If I have a tan and am using Retin-A. Will it make my tan fade away quicker than normal?
Will Using Retin-A Lighten a Skin Tan?

Retin A does not bleach the skin, and it has no effect on skin tan.
Retin A will peel the skin in flakes, it will rebuild the collagen and elastin layers in the dermis. It will improve on the color of the skin caused by sun damage.
