  1. Also I would just like to add that if you are only washing your face in the morning, I would highly suggest also washing your face at night. Almost any dermatologist out there will tell you washing your face morning AND night is key to having clear skin.

Granted, it is mostly meant for smaller scars, so you would have to ask your dermatologist if he thought this was a good option for you, but many many people have gre
  6. So I have pretty light skin, and I normally dealt with this by going to the beach every once in a while, just so I wasn't pale as a ghost, and I really enjoy surfing so its not like it was a chore. But recently, I have started Treinoin(basically Retin-A) and I was specifically told to avoid the sun because my skin would be very sensitive for the next few months. Is there any possible way for me to not be EXTREMELY pale during the next few months? It just adds to self confidence issues, as in soc
