Anyway, some people love that stuff, others have had rebound darkening like I've experienced. Personally, I wish I never would have used it. The marks really weren't that bad to begin with and I've only made them worse.
interesting...did you use sunscreen? i'm diligent about that.

You absolutely have to use sun protection when using Retin-A-containing products (Tri-Luma contains Retin-A), because of the risk of sun damage. I don't use much sunscreen, but I protect my face from the sun every moment I'm outside, with hats, with finding shade, with mineral makeup which has natural sunscreen properties. I can't stress sun protection enough.
