Reduce the appearance of fine lines, photo damage and skin ageing with The Ordinary Retinol 1% in Squalane, now available at Face the Future Advanced Skin Clinic and Online Shop.
Retinol is a powerhouse ingredient in the fight against ageing. The strength of the Retinol in the product indicates the level of irritation to be experienced. However small the percentage, Retinol will always cause irritation to the skin, but as skin builds up tolerance, the benefits can outweigh the associated negatives. Fine lines are reduced, the appearance of photo damage is diminished and general skin ageing is improved.
For those with concerns about using Retinol, it is recommended to start with the smallest percentage and adjust to higher strengths as skin builds up its tolerance.
Benefits of The Ordinary Retinol 1% in Squalane:
- Reduces the appearance of fine lines, photo damage and general skin ageing
- High strength Retinol with very high irritation
- Skin will need to have built up tolerance to Retinol prior to using this product
How to use:
Apply a small amount to face in the PM as part of your skincare regimen, after water serums but before heavier treatments. Do not use with other Retinol treatments. Avoid sun exposure and ensure an SPF is worn. Store in a cool, dry place.
