New to Retinol and unsure where to begin?
Retinol works best when added gradually to an existing night-time routine. The golden rule “go low and go slow” is a great one to apply with Retinol to achieve maximum results with minimum downtime. Start with a lower percentage formula 1-2 evenings a week, gradually building to alternate evenings once your skin is responding well. You can then think about increasing the percentage over time.
Vitamin A Serum
Vitamin A Serum contains 0.5% Retinol which is time-released while you sleep, improving delivery into the skin for better efficacy. This creamy nourishing serum also boasts skin supporting lipids like calming Evening Primrose Oil and antioxidant Tomato Fruit Extract, making it ideal for those with a more delicate or potentially reactive skin, or those new to Vitamin A.
Beauty Sleep Power Peel
Beauty Sleep Power Peel contains 0.5% Retinol combined with dual exfoliating ingredients Glycolic Acid and Papaya Enzyme, to proactively speed up the skin’s metabolism for smoother, firmer skin and a brighter, more even tone. Those new to Retinol and accelerating acids may like to apply this one as a 5-10 minute wash off mask once a week to help build tolerance. Familiar with Retinol and looking to supercharge your regime? Use it at night once or twice a week as a sleep-in power peel.
Liquid Gold Midnight Reboot Serum
Liquid Gold Midnight Reboot Serum combines 1% Granactive Retinoid with powerful age-defying skin revitaliser Glycolic Acid in an industry first, overnight treatment. A new era form of Vitamin A, Granactive Retinoid acts similarly to a prescription Retinoid without the associated downtime. Boosted with powerful antioxidants and skin plumping Tripeptide-5, apply Midnight Reboot Serum on alternate evenings under your preferred night cream for a visibly firmer, more even complexion with vastly increased suppleness upon waking.
If you’re completely new to Retinol, bear in mind that it’s important to introduce products gradually as the skin’s metabolism takes time to speed up and can exhibit some initial signs of resistance including temporary flaking, mild breakouts, or a drying effect. This is completely normal and should settle after the skin has adjusted.
