmentation irregularities

Irritation and more breakouts (although they do heal quickly)

After using Retin A Micro .1% for approx. 2 months my skin is breaking out more than usual. Also during exercise or sweating my skin burns really bad! My eyelids are peeling! And I really don't notice much improvment in pigment change. Im told I will eventually notice improvement but I am loosing my patience. I would like to know what cleanser and what sunscreens work best while using this product. I live in FL so sunscreen is a must and I am outdoors quite a lot. If someone can help I'd really appreciate it.

Too early to give advice. Just make sure you use a gentle cleanser and sunscreen.
