An effective retinol blend that reduces the appearance of uneven skin tone and age spots, and provides antioxidant protection for a brighter skin tone.

Retinol's anticipated reactions such as redness, flaking, dryness or tightness are signs that a product is working. To manage reactions, start with 2-3 applications per week, then gradually increase to daily usage. Anticipated reactions will significantly diminish after tolerance is established and skin health has been restored. 

Feel free to call us or book a virtual consultation to learn how to start using retinol and manage reactions.
