What does Tretinoin do for your skin and where can I get it online?


What is Tretinoin? 

Tretinoin is a FDA-approved, prescription-strength medication used to treat multiple skin conditions such as acne vulgaris, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, and premature aging. 

This cream is an active and powerful form of vitamin A. Ultimately it is the next step up from retinol products. It comes in various strengths, starting at 0.025 , and it may only be used with a prescription and is not suitable for ladies who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

  • Improve skin texture
  • Decrease the signs of aging
  • Increase hydration 
  • Improve complexion
  • Improve texture
  • Increase skin firmness
  • Reduce inflammation

How should I use Tretinoin?

It is important to apply tretinoin as part of your nighttime routine. Apply after using your cleanser but wait until your skin is completely dry before putting Tretinoin on. 

We would recommend that you start off with a low dose and apply just a pea-sized amount 2/3 times a week, so maybe every other day. 

Allow the product to absorb, and follow with a moisturiser. 

It is really important to remember to wear SPF every day.

Your skin may become dry and flaky when you initially start using tretinion, this is totally normal as essentially it is working to speed up the cycle of skin cells, getting rid of the old ones and regenerating new, healthy cells to take their place. 

Consistency is key, it can take up to 6 months to see results so please don’t give up.
