How Do You Reduce Skin Peeling While Using Differin Gel
Change treatments.: Differin (adapalene) also comes in cream form — creams are less drying than gels. If the cream still causes peeling, use less of it, or apply it at bedtime, or both.

What should I use as an exfoliator for peeling skin from using differin (adapalene) 0.1% gel? I've been using for 5 weeks; this is the 1st time I've had peeling.
No need.: Most retinoid creams (including differin) cause peeling sometimes, especially during cold weather. Often, all you have to do is apply a little less each night.

But exfoliation just causes more peeling in most cases. ...Read more
