Topicals can help: So glycolic acid or alpha-hydroxy acid based creams can help, along with augmentation with over the counter topical retinol creams(used at night). But prescription strength skin peels(often with stronger glycolic acid or trichloroacetic acid) in combination with prescription retinoic acids have a stronger effect. Laser resurfacing is another viable option instead of mechanical dermabrasion. ...Read more

Do not stop vitamin: Try taking the folic acid at night or with a meal. If it comes as several pills (most OTC folic acid is 400mcg, so you need 2-3 for your prenatal dose), you can try taking a pill with each meal. It's also acceptable to try chewable vitamins, like Flintstones or gummy prenatals. Just talk to your doctor about the dosage he or she prefers you to have. ...Read more
