But when you’re on third gear, you would wish to slow down acnes and damage caused by it. Tretinoin cream proves to be an absolute blessing as it takes away all of your acnes and treats sunburned skin. Help your skin shine clearer by using Tretinoin for wrinkles, the appearance of surface wrinkles, dark spots, and fine lines. It may sound counterproductive, but tretinoin functions by irritating your skin. It paces up the lifecycle of your skin cells, bringing them back to life.
