Anyone who’s ever used Retin-A is probably familiar with the redness, dryness and peeling that can occur before you start to see improvment. But a new study sheds light on a potential way to minimize these side effects.

In one clinical study, participants applied a cream containing the same active ingredient found in NIA 24, a niacin-based line available through dermatologists, twice a day for four weeks before starting to use Retin-A on a nightly basis. The study showed that pre-treating for one month before Retin-A treatment reduced the side effects associated with Retin-A, without affecting the beneficial results.
