How do I use the Ageless Overnight Retinol Powerbalm?
Retinol should only be used at night as an overnight treatment. After cleansing and toning, apply between two to three pumps to clean skin and allow it to absorb. If you have dry skin, follow with Advanced Restoring Night Cream. Discontinue use three to five days prior to waxing and seven days before intense sun exposure and skin resurfacing treatments. Alternatively, Ageless Overnight Retinol Powerbalm can be buffered with Advanced Restoring Night Cream to dilute strength and allow gradual introduction to retinol.
CAUTION: Due to the active nature of Retinol in this product, it is recommended that it is not used for at least 5 days prior to sun exposure, waxing or advanced exfoliating/peeling treatments. For External use only. Keep out of reach of children. Avoid contact with the eyes (incase of contact rinse thoroughly with water)
Always wear a daily day cream with SPF when using this product as your skin can be more sensitive to sun exposure when using retinol.
How does retinol work?
Retinol is a gold standard ingredient in skincare because it alters the behaviour of skin cells, making them act in a more youthful manner including promoting the rate of healthy skin cell renewal. It is a form of Vitamin A, an ingredient that stimulates cell renewal whilst refining pores, firming skin and increasing skin hydration. Retinol will also improve skin elasticity and actively reduce pigmentation to improve skin tone.
Is it safe to use retinol whilst pregnant?
Due to the concentration of Retinol, this product is not safe for use during pregnancy or while breast feeding.
Can I start using retinol on my skin if I am in my 20’s?
As your skin cells should be renewing at a healthy level in your 20's, it is less likely that you need retinol in your skincare routine. However, we understand that lifestyle can have a huge impact on your skin or that you may wish to prevent premature ageing. If this is the case, then you would benefit by introducing retinol into your skincare routine 2-3 times per week to maintain a younger-looking complexion.
Can I use any exfoliating products on the same day as retinol?
No, we do not advise the use of other skin resurfacing products on the same day that you plan to use your Overnight Retinol Powerbalm. If you wish to use any other exfoliating products such as our Enzyme Peel or Facial Exfoliator, you should discontinue your Retinol Powerbalm two to three beforehand.
Why is SKINICIAN’s pure retinol better than others?
The SKINICIAN Overnight Retinol Powerbalm is formulated with pure retinol which has been clinically proven to be highly effective at targeting visible signs of ageing. Not all products are formulated with pure retinol and instead can contain a combination of milder, less effective retinoids that may not provide the same results.
Will retinol help acne?
Yes! If you suffer from either inflammatory or non-inflammatory acne, retinol is a great ingredient to add to your skincare regime. Retinol will help to unclog pores by increasing cell turnover and enable the skin to repair itself. It will also help to reduce post-inflammatory pigmentation from breakouts and reduce scarring from previous acne breakouts.
