On Retin-A--How long does the flakey skin last?

Recommended Posts

So I've only been on retin-a for maybe 2 weeks and I'm experiencing the anticipated flakey skin. I've read most posts about retin-a saying that this is a normal part of the process, but I'm just wondering how long I can expect the really dry, flakey skin to last. Also, I've heard much skepticism about whether or not it's good to use a moisturizer while on this topical. To be honest, I'm hoping it IS okay because I really do not want to go out in public with all this flaky, irritated skin...haha. So if any of you have experienced all this, two things: how long did it last? and what moisturizer worked well? Thank you!
