Question Neosporin

hey you guys
iv been using neosporin after i put put on the Retin-A micro, has anyone else tried this? It seems to be working alright but i might go try the regenerist serum because i dont like how sticky my face feels with the neosporin and how it gets on my pillow. . tell me what you guys think

I use Retin A Micro but i've never tried it with neosprorin, what does it help in? Reduce size of them? Speed up the process? Maybe i'll try it.

Neosporin would make me breakout more....So I just use regular moisturizer...By keeping the skin moist after using Retin-A it heals faster...Dry skin is known to heal slower because it is irritated skin...How u guys finding the Retin-A so far???

it seems to be improving my skin...less redness...not as much peeling. but then iv only been using the retin-a for two or threenithts. my theory is the neosporin might keep it a more sterile environment and keep bacteria away while i sleep. i dont know maybe the retin-a is doing that on its own.

Other than some comedogenic ingredients in neosporin (mainly Petrolatum) it is good for skin problems like acne because of the extreme concentration of zinc. I suggest it to anyone that has popped a zit/pimple or has some redmarks left over in areas that arent acne prone.

The regenerist is good for improving redness and irritation. It helped heal a huge under the skin zit that I had. This zit was bulging out of my chin and it was all red (this was Friday) I used the regenerist every day and on Monday it was barely visible.

interesting reaction, today i noticed that the retina has peeled away the skin around/on all the zits. so now i have tiny little circles of peeled skin. It doesnt seem to be getting to the healthy skin around the zits yet. anyone else experience this?

Use Aloe vera gel, works better and is natural and better for the skin.....plus cheap.
