Differin 1X Or 2X Per Day?differin
Posted 31 December 2012 - 01:12 PM
I've been on differin for a few weeks. I apply once per day. I've read in some logs that people have applied differin or Retin-a 2x per day. I'm just wondering whether this is a good idea? What are the pros and cons?

Also, it can be very drying. Differin does not "stop working". It is active for as long as its on your skin. Additional applications will not improve effectiveness. As long as you haven't washed it away, it's still working and more will just increase the dryness and peeling.
Talk to your doc, maybe they can increase the medication percentage. Also, Differin works by increasing cell turnover and sloughing off of dead cells. Your skin cannot grow any faster than it already is. You risk having a raw, red face that is more prone to scarring due to sun sensitivity.
People who report increased improvement with multiple applications are probably washing thier face in the Am, applying and then applying after washing again in the evening. I have pretty hardy skin, and can't imagine peeling any more than I already am.
