Are You Supposed To Rub In Till Retin-A Is Dry?

Recommended Posts

I've always wonders this, currently when I apply retin-a I apply it to my face and rub for about a minute til my face has no feeling of cream on it, is this the wrong way of doing it? Will it absorb more? Or is it s ply just drying out my skin and rubbing off with my hands?. Will it be better to leave a thin layer on my skin?

This goes for all facial creams not just retin-a.

You don't necessarily want to "rub it in," by putting pressure on your skin, but the Retin-A should be well distributed, as evenly as possible with only a light touch on the face.
