Retin-A is one of many topical prescription medications that uses tretinoin, an FDA-approved drug derived from vitamin A which stimulates skin cell turnover. Retin-A is often used to combat acne. Prepare to use sunscreen, though. Tretinoin-based drugs can make your skin more sensitive to the sun. LEARN MORE ›

Lol, His honesty is second to none.... READ MORE

Instead she said to give topicals a fighting chance... READ MORE
