• Learning how to apply Retin-A is not that hard. All you will need are: an exfoliating scrub, a mild soap, some moisturizing cream and of course Retin-A.
• The best time to put Retin-A is before you go to bed. First of clean you face. Use a mild soap and warm water for that. Now gently pat dry your skin. Let it rest for at least 30 minutes before you apply Retin-A on it.
• After the 30 minutes is over, gently massage a pea-sized Retin-A on your whole face. Make sure it stays in a thin layer. Never ever put this product near sensitive skin areas like those around your nose, eyes and lips. One thing you should remember is that you cannot put any other skin creams or lotions once you have applied Retin-A to your face. Now leave the product on your face for the night.
• In the morning, again use that mild soap as well as an exfoliating scrub to remove all traces of the product from your face as well any skin flaking that will occur. Now apply a good moisturizing cream to your face so that the peeling and drying effect of Retin-A is minimized.
