I started using a 1% Retinol A product two months ago. I never use it more than once a week and only use a pea size amount each time. My skin had little to no peeling at first, and no other effects.
However, two months later, I am still only using the same amount, once a week but the peeling seems to have got worse and there is a slight 'sunburn' feel in some areas now. I would have thought my skin would be getting more used to it. I have started using a face cloth in evenings and morning to gently exfoliate but perhaps this is irritating it more.
Does anyone have experience with these type of products? Does your skin ever get used to it? I was using a retinoid product before this so it wasn't like I jumped straight in!
Thanks for any advice.
