I'm using tretinoin at night and BP + aha during the day i want to add bha on my regimen.. Is it ok? What the best time to use bha on my regimen?
Fine tune regimen: Tretinoin should only be used at night because of hypersensitivity to light caused by retin a (tretinoin).

Not recommended.: Differin (adapalene) is a topical retinoid medication similar to vitamin a. It is helpful in nearly all cases of acne.
