Retinol Facial Serum with Hyaluronic Acid
Formulated with hyaluronic acid, pro-vitamin B5, & green tea extract.
Serums are the key to having beautiful, young, glowing skin! Serums are lightweight moisturizers that penetrate deeper to deliver active ingredients into your skin & that is exactly what this serum does. Since this serum is water-based it helps the active ingredients in the serum better absorb into the skin. Serums will only moisturize to a minimal extent so it is best to pair this serum with a moisturizer.
What makes this serum so unique is that it is formulated with Retinol. Retinol is one of the few ingredients proven to promote skin renewal and enhance collagen production. Retinol can help lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, along with reversing some of the side effects of sun damage. Not only is retinol great for mature skin and preventing aging it is also great for acne because it can unclog pores, prevent pores from clogging in the future, and is said to help reduce the formation of acne scars.
Have never used Retinol?
I recommend starting with my .04% retinol serum then moving up to .1% retinol. This may sound like a small amount but more isn't always better when it comes to retinol. Even the smallest amount of retinol has been proven to do wonders for the skin. Retinol can cause sensitivity to the skin which is another reason why you don't want to use too much. Only those with stubborn skin concerns need a high percentage of retinol.
Directions: Apply 2-3 drops to face ideally in the PM.
Retinoids can make the skin more sensitive to UV radiation. Sun protection is particularly important when using retinoids. Do not use with any other product that may cause sensitivity.
Always do a patch test on hand or arm before applying a new product, especially if you have sensitive skin.
