Re: REtin A

You usually use it every night if your skin can handle it. If you were looking for something that will help your acne and your shallow scars, I would use acids on a daily basis. They not only clean your face extremely well, but they help to exfoliate your skin. If you used the acids you couldnít use them with retin-a since that would be way to drying, but they would work better than the retin-a.
