Retin A micro routine question.

I know this might have been asked in the Acne thread (which I am on page 8 of) but I would like to know what is a good routine to use with with product.
I've been reading about the Paula's Choice Toner and Vitamin C serums. I also see sunscreen for your face is very important while using these products. I'm just curious what face wash is recommended as well.
Thanks for any and all suggestions.

My dermatologist recommended I use Neutrogena salicylic acid face wash since my acne was mainly comedonal acne. I use it morning and night, making sure to wait 20 minutes after washing my face to apply the Micro...cause less peeling. Works great for me

Do you use a PC toner? See my derm did not tell me to wait! No wonder my skin peels like crazy. I mean it peeled by where my "frown lines" of my mouth should be so bad they turned red and wouldn't go away for like a week.
I just use Origins a Perfect World W/ white tea face wash since it's gentle. I have that Neutrogena face wash though, it's the one in the orange tube, correct? Maybe I should try that.

No, I don't use the PC toner. I've thought about trying it though because certain pores on my face just stay clogged. I use my extraction tool and then it always gets clogged again within a week or so

I would definitely wait 20 minutes because it does help with the peeling. Oh, but Micro does cause you to peel a lot IMO. I switched to the regular Retin-A a month ago after being on Micro for 8 months...it was the pharmacy's mistake, but I just used it. I notice I peel a lot less on the regular than the Micro and it works the same or better IMO. I couldn't stand the peeling because it never stopped

It is orange one...the Neutrogena soap in the pump. I don't find it irritating but I don't have sensitive skin.

I will definitely give that neutrogena a try I'm down to try anything. I'm hoping I can get my skin cleared up for Vegas.

Good luck, I feel you! It took mine 10 months to be almost all the way clear. There were some rough times the first few months but if you stick with it, definitely worth it!
