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!
