“The gold standard of anti-ageing, retinol is a cell communicator that helps to ‘wake up’ up to 80% of the different cells within the skin and helps them to behave like younger, fresher healthier versions of themselves! Treating acne and ageing, this product can cause peeling and redness in the skin. This usually occurs 2-3 days post application and is normal. I recommend using on the first day, waiting until day 3 and if there is no peeling then apply again. Don’t use two or three nights in a row as day three will present a stronger irritant reaction. You can use this over the top of a hyaluronic acid-based serum for a better tolerance.
Retinol is photo sensitising so don’t forget your antioxidant serum and SPF5 to avoid sun damage and pigmentation.”
