Apply a small amount of Dr Sebagh Retinol Night Repair to perfectly cleansed skin.
Do not mix with Pure Vitamin C Powder Cream (use this as part of your morning routine, and apply your retinol at night).
If your skin is sensitive or you have not used retinol before, Dr Sebagh recommends using Retinol Night Repair twice a week to begin with, gradually increasing the frequency of use as your skin’s tolerance develops. This product can be used up to five times a week. As retinol makes skin more sensitive to light, it is recommended to protect the skin with an SPF the morning after use. A small amount of skin shedding and redness may occur to begin with and is normal. If peeling continues, reduce the frequency.
RETINOL: (Vitamin A) increases skin firmness, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improves skin tone, reduces age spots and refines skin texture. It has an exfoliating effect on the epidermis, eliminating dead cells, stimulating cell renewal and boosting radiance. Helps to fight free radicals (especially those induced by UV rays) and acts on the regulation of melanocytes—the cells that pigment the skin causing brown spots. It is also anti-inflammatory.
Retinol increases epidermal proliferation and stimulates the production of collagen, elastin and fibronectin. It increases the level of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) and the number of Langerhans cells, and decreases the activity of collagenase and gelatinase (MMPs), helping to decrease collagen breakdown. By stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, the ‘structuring’ elements of the skin, retinol helps to improve firmness and elasticity, while boosting its hyaluronic acid content.
