Before you could TAN? Seriously?! Trust me on this one, as someone with Greek-olive skin, on Retin A, your skin becomes extremely sensitive to the sun and will burn quickly. Use a sunscreen, or you can be like me and have your first sunburn ever after only 15 minutes in the sun

I could tan fine with Differin but not Retin A. I've heard, however, this sensitive to sun decreases after about 4 months on Retin A
