Retinol 0.5 contains .5% pure retinol and is enhanced with the latest stabilization and delivery technologies to provide maximum efficiency. Retinol 0.5 is recommended for more sensitive skin or to help condition skin not acclimated to retinoids as a prerequisite to SkinCeuticals Retinol 1.0.
Our retinol products help stimulate cell regeneration and build collagen to diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots from both photo- and intrinsic- aging. Additionally, they help minimize the appearance of pore size, while correcting blemishes and blotchiness often associated with problematic skin.
If your skin is sensitive to retinol, begin by limiting use to once or twice a week, then gradually increase frequency to every other night, and finally once an evening as tolerated.
Apply a pea-sized amount of Retinol 0.5 to thoroughly cleansed skin in the evening.
Carefully avoid the eyes and the corner of the eyes.
To ensure optimal results, do not use any corrective or moisturizing products the same evening as applying this product.
