Will Retinoid Creams Damage My Eyes?
Will retinoid creams damage my eyes? (or dry them out?)
This is a common question that people ask their dermatologists. I recently collaborated with Instagram Dermatology influencers @dermomtology and @derm.talk to help answer this question. I thought it was such an important topic that I wanted to feature it in a blog post. Check out their recent Instagram posts “Debunking retinoid myths with science” to learn more about retinoids (from a detailed dermatology perspective).
In addition to including some slides from their series, here I go deeper to answer the questions:
What are the meibomian glands?
What is Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD)?
Are there ingredients I should avoid in the eye area?
How can I care for my eyes? ❤️
This is such an important topic and I’m only touching the surface of it. Check out the slides below and drop me a line if you have further questions!
