Safe Exfoliant to Use While on Doryx and Tretinoin?

I am on Doryx 150mg and Tretinoin 0.025%. I am a African American with dark acne spots. Is it ok for me to use Dermalogica Gentle Cream Exfoliant for those dark spots?

 Thank you for your question.

You should have no problem with this Dermatologica cream. It contains salicylic acid and lactic acid which are great at being gentle exfoliators. You can also use a glycolic 10% wash as an exfoliant or toner as another option.

Hope this helps!
