What Are Retin A Alternatives? OTC?

Retin-A Alternatives

Some people have a hard time tolerating Retin A, but luckily there are some alternatives that may help those with sensitivities to Retin-A. Retinol, which you can get OTC, is milder but can also help with skin issues and because it's milder it can be less irritating. If you don't want to use any OTC products then there are some Retin-A alternatives that are better suited for sensitive skin, such as Refissa and Renova. You can also try diluting your Retin A with a moisturizer to see if that may help as well.
