Best Moisturizer To Use With Tretinoin
I use a pricey. 03% retinol cream on my face. Would the benefits be the same if I mixed generic tretinoin cream with a moisturizer?
Difficult to say: Not all moisturizers are equal and you should use a non-comedogenic mositurizer. Furthermore not all delivery vehicles or preparations are equivalent. Microspheres allows a time release effect that is more gentle on skin. Furthermore separation of the two components allows you to increase the potency as you build tolerance. I am a fan of the component approach albeit the inconvenience. ...Read more

Used retin A (tretinoin) twice on penis head...skin burned, reddish and sore patches. Applying Vaseline, moisturizer for 3 days. Can I apply Betnovate ointment?
Stop: I have no idea why you want to put Retin A (tretinoin) on your penis head since there is no wrinkle there. If anything, try topical hydrocortisone for a few days to calm the inflammation down (I presume however that Betnovate is a brand of cortisone containing betamethasone. If so, it is ok to use it once a day for 3-4 days but no more). ...Read more

Can I use bio-oil over my retin-a micro at night to help my face further with some scarring and uneven skintone? Or is a moisturizer better to use?
Oil and facial skin: I would suggest an oil-free non-comedogenic moisturizer if retin a (tretinoin) is too drying for your skin. Better yet, decrease the concentration and/or frequency of applications of retin a (tretinoin) until your skin gets used to it. Oils applied to the skin will make you more likely to break out which may lead to additional scarring. ...Read more

Is olay total effects day time SPF 15 good to use as I'm using tretinoin at night? Or would you suggest a better moisturiser? I have one with argeline
Not bad but more SPF:
olay total effects day time spf 15 is better than not using any sun screen but spf 15 is a little weak protection. If possible, consider adding more sunscreen after using olay moisturizer more than spg 30 or higher. Tretinoin can make your skin a little more photosensitive, so high spf sunscreen is recommended. Good luck! ...Read more

Do I have to tone after using asap aha cleanser then moisturise? I use the cleanser morning and night and apply 0.05% stieva-a cream (tretinoin)
If skin is very oily: Tretinoin can be fairly drying, so I would not recommend a toner unless your skin is very oily after cleansing. It usually works great to cleanse, then apply a small amount of hydrating lotiion. At night, mix a drop of the tretnoin with the lotion if you like. It is easier to spread thinly that way. If your skin is dry, definitely avoid an alcohol based toner. ...Read more

Can I dilute retin-a micro? I have the pump bottle of. 1% but my face peels too much from it. Can I add it to moisturizer?
Not a good idea: The interaction of various mixed materials is unpredictable and may increase you side effects. Try reducing the time duration of your Retin-A application in hours until the problem subsides. The longer it is on, the more likely for some to peal. If 1 hour is not tolerated you may need to drop to a weaker dilution. ...Read more
