Skin Care Review: Retin A
by Diane, Spokane, WA USA
Retin A 0.05% is an exfoliant and skin lightener. It also builds collagen.
Retin A can be irritating to the skin and sunscreen must be worn outside.
I have fair skin, older skin now, and I would consider my skin sensitive. I have used Retin A 0.05% for years and it has served me well. The key to using it is not to put it on heavy but very lightly. When first using the product, limit usage to three nights per week until your skin becomes acclimated to it. Then it can be used each night. If it is still too strong for your skin, mix it with a little moisturizer. A tube of Retin A should last at least three months, if used lightly. Sunscreen is a must when outside.
For myself, Retin A has been one of the best products in my facial regimen.
