Tretinoin is the main active ingredient in The Night Cream.
Tretinoin works by increasing the speed of your skin cell turnover to bring new skin to the surface, which can sometimes lead to what is known as a “purge period”. During this time you may experience breakouts that can last anywhere from 2 -6 weeks. It’s important to remember that acne triggered while using tretinoin would have developed on its own regardless and that tretinoin is simply speeding up the process. This side effect can be managed by easing slowly into the treatment, avoiding direct sunlight, and staying consistent with use.
