How to use - Retinol


Use our Dermaworks’ high strength 2.5% Retinol Serum every night.

Only use retinol at night, as it is less effective when exposed to sunlight. Retinol does all its work while you are asleep, so we recommend applying to a clean, make-up free face before going to bed. 

After cleansing, apply a few drops in to your palm and gently massage into the face, neck, décolletage and hands. Job done!

Retinol increases cell turnover. This may initially result in some flaking skin and/or slight redness. This is perfectly normal and should quickly return to normal after a few days.

If you are new to retinol and you find that your skin is a little sensitive, simply reduce the frequency of treatment to every two or three nights, gradually increasing to every night, once your skin has adjusted.

For best results, allow the serum to absorb then apply Dermaworks' Hyaluronic Acid Serum followed by your favourite moisturiser.
