Adapalene is type of retinoid cream.

You should apply it in night time.
Retinoids are effective in reducing pigmentation and scars.
You can use it for acne/scars/pigmentation.

Aloe vera moisturizer is good for use.Dont apply excess of it on face.
Continue using neutrogena sunscreen regularly as retinoids cause photosensitivity.

If you have any further explanation feel free to ask.

Hi again,

SPF of 50 is good for India and florida.
Any sunscreen with SPF 50 is good enough.

Melaglow and adapalene are good. You can carry them with you with doctors prescription.Adaferin is available in US also.

Hope this helps.
