Product Review Getting Rid of the Retin A Flakes A Well
A few years ago a friend told me both she and her mother had discovered the secret to anti-aging -- Retin-A. Now that I'm in the business of beauty and skincare, I've done a ton of research on anti-aging products and what I've found is that dermatologists agree on one thing: The only anti-ager on the market that has proven again and again to reduce fine lines and wrinkles is tretinoin, a derivative of Vitamin A.
Retin A, too dry skin, make up issues! - Bitter Kittens
Flaking skin is a pretty widely accepted part of tretinoin usage, and I’ve found a few ways to combat this unpleasant side effect. Since the tretinoin is the first product applied (to bare skin) that means starting the skin care routine early. For me it was a little over 6 weeks (I still flake if I get impatient and apply it to semi wet skin though, and keep in mind I’m on a 0.01% product) but up to 3 months adjustment time is considered normal. Again, the adjustment time may vary, but some products may just not be rht any more. That will only compound the irritation, cause or worsen PIH (Post-Inflammatory Hyperpmentation) and sun damage, and if you burn in the way I do, it could cause more peeling and flakes. I’m having some luck with Cera Ve in the tub topped with Vaseline.

Retinol is one step 'down' from Retinoic Acid chemiy. It delivers similar benefits, but takes longer to work, and is available over-the-counter.

Unfortunately, dry skin, peeling, and flaking are pretty much par for the course when you're using a topical retinoid like Retin-A.
