Anyone using RetinA Micro

I was just curious as to how much you applied it at first. Cause ive been using it one night then not the next then using it again for a few days and my face is peeling. Also, how long did it take for you to be able to apply it every night? and for the peeling to stop??

I've been using it everynight. People are different. The peeling stopped for me after about a week.

Re: Anyone using RetinA Micro


Try applying a thin layer of eucerin skin cream on top of the retin-a at night. This not only prevents the peeling you are experiencing, but it also softens the skin and allows the sticky plugs to move out of your pores more effectively and essentially speeds the process of Retin-a.

Another tip.. try washing with cetaphil gentle cleanser (liquid, not bar) without water. See the back of the bottle for instructions on how to wash without water.

Good luck!

Re: Anyone using RetinA Micro

i use retin-a micro and i love it love it love it. but only use a pea size..when they say pea size..they mean pea size..not a pea size on your cheeck, one on your doesn't seem like much but it IS. anyway, everyones face is different. my face didn't peel, it did get dry but then i just used moisturizer, try using it every other day as your face gets used to it, then use it every night. but it does work very well. (for me anyway) so good luck and i hope it works foryou
