Retin-A 1% First Time Under Eyes: Woke with Darker Circles

I already have dark circles and am hoping the Retin-A will improve them. Today they are more purple and just darker. Will this stop with continued use or should I not use the Retin-A there anymore?

Depending on your color nad type o skin start very slowly with retin A, may be start Retin A micro and the entire OBAJI skin care.

Dpending on your color may do light peels after 6 weeks.

Now your skin look more dark because of the dryness. Use sunscreen SPF45 and up especially in Jordan.

Hydroquinone to lighten the skin ( OBAJI skin care has a lightening cream).
