Is anybody else on prescription Retin-A (tretinoin 0.05%)? I’ll be finishing my 6th week tonight, so I’m right in the middle of my second month where they say it’s the horrible peeling off phase. I apply twice a week and I’m still waiting for the peeling to start but I haven’t seen any major peeling. So I’m not sure if I should brace myself for possibly incoming purge or not.
Anyway, I’ve been really focusing on moisturizing and hydrating my skin to make my skin counteract the terrible phase - to get glowing, amazing skin and the amazing other side benefits of retinol! So I’ve been really enjoying these moisturizers:
@drjart Ceramidin Créme
@aveneusa Hydrance Cream
@skinregimenofficial Tripeptide Cream
I’m trying to get peptides, ceramides, non-comedogenic occlusives and hyaluronic acid in my moisturizers so these are my skin’s favorites at the moment.
What are yours? Let me know if I’m missing out on any others! - 10 hours ago
