Retin A also known as tretinoin is recommended by many cosmetic surgeons and dermatologists to their clients and has been the perfect skin secret of many celebrities and movie stars. Many doctors say that if you're only going to use one thing on your face make it Retinoid. Retinoid is a synthetic form of Vitamin A. It has great exfoliating and antioxidizing properties while at the same time works below your skin improving collagen production to smooth out wrinkles, scars and fine lines. It was first introduced and gained popularity as an acne treatment in the 70's and 80's before its miraculous wrinkle fighting and anti-anti aging properties were discovered.
Retin A takes time for your skin to get used to and most people go through a short stage where their skin actually gets worse before it starts getting better and start seeing the remarkable benefits of continued use. Should be used sparingly at first only about every three days and gradually working your way up to daily use. Best used at night because sunlight can neutralize the effectiveness of Retin A. Also be sure to wear a strong SPF sun block when exposed to sunlight while using Retin A.
