Our expert says:
Hi ‘Need to Know’, thank you for your question.
There are a number of Vitamin A creams available (Retin-A & Retacnyl) and these can only be obtained on prescription (your GP should be able to prescribe it for you).
Vitamin A has been showed to improve the texture of the skin, reduce the number of pores and their size, and improve the appearance of fine lines. Some people develop a sensitivity to the product and my suggestion is to use it only at night (in the beginning apply it sparingly to the skin every 3rd to 4th night).
