The Retinoid Debate

Petra Guglielmetti, one of the editors over at Glamour’s beauty blog, has started to chart her progress on a new skincare routine in the months leading up to her wedding. She recently posted about her issues with retinoids and how her only experience with them was negative (and took place during high school). Her issues were pealing skin, redness, irritation, etc. However, we all keep hearing how retinoids are the ONLY thing you can do to your skin that will have any noticeable impact. Is this correct? Should we all be on some form of vitamin A derivative? Petra’s doctor prescribed Atralin. We will have to follow her progress and see how things develop.
