The health of your skin is as important as the health of your body. Like your body your skin needs certain vitamins to keep looking healthy and young. Vitamin A is one of them and it comes in creams with familiar names like Retin A, Treinoin, or Renova.
Vitamin A can do so much for our skin, but is mainly used for acne and reducing the signs of aging. I use my Tretinoin cream with Zo Medical by Zein Obagi to get the full effects of my Vitamin A cream. By blending 2 pumps of Melamix Skin Lightener and Blending Cream with my Tretinoin I get greater results with my Vitamin A and evens out my skin tone as well.
All Vitamin A products can be irritating and you may experience peeling, itching, and redness. If you are in the sun you need to WEAR SUNSCREEN. The sun can be really irritating to our skin when we are using Vitamin A creams. The reason for this is Vitamin A creams try to heal our skin and UV rays are trying to damage our skin at the same time causing our skin’s cellular activity to speed up, that is why sunscreen is so important.
Most Vitamin A creams are by prescription only. Ask your dermatologist about using any of the prescription Vitamin A creams for your skin and what one would be best for your skin type.
If you can overcome the essential discomfort of Vitamin A creams you will be so happy with way your skin looks.
