Is there any truth to mixing Retin A with lotion? I have been told that this will increase penetration of the drug as well as provide less drying effect. Is there any truth to this? Thanks very much in advance.

Retin A to neck and chest
Retin-A should not be applied anywhere but the face unless you have consulted a physician in person. There are very strong Retin-A versions and the neck and chest will become severely aggravated, red, and sometimes permanently damaged by applying Retin-A incorrectly. Before you do anything like this, consult with a dermatologist for an evaluation in person!
