Oh sorry I thought that was you. Do you recommend any skin care products? I currently use Elta MD and the Biophora lines

Nothing out of ordinary, retin a and your choice of moisturizer.

Retin A was awful for me. I used the Retin A micro .04% once a week and it made my skin red, peeling and crepe pappery
i have really sensitive rosatia type skin

Well, retin A is not 'right' for EVERYONE. Of course, if you are experiencing effects you don't want from it, than discontinuing use would be the way to go.

Laurad..I too have sensitive rocseca prone skin and could not tolerate Retin A. My derm switched me to tazorac cream and I am astounded with the results. It takes time tghough..you must start out very slowly. Once every 4 nights at first and gradually work up to every night. Not sure why I can tolerate this since it is supposedly very strong but it is amazing stuff!

Hey Sarah..the results are similar to retinA. Over time it has improved fine lines age spots and overall clarity and even firmness. Like I said it takes patience and you can expect peeling..but not the irritation and redness...I personally love it consider it my best defense in this endless anti aging battle.

I've used Tazorac off and on over the years and agree with Page's assessment. My skin tolerates it much better than Retin A. They are both very similar but I didn't have nearly as much peeling as I did from Retin A.
