Retin-A....morning and night or just night?

Hi, I've been using Retin-A since March of this year. I use it everynight and I love the results I've gotten.

My question is...does anyone here use it morning and night? Or do you just use it at night? I'm asking because I am wondering if it will amp up the results?

TIA:)

Night only. You shouldn't wear it outside in daytime.

Sometimes you just need to take a nap and get over it.

It is recommended that Retin-A be used only at night as the product is light sensitive and becomes less efficient but the most important is that it makes your skin hyper-sensitive to the sun. That is why it is recommended to wear lots of sunscreen while using Retin-A. If you feel ready to "Amp" up your Retin-A, why don't you increase the percentage you are using? Pats

Only nite

Use a great antioxidant like Vitamin C or Paula's Choice Antioxidant serum and sunscreen in the morning, you will love the results of this and your retin A at night

HTH :)

Thank you everyone!:)

I'll only use it at night then.

OCGurl, I do use a vitamin c serum and a vitamin c cream during the day. I use Avalon Organics vit c serum and oil free vit c cream. I'll have to look into the antioxident serum from Paula's choice.:)

OC, I hope you are having a beautiful day in OC. That is where we are moving to if and when we can sell our home!

the Avalon Organics is a great one too, I have used that one in the past.

Paula's Choice is a very well rounded no nonsense antioxidant with a great ingredient deck, as well in very good packaging, it does have dimethicone in it, so if your skin doesnt like this then stick with your Avalon.

Sounds like you have made great choices in skincare with your Vit C in the morning and RA at nite, simple, basic and it works.

Today is a fine day here in the OC, but cloudy and dreary which is unusual, but there is a storm off the coast that is affecting the weather

it hasnt been as hot this summer, which has been a relief on my electric bill :)

Night only. Sunlight will break down the active ingredients.
