Tips for Using Retinol
Retinol is a powerful product that everyone should have in their anti-aging arsenal. Our Retinol Skin Conditioner is one of our best-sellers due to the incredible results it yields. When you use it in conjunction with facial exercises, your skin will look five years younger in a matter of weeks.
Retinol is a topical vitamin A derivative that slows down the signs of aging like nothing else. It speeds up cell turnover, exfoliates dead skin and boosts collagen production. The result is a brighter complexion, firmer skin and the reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Retinol also diminishes hyperpigmentation, unclogs pores and diminishes breakouts.
Here are tips for using retinol to maximize its effectiveness:
1. Use a Gentle Product
Incorporate retinol into your regimen with a gentle product like my Retinol Skin Conditioner. Prescription products can be too harsh—they can exacerbate the skin and cause redness or rosacea.
2. Start Slowly
When you first begin using retinol, start by using it every other night for the first week. On the second week, use it two consecutive nights and then skip the third. On the third week, your skin should be ready for nightly use.
3. Let Skin Dry Before Applying
Water can counteract the effectiveness of retinol and render it useless. Be sure to wait approximately 20 minutes after washing your skin to apply retinol products.
4. Wear Sunscreen
I shouldn’t even have to mention this, since you all should be using sunscreen EVERY SINGLE DAY! Retinol makes your skin more sensitive to the sun’s dangerous UV rays and sunlight renders it ineffective. Be sure to protect your skin and your investment by applying sunscreen daily—and re-applying it throughout the day.
5. Use it All Over
Retinol can be used all over the body to keep skin looking fresh and supple. Apply it to your hands to attack sun spots and creases, to your arms and legs to combat crepey skin and to your stomach to firm and tighten.
