what is retinol?

Pure retinol, a retinoid and form of Vitamin A, is hands down the industry’s gold standard ingredient for reversing the signs of skin aging. Retinol can benefit a multitude of skin conditions but is most recommended for aging skin to reduce the appearance of fine lines and dark spots for firmer, smoother, and more even-toned skin. 

Retinol encourages skin cell turnover, promoting skin renewal and smoothing damage from aging. It effectively addresses discoloration, reduces collagen breakdown caused by sun exposure, and stimulates collagen production for healthier skin overall.

  • Enhanced skin resilience: Formulated with a 3.5% Retinoid Complex and nourishing Squalane, Dynamic Skin Retinol Serum supports skin resilience.

how to use

  • After cleansing and drying your skin, apply a small amount of Dynamic Skin Retinol Serum evenly over your entire face. Avoid getting it into your eyes.
  • For best results, use the serum nightly before going to bed, allowing it to work overnight.
  • Monitor your skin’s response. If you experience dryness or redness, reduce the application frequency to every other night or as needed. Incorporating hydrating ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid into your skin care routine can also help to minimize irritation. 
  • During the day, protect your skin from the sun by wearing sunscreen with a suitable SPF like Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF50  to prevent UV damage.
  • Consistently follow these steps to maintain a healthy skin care routine and maximize the benefits of retinol.
