differin & tanning

Question: i accidentally went tanning with differin on my face, and now i have what looks like to be bleached or white spots. its been a few months and they haven't gone away. is my skin permanently ruined?

It’s possible that it is. Differin, a topical retinoid, is commonly used to treat areas of hyperpigmentation, therefore it’s likely your skin is permanently damaged. For more information I suggest you speak with a dermatologist in your local area so that they may have a visual and treat if possible.
