    Worst myth is that more is better. Even MDs (and I am one, but not a dermatologist) argue with me that tret should be daily and that additional exfoliation or rest days are unneeded. Over the pandemic when I really started to think about my skin and develop a routine (pretty haphazard before that) I have learned to listen to my skin and to develop routines adaptable to the season and my skin changes. Tret has been a game changer (but I am glad I started it at 0.025 because even that every third night gave me scary peeling for which LP cica was invaluable–but now after almost two years I am at 0.1 with no irritation 5/7 nights and my skin looks like it did 25 years ago I use gentle exfoliation (mandelic or lactic acid) and a soothing moisturizing overnight mask wed and sat nights. My skin tolerates vitamin c (any kind) well so I use that daily in the morning. Recently I tried a new niacinamide at 10% which was great for a few days and then even water hurt 🤕. But I saw what it was happening. Stopped it. Had three simple barrier support days and gave the 10% niacinamide away. I waited a long time to try 5% again, but miraculously 5% was still fine. There is a sweet spot for most products and we need to find it. Now that I am up to 0.1 tret, I plan to see if my gains continue if I slowly reduce from 5/7 days to 1/3 long run, since I plan to continue tret forever. Thanks for your always helpful discussions.

    Good advice! I’m 30 and don’t take seriously care about my skin. But I know that I should! I try to find and use only natural products. For example, I regularly make a massage with wood gua sha and coconut oil, make natural masks with honey and sour cream, etc. But of course, I can’t do without moisturizers.

    This is important to realize that skincare is more than just providing care for our present skin condition: cleaning, nourishing, moisturizing, and firming it. And it also includes a selection of high-quality cosmetic products and particular facial exercises, which have recently gained popularity.
