8% Glycolic Acid Lotion with Retin-A?

Hi all..I would like to know whether its safe to use Glycolic Acid lotion in conjuction with Retin-A? Will they work well with one another or its over-irritating to be use together? Any replies will be greatly appreciated! Thanks! :D

I'd rather not you could be seriously damaging your skin or get scars...

:naughty:

you can still do that when you're off it you see, but it's your choice, don't come crying if you mess it up :eh:

Yeah..did some reseach and its definately a NONO to use both glycolic acid and retin A together.. i am using retin A at night for the pass 1 month and in the morning i use clindamycin solution that my derm prescribe me. So if i use glycolic acid in the morning, can i use in conjuction with the clindamycin?

The clindamycin solution also contain 50% isopropyl alchohol which really makes my red spot redder but its working quite well against my acne together with retin a.. :)

Will irration occurs to use with glycolic with cilndamycin? i really dun wish to have a red face after using them together :wall:

Woah, I got prescribed Clindamycin solution and Retin-A, too. o_0

Anyway, I apply Clindamycin then wait 20 minutes and apply GA.
