Retin-A application on night shift
Great question! Since most night shift staff members sleep in the dark I would suggest applying your Retin A before you go to sleep. Maintain a strict habit of wearing spf during day light hours regardless of your work schedule.
Retin-A is great for fine lines and wrinkles, texture, tone and break outs. Our patients benefit from regular usage of their Retin-A combined with a skin care regimen at home that includes moisturizers with antioxidants and growth factors such as Skin Medica TNS Essential Serum and Sente' Dermal Repair Cream and Bio Complete Serum.
Hope this helps. Good luck.
