i have differin 0.3... is there a way to make it 0.1?

the doc gave me differin 0.3 gel... well it made my face CRAZY dry, and omg it hurt so bad. is there a way to dilute it and get it to the 0.1% instead? like maybe mix it in with some hydrocortisone cream or something like that? !? i'd hate to pay that price again....

You can buffer retinoids with a serum or light moisturizer. You will definitely tone down their effectiveness by using something like Olay regenerist fragrance free formula. It will also help with redmarks and is not too oily. Put it on, wait about 10-15 minutes then apply your pea-sized amount of Differin. Do not use more than recommended. It's usually why people get a lot of irritation..too much product. More is not better when it comes to retinoids.
