DEBUNKING  FOUR RETIN-A MYTHS

You Can’t Use It in Summer OR On Your Beach Vacation
Retin-A does not increase your risk of sunburn. Combining it with island hopping may even be a good thing. Retin-A not only boosts collagen production, but may also have the potential to stop photo-aging before it starts. Usage has been shown to prevent the rise of collagenase—the enzyme that breaks down collagen—after UV exposure.
Don’t Put Retinoids on the Sensitive Skin around Your Eyes
Not only can you, you really should—that’s where most of the damage shows up. Studies have shown that people who apply Retin-A lightly right up to the eyes get the best results—more is not necessarily better. And if you get it in your eye? It may sting a little, but it won’t do any harm. And the skin around the eye is no more likely to get red or flaky than anywhere else on the face.
The Skin-Smoothing Benefits of Retin-A Plateau after About Six Months
The smoothing  benefits of Retin-A will significantly continue to improve skin over the course of the first year of usage. But the benefits don’t stop there.  Stick with the product and watch your skin your skin continue to transform over the years.
Consistent Retin-A usage :
• stimulates new collagen production while protecting existing collagen stores from intrinsic aging, the kind that just happens over time.
• minimizes pore size
• repairs sun damage and hyperpigmentation
• diminishes wrinkles and brown spots
DO stop Retin-A five days before chemical peels, laser treatments, and any waxing procedures.  DO wear sunscreen all day every day.
