Are there any good alternatives to Tretinoin and Retinol if it is unsuitable for my skin?
There are a few strategies you can consider:
1) Use a simple base moisturiser before application to reduce skin irritation.
2) Reduce contact time of Tretinoin on your skin. Wash off after a short duration of time e.g. after 30-60mins and then apply a simple moisturizer on the skin.
3) Consider using an alternative retinoid such as adapalene cream which is less irritating compared to Tretinoin cream.
4) Consider an alternative non-retinoid anti-ageing cream such as low concentration vitamin C.
Hope some of these suggestions work for you!
