Retinol is one of the most extensively researched and proven skincare ingredients available today. It is a derivative of vitamin A that promotes the skin’s natural exfoliation process, in turn improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration, uneven skin texture and pores, as well as blemishes. It’s not a one-size-fits-all ingredient, and it’s important to give your skin the proper concentration—and apply it correctly—to optimize improvement and overall results.
SkinCeuticals high-concentration retinol cream is available in three strengths and ideal for most skin types with visible aging concerns. Enhanced with the latest stabilization and delivery technologies to provide maximum efficacy, these retinol creams improve the appearance of skin with minimum sensitization. Retinol 0.3, Retinol 0.5 and Retinol 1.0 all feature an advanced encapsulation system and a soothing complex of bisabolol and boswellia serrata extract, but the key for maximum results with minimal side effects is starting slowly. Those new to this ingredient should begin by applying Retinol 0.3 once or twice a week before increasing frequency of use as the skin demonstrates tolerance.
