If I MUST Go into the Sun, How Long Should One Stop Using Retin-A Beforehand?
I am due to head out to Southern Africa at the height of their summer in 2011 and I will do my best to stay out of direct sunlight and wear sunscreens, hats and sunglasses. Although I will not be 'suntanning', there will be days where I will be obliged to be in their harsh, direct sunlight or subjected to reflection off the sea. To minimise any bad side-effects, I want to stop using Retin-A for two weeks beforehand. Will this be enough?
When to stop Retin-A before sun exposure?
