Retinol Commonly Asked Questions

Q) What are the benefits of using Retinol?

  • Improves fine lines, wrinkles, blemishes and uneven skin tone/texture over time.

Q) What’s the difference between drugstore Retinol and the Retinol you offer?

Q) When do I apply Retinol?

  • Only apply at night, as it can make your skin more susceptible to UV rays.

Q) When should I increase the strength of my Retinol?

  • If you have been using a lower strength of Retinol regularly and you feel like your skin is reacting well (minimal to no irritation, redness or peeling) it is recommended to increase the strength.

Q) Who is not a good candidate for Retinol?

  • It is not recommended during pregnancy, breastfeeding or for excessively sensitive skin.
