SkinCeutical Retinol 0.5
I am also planning on pampering myself and part of that process is to deeply clean my skin and to apply a pea size of Retinol 0.5 before bedtime. As many of you know, retinol helps to fight the damage on the skin caused by sun exposure, also helps to improve elasticity and to reduce wrinkles. I have been using Retinol 0.5 from SkinCeutical and it is really effective. I have to confess that I had some reaction to the product because I didn't follow the applications instructions correctly. You really have to apply just a pea size of this product. Over applying this product might burn your skin and cause some peeling. Once I understood that less is more, I have noticed a big reduction on the size of my pores and more radiance on my skin. I haven't seen big improvement on my fine lines and wrinkles, but I guess that I have to let the product work for a little longer. Ah, please, please avoid the eye area completely while applying retinol since this can really irritate this sensitive area (ouch!)
So, for those of you who have not try retinol yet, I recommend giving it a try. You can find Retinol 0.5 on their website here or here
For the more experienced with this product, what are your opinions and have you seen good results? I would love to know.
