Retinoid to Prevent Wrinkles & Fine Lines
It is very effective in curing acne, pigmentation and damage caused due to sun damage. It helps to exfoliate skin, thus removing dead cells and bring new skin cells on the top. It prevents your pores from getting clogged and prevents large pores. Topical retinoid can also cure problems arising out of warts, eczema and psoriasis.
Retinoid takes time to work and there is a probability that your skin will irritate or flake before it starts to show results. After the application of retinoid, for the first few days or weeks your skin might even breakout and get dry. But for it to be effective, it takes some time. You will see noticeable changes in your skin in about 8 weeks.
We suggest you apply retinoid on alternate days and not daily. You can use a diluted version by mixing it in a moisturizer. This will give your skin some time to adjust to it.
Ideally it is best to apply retinoid in the night. If you apply in the day, ensure you apply a sunscreen before you step out. If possible, avoid too much of sun exposure.

Always wash the area where it needs to be applied, wait for almost 30 minutes before you apply a cream with retinoid. Skin which is damp is more sensitive to retinoid, so apply it after the skin is dry. See to it that you are careful when applying the product around your eyes. Avoid applying it to upper eyelids.
You can get retinoid via prescription and over the counter. If you are unsure, it is best to ask a skin expert or dermatologist.
