How do I use the Ageless Overnight Retinol Powerbalm Level 2?
Use each night after thorough cleansing and toning. Take 2-3 pumps and apply in circular movements to the face and neck, avoiding the delicate eye area, then follow with your SKINICAN night time moisturiser.
We recommend starting with theAgeless Overnight Retinol Powerbalm Level 1 and progressing gradually up to Level 2. This allows your skin to become accustomed to the retinol, reducing the risk of skin irritation. Once your skin is comfortable with LEVEL 1 Overnight Ageless Retinol Powerbalm you can then progress to Level 2.

I’ve never used a Retinol product before can I use this?
We do advise that you start your retinol journey withAgeless Overnight Retinol Powerbalm Level 1. However, if you have a very tolerant skin or a thicker skin then you may be able to start with Ageless Overnight Retinol Powerbalm Level 2. It is very important that Retinol is introduced to the skin slowly to reduce the risk of irritation.
Will Retinol help to reduce pigmentation?
Pigmentation can be difficult to treat as there can be a number of reasons why someone can be experiencing pigmentation. As Retinol has been clinically proven to reduce pigmentation, introducing the Ageless Overnight Retinol Powerbalm will be of benefit. We would also advise that you try to avoid anything that triggers your pigmentation, that you stay out of the sun and you protect your skin daily with anSPF. For quicker results we suggest teaming your Ageless Overnight Retinol Powerbalm with a professional SKINICIAN Ageless AHA Lactic Acid at one of ourSKINICIAN salons.
Can I use this during pregnancy?
Due to the concentration of Retinol, this product is not safe for use during pregnancy or while breast feeding.
My skin cannot tolerate a lot of Retinol. Should I use this product?
If you cannot tolerate a lot of Retinol, we would advise that you use ourAgeless Overnight Retinol Powebalm Level 1 as this contains 0.1% Retinol. If your skin then becomes used to this level of Retinol after using one full bottle, only then would we suggest progressing to our Level 2.
