    Default Retin A Yes or No?

    Ok so when should you start using Retin A? or some kins of retinol product? or should we even be using it? If you have dry skin, can you get away with using this product a few times a week, maybe 3? And would it have any benefit if you were using it this much? And i heard once you start using it you have to keep on using it to see results, and that it thins the skin over time, so should we not start using it at a young age? How about mid 30's? Ok i know i've asked a lot of Questions, but i am so confused when it comes to this product, and would love to know some more, or anyone who has actually been using it...

    retin a builds collagen in the underneath layers of the skin and helps remove the dead skin from the area you are using it. it can be harsh on sensitive skin but it is the only proven drug that helps aging and acne. if you are starting out you could try a retinol product that is not prescription. they are a little bit safer. Retin a does not thin skin, steroid creams do that. retin a helps skin.

    Well my mom started using Retin A when she stepped into 35 and I started when I was of 27 years old(I know its early) but don't wanted to take any kind of risks of getting wrinkles and all. I m very much satisfied with it and would love to recommend to all as now I m of 36 and I look just 10 years back, I agree its not only with the help of Retin A only, yea offcourse credit goes to my skin care tips too but yeah Retin A was helpful ! Few days back I got one article on Skin Aging from here and I found it so strange that when our wrinkles become dimples gosh, its too effected for our skin and found Retin A is helpful on that note and yeah got so many other great ways and excuses too for my retin a cream usages.

    HI Guys, thanks for all your advice. Zeisha, i bet you have good genes too, but it's great you also have good results with retin. I am going to start with a retinol 1.25 product that a dermatologist gave me. Won't name the brand as not sure if your allowed here, anyway i'm sure they all do the same thing pretty much. WOuld love to hear your good skin care routine that you mentioned you have. Thanks Yassy
