How to Use Retin A Correctly: Wash your hands and then your face because bacteria can be transferred from your hands to your face and there no point washing your face if your hands are covered with bacteria!
Then wait 20 or so minutes for your face to dry. This stage is very important. You want your skin dry when you are starting the Retin A because water will actually help absorb the product and in the beginning the Retin A is strong enough, trust me.
So wait 20 minutes so your face is 100% dry and then apply one small pea sized amount onto the back of your hand, and this pea sized cream or gel will be for your entire face and neck. Avoid your skin around your nose, around your mouth, your eyelids and underneath your eyes should be avoided to start with as these are more sensitive than the rest of your face. Now a quick tip, if you have been using retin A and feel there are certain areas that are more sensitive than others, like around your nostrils, then before you apply your retin a apply some Vaseline to the affected area and this will act as a barrier. Then apply your retin A being careful to avoid the area that has Vaseline on it.
Now to help your skin in the begging, you might want to apply some moisturizer to your face before or after you apply the retin A, this is going to help dilute the strength a little. I still put moisturizer on and I have been using retin A for years as I find it very drying on my skin! I actually mix my moisturizer and my Retin A together and apply it to my face, because my face is very sensitive I want to be as kind as possible and this is a really great trick to use!
If you are using this technique, then a good way to tell if you have put to much retin a on is if your moisturize turns a yellowish colour.
I would also suggest using other products such as moisturisers or face washes that are very mild and designed for sensitive skin as we don’t want to aggravate our skin we want to treat it with soothing products that have a calming effect.
With retin a I suggest you put it on at night maybe twice a week or even once a week to start. Less is more with this stuff as it is very powerful, and you don’t want to have irritation and sensitive skin. Now if you do start to have a lot of sensitivity, peeling, dryness etc, then I would recommend cutting the size you apply back while your skin adjusts. Only apply a small pea sized amount! As you don’t want to overdose your skin.
