Retinol and Retinoids
If you want to try retinol for the first time, this is a great place to start. Retinol stimulates the growth of new collagen – for firmer, smoother skin, fewer wrinkles, reduced pigmentation and more even skin tone. It can also make older skin renew itself more quickly, balance oil production and decongest pores.
- The ‘3’ of 3TR shows it contains 0.3% pure retinol, the optimum level for improvements in the skin with minimal irritation. The TR stands for Time Release – the formula releases the retinol gradually overnight, making it easier to tolerate than if it were all dumped into your skin at once.
- It feels slightly oily, as it’s in a jojoba oil base but it won’t upset oily skin because jojoba oil is really light and hydrating.
Use just a couple of drops at night – twice a week for two weeks, then three times a week for three weeks, so your skin can acclimatise to it without upset. This is a step-up system, so once your skin has acclimatised to this – maybe after a couple of bottles worth – and become ‘retinized’, you can move onto the Retinol 6TR, which is a bit stronger, for more pronounced results.
