**if you dont have acne problems



Tretinoin permanently makes your skin sensitive to the sun . Theres zero reason you should use retin-a as a young person, its an autistic cope unless youre prepared to wear and reapply sunscreen for life.



Dermarolling + vitamin C is insanely legit



Then start retin-a at 26-33 yrs old

topical vitamin C

You have to commit to microneedling. Vitamin c by itself is worthless.


Don’t worry about it too much tbh, this is just min-maxing at this point

i hate putting effort into shit though, i just wanna slap some shit on my face and be done with it. i am going to start using sunscreen every day anyways ngl tbh
I would just do vitamin c topical in that case

It helps protect your skin from the sun



Or tretinoin in at night, vitamin c and sunscreen in mourning

Vitamin C limits the damage induced by ultraviolet (UV) light exposure. Vitamin C is not a “sunscreen” because it does not absorb light in the UVA or UVB spectrum. Rather, the antioxidant activity of vitamin C protects against UV-induced damage caused by free radicals (33).

I am going to start using it and wear sunscreen everytime I go out (I am 16). You should be using sunscreen anyways if you want to age better.

That is consuming vit c. Applying vit c serum increases sun sensitivity

Can you link to a fucking study? Or it's just your opinion? 'Cause I apply copious amounts of 0.1% tretinoin every day, and if what you're saying is true, then I'm gonna vampiremaxx.

I think I read somewhere that tretinoin actually makes people's skin LESS sensitive to UVA/UVB radiation damage, but I need to find the study when I have time later on.

Vitamin c topical is photo-protective

Dietary vitamin C doesnt do shit lol

You can buy everything from owndoc.shop

Make sure to read both manuals, derminator and microneedling

I was wrong, Its not permanent, but it takes 6 months for your sun to recover. (but why tf would you go off of it ever )
YOu should be ok, its just that vitamin C + dermaneedling is probably a better option if youre not committed to sunscreen forever. YOu only need to wear sunscreen for a 3-5 days after you dermaneedle (once a month )

Are you saying that dermaneedling + vit C is better than tretinoin? 'Cause buddy boyo, tretinoin to me is a miracle substance, my skin is not on another level, but another planet. My skin has become so tight and my eyelids folds are reducing that much that my eyes are getting the famous hunter eyes shape.

Tretinoin goes straight to my S-class hero list of compounds. This is my personal special list where only substances so effective that can kill you, are allowed. For example like DNP for fat loss.

Dont know if its worth it, if your skin looks fine already probably not
