Where can I get a retinoid cream?

hey.. can you pls tell me where can i get a retinoid cream , or do i hav to go to a doctor to prescribe me one.

You don’t have to go to a doctor anymore to get a decent one unless you really need one of the strongest ones which many people do not.  The exception is acne that’s more severe (think cysts and scars) and patients who have severe sun damage, precancerous lesions and skin cancers.  Then it’s important to see your dermatologist.   Here’s a link to a good non prescription retinoid and you can find other examples as well.   More on retinoids.    Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
