If your dog is as cool as my canine daughter, Thandi, then M-Net Movies wants him or her to be an #Ambassadoggy and the face of channel 105.  We’re all aware that every dog has a personality that is unique and often very entertaining.

Tretinoin is far more potent than retinol but carries a higher risk of irritation. When doctors discuss “prescription retinol”, they’re referring to various forms of vitamin A that can only be used in prescription medications.
