Additional information

Retinol and Sunscreen

(From the manufacturer) Use a sunscreen and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week following. (From CVDerm) Because Retinol is photosensitizing (which means your skin may experience sun damage faster that what you are use to), we recommend anyone using a Retinol product to also use a broad-spectrum sunblock as part of your daily skincare regime. Reapply sunblock throughout the day as needed.

How to Use

(From the manufacturer) WHEN TO APPLY: In the evening after cleansing and toning and before applying your moisturizer. If a retinol product has never been used before, begin twice a week 2-3 days apart, increasing frequency slowly until daily use is tolerated. WHERE TO APPLY: Face (neck and chest if desired)

Who is this for?

This product is appropriate for all skin types, but skin must be pre-conditioned in order to minimize any skin irritation that may be experienced from the use of Retinol.

NOT RECOMMENDED FOR PREGNANT WOMEN. As a precaution, retinol products 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, some problems have been reported with ingested retinoic acid.
