Retinol and its Importance

Retinol is an exceptional active ingredient in skin care. Stimulates collagen production, reduces wrinkles, improves texture and corrects sun damage. But we must be careful to avoid side effects.

What type of Retinol to use

It is important to choose the type of retinol according to your skin type. If your skin is sensitive or has rosacea, it is advisable to start with retinyl palmitate, which is gentler and has a very high skin tolerance and is suitable for these skin types. To do this, we recommend starting with our Light enhancer. For any other skin type, you can start with our 0.3% pure retinol.

Where NOT to use Retinol

It is essential to know where retinol should NOT be applied. Avoid applying it to the neck and décolleté, as these areas are prone to inflammation. If you want to apply a retinoid in that area, you can opt for La Luz, which is specially formulated for sensitive skin or rosacea, and is suitable for the neck and décolleté.

Also, never use retinol around the eyes, as retinol migrates. This means that, if you apply it to other areas of the face, it will also have a very beneficial effect on crow's feet, wrinkles and expression lines around the face and it will do so safely. However, if you deliberately apply it around the eyes, be aware that it will migrate to the eye area, which could cause irritation. It is important to keep retinol away from this delicate area.

With great power comes great responsibility, introduce retinol in a planned and safe way.

Weeks 1 and 2: Gradual Introduction

Start by applying retinol only at night, 1 night on, 2 nights off, 4 drops, avoid the eye area and apply La Luz on the neck and décolleté.

Weeks 3 and 4: Increase Frequency

Continue applying it at night, increasing to every other night. Monitor for any irritation and be patient.

Starting Week 5: Retinol Nights

Starting from the fifth week, you can use it every night if your skin tolerates it well. Keep applying the same amount.

Retinol is a powerful active ingredient that can transform your skin if used carefully. Follow this gradual guide to reap its benefits without side effects. Start your journey to radiant, rejuvenated skin with retinol!
