🛑Skin Redness, is it normal?🛑

Hii! I just wanted to ask about my skin condition. I'm currently on my fifth or sixth week of using differin, and it gets red almost instantly every time I use my skincare products or wash my face, especially in the day. Even after a long time after the application, my face is still red. I'm also using snail mucin to soothe the redness but I think it's ineffective? Is it normal when using differin? What should I do?

Try reducing frequency to 1x a week for 2-3 weeks, apply to dry skin, use sandwich method (moisturizer, Retinoid, moisturizer), use in pm routine only and use spf in the day avoid the snail mucin as it contains a glycolic acid which could further irritate the skin try it anf see what happens…if it persists, stop the Retinoid altogether for a month…work on repairing your skin barrier and then start back but very slowly like suggested above

It's actually depends on some person, but personally i think your differin is the main cause of your redness. Try to stop using it for a while and if there's nothing happened, i suggest you to change skincare?

yes adapalene could irritate sensitive skin so i suggest she observe what's the cause of her redness. if you are normally re even before you used adapelene then i think its not the problem

I think use moisturiser might be more effective than serum

I'm using a moisturizer. But I think it's not enough?

I think it’s normal and should get better after a few months, if it doesn’t try putting on moisturizer before the differin so that it slows down the speed of penetration
