Wrinkles after #Retin-A use?
Dear lue4028: Without photos, it is difficult to say with certainty but you are probably getting some fine wrinkles because of normal aging, as well as sun exposure without a truly broad-spectrum sunscreen. I would try to find a sunscreen with #MicronizedZincOxide or add a properly-formulated #VitaminC or #GreenTea cream to your regimen. Retin-A is very effective for wrinkles, sun damage, discoloration, and acne but in some it causes irritation so you could consider switching to #Retinol (if you decide to get one with a high concentration of green tea polyphenols, that will solve your problem with the sunscreen being inadequate to the task) which should not be irritating at all. Also, if you use a rich moisturizer at night such as #Teoxane and drink a large glass of water before going to bed you should not wake up with wrinkles that go away during the day (unless you are finding them on the side of your face that you sleep on!).I hope this is helpful to you.
