Retinol for Skin FAQ
What is retinol?
Retinol is what's known as a retinoid, a skincare ingredient derived from Vitamin A that helps increase skin cell production. Retinoids come in a range of different strengths, and Retinol is a weaker concentration, available over the counter in a variety of products and topicals.
What does retinol do?
Retinol is a multifaceted skincare ingredient, with the ability to improve skin tone, and skin texture, minimize pores, treat dark spots, increase skin firmness, and reduce fine lines & wrinkles by helping to increase collagen production. Retinol benefits contribute to overall healthier-looking skin and a more youthful appearance.
When should you start using retinol?
Retinol is a great ingredient to begin incorporating into your skincare routine from your late twenties onwards. With so many different skin benefits, the integration of retinol into a regular routine can serve as a great preventative treatment. This is especially true if you're looking to utilize retinol for its anti-aging benefits.
How to use retinol?
Retinol should be incorporated into your skincare routine slowly by using products with a lower concentration. Retinol is typically applied as part of a night skincare routine, with products like our Blue Retinol Night Anti-aging Serum with Retinol or Blue Pro-Retinol Multi-Correct Anti-aging Cream with Retinol. You'll gradually increase the frequency of use as your skin becomes more tolerant to the ingredient. Start with application 2-3 times a week, working up to every other night, and then every night if your skin allows it without reaction. The application frequency may vary depending on the product used, which is why it's important to read the suggested application method.
How to avoid and prevent retinol burns?
Retinol burn or "retinol uglies" are a common irritation when starting retinol that affects the top and deeper skin layers. To prevent it, start with lower retinol concentrations, avoid high-dose retinoids (tazarotene, adapalene, tretinoin), and use products with lose retinol concentration like our Blue Retinol Resurfacing Night Serum with 0.25% retinol. Gradually increase dosage and application frequency to avoid skin shock.
Can you use hyaluronic acid with retinol?
Yes, retinol can be combined with hyaluronic acid and many more skincare ingredients! Hyaluronic acid helps reduce retinol's irritating effects by moisturizing the skin, we recommend Biotherm Blue Retinol Resurfacing Night Serum using both ingredients for anti-aging benefits like visibly reducing wrinkles. Niacinamide aids in acne treatment and skin aging while counteracting retinol's side effects, discover our Blue Pro-Retinol Multi-Correct Cream taking advantage of this powerful duo.
