the majority of the people here use Retin-A as an exfoliant, it removes dead skin cells rapidly while changing the physiology of damaged skin, it interferes with the melanocytes so less melanin is produced which makes the skin lighter in addition to the old skin thats been exfoliated away, revealing younger looking skin.

Many of us are & it works very well; esp if a person uses HQ4% as well. For some reason, the 2 creams augment eachothers' effects. Derms say that RA & it's exfoliating effect helps the HQ absorb better. In formulations where the 2 are mixed together (like Tri-Luma & DHR cream) somehow (derms have documented this but cannot yet explain it) both work more effectively. RA is strong, though; & many people's skin can't tolerate it. If you're thinking of trying it, get the weakest strength first (0.025%) then, as your skin adjusts, work your way up.
