I’m assuming this severe dry skin and flaking is from the Differin. I have been using it for over a month and have noticed my pores shrinking. I do not have terrible acne, just here and there. Should I stop the Differin and use an AHA BHA cleanser or change other products? I tagged me regimen. More details on a previous post. #help #differin #adapalene #flaking

Hey girl! So if you’re not moisturizing your skin enough/correctly any type of retinol/exfoliant will likely cause dry skin like this. I’ve been using adapalene for 2 years now and I totally get the dry issues- especially in winter. I think you’ve got a really great start to your regimen, I used to use the hydro boost gel and I still currently use the LRP gentle cleanser. Both definitely helped me but I think you need a richer moisturizer for PM. I like the hydroboost for day time because it’s light, but its not enough to really nourish your skin. Maybe try something like this: AM: If you can deal, don’t cleanse in the morning, the less you strip your skin the better. That cleanser is so gentle but I think you could even just go for a light wipe with a micellar water if your skin isn’t super oily! Next I’d apply your hydro boost gel, but apply it while your face is still wet/damp so your skin can use that excess water. I find not drying my face before moisturizing has helped a ton. Then let your face dry and apply a hydrating sunscreen. I just ordered the purito unscented centella sunscreen and I’m excited to try it out. Sun damage just ain’t worth it and will make your problem worse- even in winter! For PM: If I’m wearing makeup I start by removing it with micellar water. Cleanse with your LRP gentle cleanser. Then I’d try a thicker moisturizer, I really like my cerave PM. Let that dry, apply your adapalene. Let that dry, and then I have been using this Cosrx Rice Mask that I’m actually kind of in love with. I just started using the Inkey Q10 serum in the morning as an antioxidant shield and that’s just a nice small addition with some added hydrating benefits. If you really wanna try an AHA I just bought the Krave Kale-Lalu-yAHA and I’m really liking it so far so I definitely recommend :) Good luck!!

@Heather Marie id be careful with the type and frequency you use physical exfoliants, but the rise enzyme one sounds good! I’d maybe stick to once a week on that, with gentle pressure, and followed by a good moisturizer. There’s a lot of great brands that make paraben/fragrance/essential oil free products- I try to avoid those as well. I suggest you look into Krave, Paula’s Choice, Ren, and there’s some decent K Beauty brands that I am looking into as well, Cosrx, purito, iUnik! They’re out there, just about taking the time & researching the ingredients! I’m attaching a cool ingredients do’s & donts list that I found on skin junkie- def check it out! (Thanks Hyram)

@Taylor Burns I have definitely consider skipping my am wash. I’ll try the Bioderm Miccelar Water instead and see how it goes. AM- Gentle wash or Miccelar water, skin ceuticals CE Ferulic serum, Neutrogena hydro boost gel, Elta md sunscreen. PM- gentle wash and Miccelar water, Differin every other day, origins eye cream, moisturizer. I purchased tatcha rice enzymes for weekly exfoliation but have not used it yet. Any tips other than a richer pm moisturizer? I only use fragrance free and essential oil free products and good ones are really hard to find.

I used it for about 8+ months, it just wasn’t enough for my stubborn acne.

has anyone else used adapalene (differin) gel? if so how long did your purge last? i’m in week 3 of it and started to wonder if my heavier moisturizer (to combat the dryness) is breaking me out ):

i actually saw a review on this and you’re suppose to apply moisturizer 30 minutes after applying the gel. if you’re doing that and your skin is still breaking out, get rid of the heavy moisturizer and switch it for something lighter, if THAT doesn’t work, then quit the gel

Advice, Recommendations, Tips? I have sensitive combination skin. Oily t zone, black heads across cheeks and nose, occasional pimples. I only wear mascara and eyebrow pencil for makeup. I have eczema but only experience flares on my hands. I was using la Roche Posay gentle cleanser but felt some stinging after a few weeks so I switched to Vanicream cleanser. I was using Differin Adapalene gel nightly but due to flaking I have changed to every two or three nights. I use Neutrogena extra dry skin gel and Ella MD SPF moisturizer. I will be adding Bioderma Miccelar water for make up removal and Skin Ceuticals CE Ferulic serum to my daily routine. I also purchased Tatcha Rice Enzymes for weekly exfoliation and the Aztec Clay treatment for an occasional mask. Any comments on the products and routine? Recommendations for a fragrance free moisturizer and toner? Should I stop the Adapalene gel and use an AHA BHA cleanser at night? #help #recommendations #routine #skincare

That mask might be really irritating for your sensitive skin! Cerave has a really nice moisturizer and they’re fragrance free as far as I know and don’t have harmful ingredients

Can I use masks while on the differin gel? Or should I just avoid any other treatments beside the differin?

#skincare Any advice on getting rid of under the skin breakouts? My jawline is always covered in small skin colored bumps that never come to the surface but also don’t go away. I’ve tried everything from AHA/BHAs, benzoyl peroxide, and even differin. Nothing seems to work for me at all.
