How To Use
Avoiding eye area, apply 3-4 pumps to clean skin once a day, in the evening or as directed by your physician
Because of its exfoliative properties, it is sometimes normal for skin to peel when starting to use Retinol for the first time. It is advisable to start with the lower Retinol concentration and increase to the higher concentration as skin tolerates.
Can reduce frequency of use to alternate days if peeling is intolerable.
Though these Retinol serums are moisturizing, if skin feels too tight, wait 5 to 10 minutes after application, then apply a moisturizer.
