Topical retinols have extensively been used by dermatologists to help combat and reverse the visual effects of aging, such as wrinkles, laxity, and discoloration. Retinols, because they accelerate cell turnover, can also improve blemishes and the appearance of pores. The retinol molecule is highly-sensitive and vulnerable to breakdown if not properly protected. Retinol 1.0 employs an optimized delivery system and protective packaging to ensure maximum stability and efficacy of pure retinol. This retinol face cream works with skin’s natural lipid structure to promote optimal absorption.
How to Use SkinCeuticals Retinol 1.0:
Retinol is a multi-dimensional product that improves fine lines and wrinkles, lightens brown spots, and refines tone and texture. It plays an essential role in a skincare regimen. In the evening, apply a pea size amount to clean dry skin, avoiding the eye area. Allow product to absorb before applying other skincare products. Limit initial use to once or twice a week, gradually increasing frequency to every other night, then every night as tolerated. It is recommended for new users to start with a Retinol 0.3 to establish skin tolerance.
Retinol may increase photosensitivity. Always use a high-protection, broad spectrum sunscreen when using this product.
As a precaution, retinol face creams should not be used by pregnant women or women who intend to become pregnant in the near future. Though there are no reports of topical retinol having any negative effect on fetal development, always consult a physician.
