How do you reduce skin peeling while using differin (adapalene) 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. If it still dries your skin, ask your dermatologist for a different treatment. Trying to neutralize a drying skin treatment with moisturizers is an exercise in futility, and defeats the whole purpose. ...Read more

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. You can also use a light moisturizer if you wish (one that says "non-comedogenic" on the label). If the peeling persists, try skipping a day of treatment. But exfoliation just causes more peeling in most cases. ...Read more

Dry peeling skin on differin (adapalene) is this a good sign?

Yes: This is exactly what one should expect from a topical retinoid (differin (adapalene) is a retinoid). In the early studies on this class of medicine the researchers felt that if a patient is not getting red and peeling then the strength of the retinoid is not high enough. This side effect can often resolve or can be alleviated with a simple noncomedogenic moisturizer. Good question. ...Read more
