When entering the skincare field, the first thing I wanted to do was improve my skincare regimen. My primary focus was to incorporate medical grade products to maintain healthy, strong skin with anti-aging properties. Retinol was the answer.
After one application of Retinol (ZO Retamax); the skin on my face peeled for 4 days. Normal? YES, although this varies depending on your skin. Sometimes the peeling occurs after more than one application. This is exactly what one should see-the exfoliation of dead skin and the pink new skin coming to the surface. Now after using Retinol consistently, my skin has built a tolerance and although does not have the extreme peeling side effects, the product is still working at the same efficacy. My skin looks and feels healthier…
Here are the most commonly asked questions I receive from patients regarding Retinol:
Is Peeling Normal? Does it stop?
Is it safe to use?
What are the benefits?
