Why You Should Maintain Tretinoin / Retinoic Acid Year Round

Why You Should Maintain Tretinoin / Retinoic Acid Year Round

One of the misconceptions regarding tretinoin is that it thins the skin and makes skin more susceptible to sun burn. Experts would disagree! Although this can appear true during your skin's initial adjustment period [to utilizing Obagi NuDerm, tretinoin], with continued use, the epidermis is actually thickened and strengthened!

It is extremely important that you always use a high quaility sunscreen year round.
