The Effect Of A Controlled Daily Skin Care Regimen On Retinoic Acid Tolerance
Sun-damaged skin, caused by chronic exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light, is characterized by features such as wrinkling, uneven skin color, roughness and brown spots. An effective treatment for sun-damage that is commonly prescribed is topical retinoic acid (RA). However, the major drawback of topical RA use has been frequently observed irritation characterized by redness, dry skin and severe itching. In this study, we examine whether a daily skin care regimen comprised of an ultra mild cleanser and an effective moisturizer can help improve tolerance to RA treatment.

However, the major drawback of topical retinoic acid use has been frequently observed irritation characterized by redness, dry skin and severe itching. In this study, we examine whether a daily skin care regimen comprised of an ultra mild cleanser and an effective moisturizer can help improve tolerance to retinoid treatment.
Subjects for whom retinoid treatment is indicated for sun-damage will be recruited into the study. The retinoid intolerance will be established via prior history (detailed questionnaire) and a 2-week retinoid treatment (Tazarotene 0.1% cream) phase followed by clinical evaluation and determination of retinoid intolerance.
Subjects that exhibit retinoid intolerance will continue with the study. Approximately 30 subjects will be put on a controlled daily skin care regimen during the remainder of the study period while the rest of the subjects will continue their normal skin care habits. The controlled skin care regimen will consist of facial cleansing with a Dove ultra mild emollient cleanser and application of Dove facial moisturizer, used as normal. During this period, subjects will be evaluated to determine reduction of retinoid intolerance symptoms.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
The use of fragrances and essences from plants to affect or alter a person's mood or behavior and to facilitate physical, mental, and emotional well-being. The chemicals comprising essential oils in plants has a host of therapeutic properties and has been used historically in Africa, Asia, and India. Its greatest application is in the field of alternative medicine. (From Random House Unabridged Dictionary, 2d ed; from Dr. Atiba Vheir, Dove Center, Washington, D.C.)
Anterior midline brain, cranial, and facial malformations resulting from the failure of the embryonic prosencephalon to undergo segmentation and cleavage. Alobar prosencephaly is the most severe form and features anophthalmia; cyclopia; severe MENTAL RETARDATION; CLEFT LIP; CLEFT PALATE; SEIZURES; and microcephaly. Semilobar holoprosencepaly is characterized by hypotelorism, microphthalmia, coloboma, nasal malformations, and variable degrees of mental retardation. Lobar holoprosencephaly is associated with mild (or absent) facial malformations and intellectual abilities that range from mild mental retardation to normal. Holoprosencephaly is associated with CHROMOSOME ABNORMALITIES.
Severe or complete loss of facial muscle motor function. This condition may result from central or peripheral lesions. Damage to CNS motor pathways from the cerebral cortex to the facial nuclei in the pons leads to facial weakness that generally spares the forehead muscles. FACIAL NERVE DISEASES generally results in generalized hemifacial weakness. NEUROMUSCULAR JUNCTION DISEASES and MUSCULAR DISEASES may also cause facial paralysis or paresis.
Pain in the facial region including orofacial pain and craniofacial pain. Associated conditions include local inflammatory and neoplastic disorders and neuralgic syndromes involving the trigeminal, facial, and glossopharyngeal nerves. Conditions which feature recurrent or persistent facial pain as the primary manifestation of disease are referred to as FACIAL PAIN SYNDROMES.
The 7th cranial nerve. The facial nerve has two parts, the larger motor root which may be called the facial nerve proper, and the smaller intermediate or sensory root. Together they provide efferent innervation to the muscles of facial expression and to the lacrimal and salivary glands, and convey afferent information for taste from the anterior two-thirds of the tongue and for touch from the external ear.
