Fawnie - Thanks for the post. It is one of the clearest explanations that I have seen.Here's some info I found about it:
Skin Care Myths and Misconceptions: Retinol vs Retin A
I've found this website to be reliable and informative. HTH!
Thanks Fawnie. I think that they say a year because they don't want people to get impatient and to give up prematurely.Some ppl say that it takes about a year to realize improvement from Retin-A, but I think I see improvement now!
Thanks for the link. I looked at the formulations and just might try it myself. It will take me awhile to get all the fixings together, though. The more interesting ones have ingredients that are not readily available, and will have to be shipped to me (the customs folks will just love this one - I am "over the border" in Canada). I'll probably start with one of the simplier formulations.
