Post retin-a-mirco users, in the morning>>>

just a quick question:
I apply retin at night before bed, so the next day morning, should i wash my face with the same kind clenser i used the night before, or should i not wash my face and just put on sunscreen so retin stays longer on my face, or does it matter?

so for how those using retin-a, what do u guys do/use in th morning?

I wash it off because in the morning I have to apply clindamycin gel. I suggest that you wash your face in the morning and maybe ask your dermatologist for something that you could apply in the morning that'll stay on untill you put on retin-a.

wash it off. i too apply clindamycin gel in the morning, but whether or not you use something else, you need to wash it off because retin a micro can have a reaction with the sun - it'll make you burn bad.
