Retnoids are the category in which the most advances have been made. The most current research underlines the importance of incorporating a retnoid into your anti-acne regimen. Using a gentle cleanser, applying a moisturizer before you apply the retinoid, or using a retinoid on an every other day basis will reduce the chances of dryness and irritation. The following types are retinoids:
Tretinoin – is available as a gel, cream, a solution, or even in the form of slow release micro sponges. Tretinoin is unstable in sunlight, so use at night.
Tazarotene – acts quickly to control acne. Available in a cream or gel, Tazarotene seems to be the most effective retinoid to shrink enlarged pores.
Adapalene – is less irritating than others in this category. It is not affected by sunlight and can be used in combination with benzoyl peroxide. It is available as a cream, gel, a solution, or wipes in different strengths.
