I tried Retinol A as per my derm's recommendation - I did it at night off and on for about two weeks. I went for a run (about 8K) at around 6pm - it was sunny but not hot and although my run lasted only 40 minutes I am now living a nightmare with my face! I have aged myself about 20 yrs as my eyes are extremely wrinkly and crepey and I have red leathery patches along my cheeks! I (like most people on this forum) have spent thousands of dollars on a mid-lift face lift, bleph surgery, fillers and Botox, but I've ruined all this with a $100 tube of skinceauticals retinol ointment - please people - if you value your skin DO NOT USE RETIN A for anything!! it is not worth it - no matter what others say. I hate looking in the mirror now, I used to be blessed with a pretty face that has a much younger look - now these deep retin wrinkles make me look like I'm a hundred years old - I cannot even disguise them with make up! I've been moisturizing my face like mad trying to erase the damage. I'm currently using Vitamin E oil from the caplets right on my face, as well as pro-derm light moisturizer for sensitive skin and flower fairy herbal healing balm - hopefully I can return my skin to normal again *sigh - I'm so depressed over this :(
