Retin A & Hydroquinone 4%? Is that a NO-NO?

Recommended Posts

I keep hearing of people mixing Retin A at night and Hydroquinone during the day topped of with a good sun screen and also people using Retin A and night and BP during the day. Is this Safe?

I have a prescription for Hydroquinone 4% but stopped using it after hearing a few horror stories about blotching & skin Cancer (I am Black by the way). Anyway I am into my 3rd week of Retin A and I am in that horrible initial break out period and my chin has exploded in little pimples and I have one small cyst. I am being a good girl and keeping my hands off (no picking or squeezing).

Can I use either BP or Hydroquinone with the Retin A?
