Sould I avoid any kind of light when Retin-A is on my face? I mean is Retin-A a light-sensative cream? and how many minutes/hours should Retin-a remain on my face before washing?
Retin-A , should be applied once a day, in the evening, to the skin where acne lesions appear, using enough to cover the entire affected area lightly. Leave on overnight.
Sunscreen and protective clothing should be used when outside during the day.
Minimize your time out in the sun if possible whilst using Retin-A.
