| | Retin-A Tazorac/ best w/alpha hydroxy
I just wanted to mention this because I was doing some research on the boards about Tazarac, as I just started using it yesterday. I found that a lot of people were complaining about their problems with flaky skin. I was on Retin-A for a couple of years and I finally discovered after a while that using alpha hydroxy in the mornings solved the flaking problem. I am going to experiment with BHA and Tazarac, as they are both new to me but I imagine the same pricipals will apply. I would be careful to only try the alpha hydroxy after you have used the Retin-A for some time so you are at the point of being fairly used to it. It made the whole experience MUCH BETTER. I stopped using the Retin-A because I went on acutane and then stayed clear for a few years. I have had some acne return and went yerterday to the derm who prescribed the Tazorac, which wasn't around when I was having my problems 7-8 years ago.
Hope all this helps.
If anyone knows if BHA is very different from Alha hydroxy in how the AH disolves skin, I would love some more information.
