Dear Sir! There are no side effects of using Retino cream. But you should take few precautions. 1. Use a good sunscreen with minimum 30 SPF daily in morning and afternoon as retino tends to make the skin sensitive to sun. 2. Apply retino cream in small amount and only once at night time. 3. Preferably use a moisturising cream like Cetaphil moisturiser first and then apply retino cream over that. This will prevent any irritation due to retino cream. Thank you!
