Adapalene vs Tretinoin: We Break Down The Acne & Aging Powerhouse Ingredients – mindbodygreen.com

Posted: June 22, 2021 at 1:51 am


Tretinoin is by no means new to skincare. In fact, it was the first FDA-approved retinoid to help treat and prevent acne. Tretinoin is another topical retinoid, derived from vitamin A, that also helps to prevent and treat acne, Libby says. It is more well-studied for its anti-aging benefits and works to increase cell turnover, improving the thickness of the epidermis and minimizing fine lines, while improving discolorations and treating acne, she says.

Unlike adapalene, you cant buy tretinoin over-the-counter. This retinoid is only available by prescription. One of the downsides of tretinoin is the timeline it takes to see results and the possibility of pesky side effects.

For example, if you have sensitive skin, this may not be the retinoid for you. Tretinoin works by irritating further to activate cell turnover, you may experience redness, irritation, blisters, and even a change in skin pigmentation. So, its important to only use this product with the supervision of a doctor. And even with the undesirable side effects, research shows that tretinoin helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, correct skin texture and tone and even reduce hyperpigmentation.
