Hi all,
My darling hubs is beginning to learn to be consistent with moisturiser and is now quite good with sunscreen as he has very fair thin skin which doesn't tan but burn really quick. He burns within a few mins of sunlight even on a cold day. So he now always has sunscreen.
I've got 0.05% tretinoin (Ketrel) and Adapalene gel 0.3% (Differin). I understand retinoids are not good when TTC so I've stopped using them. I'm wondering whether he can use these. Are men to stay away from them when TTC and if not are they OK for men who burn in the sun ie gingers.
Thanks.

RA and Differin are not gender specific. That being said, I wouldn't recommend them if your hubs is sensitive to sunlight already. These would only make matter worse for him. Bless the gingers of the world :)

@Titi no, just facial anti ageing as I'd use for myself. He has freckles all over his body but not his face.
This cream is good for redhead, especially to get rid freckless and rejuvenate the skin 397-Shirley Medicated Stick Cream (10 g)
Tretinoin, azelaic acid and Co are not god for redhead people, your husband's face will become red or pink. If you really want something like that, try a retinol cream.
