I have been hearing and reading a lot about how good retinoids are for our skin, especially for the ones with acne. I never used for example retin-a in pure state but it is possible that I used moisturizers or other skincare with retinoids.

Today I wanted to go to the pharmacy and buy Retin a and oily Vitamin A (I am from Europe and we have this in pharmacies, also retin-a, without prescription). But then I wanted more info and I started reading a lot of articles and now I am confused. I know that lots of people with acne use this, but would you use it even if it is toxic...?
