Skin Care Review: Retin-A

by Anne, la mesa, CA usa


makes skin supple and prevents wrinkles

you have to gradually work up to using it because of irritation.

Many years of application of retin-a have definitely paid off...I have been a beachgoer and sun worshipper since my early teens in the 1960's...back then sunblock was nearly nonexistent. And why would you use it anyway? That would prevent you from getting a great tan?! I exposed my face as well as my body to UV rays for many my thirties, I began to become aware of wrinkles...that was when i started using retin-a on my face. however, it did cause significant flaking, redness and peeling at the beginning. So i started with the lowest concentration and used as directed...every few days.. as the years went by my skin became more accustomed to it and i began increasing frequency and later increased potency until now i am using the strongest formula every day. now at age 55 there is a real difference in my facial skin and the rest of my face is supple and much less lined than my arms and legs. I wish i could have afforded to use it on my entire body. However, i wondered if this would have caused a toxicity from absorption through the skin. I definitely am convinced that retin-a worked wonders on my face and recommend its use.

defititely recommend retin-a for wrinkle reduction
