What To Do... ?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have VERY sensitive skin and the doctor gave me 'Retin A gel 0.01%' and 'Tetralysal Tablets' for my acne. Its worked abit.

I have no spots, Just red dots which I think are acne scars.

Using the retin A gel, my face gets very dry and very rough.

My mom told me to moisturise, which is what I need.

Although I heard that purfume and soap moisturises are bad for my skin as when I do it, within a couple of hours, spots start showing up.

I bought a none purfume, none soap moisturiser and put it on, rubbed it in very hard.

I have a feeling I am going to get more spots from doing this as my face feels oily.

Should moisturise (using the non soap, non purfume moisturizer) or put on the retin A gel?

My skin is soo dry, rough and sensitive :(

What to do?

NO, dont put on a moisturizer after retin-a that will make the retin-a uneffective. Put the retin-a on at night then wash your face in the morning and put you moisturizer on.

I know, I mean will the 'Simple Moisturizor' be ok.

I will continue putting on the retin A and then the moisturizor in the morning
