Retinol Resurfacing Serum 0.5 is a pure potent retinol serum that makes the skin plumper, dramatically improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, blemishes and skin texture, while evening skin tone. Retinols boost the amount of collagen that your body makes.
Retinol-based products may make the top layer of your skin dry and flaky. It’s best to apply it at night and wear moisturizer and sunscreen the next morning. Ask your dermatologist about alternatives.
Cutting-edge microencapsulated retinol allows for gradual timed release overnight. By encapsulating the retinol and adding soothing and hydrating ingredients like niacinamide, honey and sodium hyaluronate, maximal results can be achieved in comfort.
ALTERNATIVES TO RETINOL:
- Alphahydroxy acid (AlumierMD Bright & Clear Solution, AHA Renewal Serum)
- Lactic acid (AlumierMD Enzymatic Peel), or any exfoliation serum, since retinols are a resurfacing serum.
HOW POTENT SHOULD YOUR RETINOL BE?:
If you have never used a retinol then start with the 0.25% so that the body can build resiliency to the serums. Over time you may be able to increase the potency. Please check with your skincare professional before choosing a potency over 0.25%.
HOW ARE ALUMIERMD RETINOLS DIFFERENT FROM OTHER RETINOLS ON THE MARKET?
The AlumierMD Retinol Resurfacing Serums are microencapsulated. This important delivery method allows the ingredients to be introduced into the skin in a controlled way over time. With other formats of retinols your skin is immediately and suddenly exposed to the full intensity of the retinol resulting in increased inflammation and pain.
Twist pump left to open and right to close. Apply 1-2 pumps to face and neck after cleansing at night. Follow with your favorite AlumierMD moisturizer. If you are not currently using a retinol product, begin using once or twice a week and gradually increase frequency to nightly as your skin adjusts.
