Using a moisturizer with tretinoin is mandatory to reduce irritation risks. There are two ways you could layer your moisturizer when following a tretinoin treatment. To avoid risking irritating your skin, start by using a moisturizer before you layer tretinoin and after it. Sandwiching your tretinoin will most likely keep damage at bay. The best moisturizer to pair with tretinoin is one that aims to repair the skin barrier and has hydrating properties. Tretinoin works best when used with reparative ingredients to reduce the chances of irritation and dryness.

Starting from early adulthood, your body slows down the production of collagen by 1% to 1.5% each year. As one of the major components of your skin, collagen affects both its health and appearance. As such, your skin’s aging process is not only an aesthetic concern. Like any body part, your skin can develop issues and challenges over time due to inadequate care and poor lifestyle habits.

If you feel your skin is too itchy, easily reactive, can’t tolerate harsh products, or have breakouts, you know you need anti-inflammatory skincare ingredients. Anti-inflammatory ingredients have always had a crucial role in skincare, without which acne, redness, and rosacea couldn’t have ever been soothed. They are great to help calm irritations and comfort the skin, whether it’s about dealing with inflammatory skin conditions or a simple sensitivity to a chemical compound. Which, by the way, happens quite often.
