A Beginner’s Guide to Retinol: What are its main benefits?




Q: What makes Q+A Retinol Facial Serum stand out from the rest?A: Excellent question! Our Retinol Facial Serum is an effective and well-tolerated blend of retinol and skin-loving ingredients designed to combat signs of aging, improve skin texture, and promote a radiant complexion. With its powerful formula, it’s a game-changer in the world of anti-aging skincare.

Q: How does retinol benefit the skin?

A: Retinol, a derivative of Vitamin A, is known for its ability to boost collagen production, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, even out skin tone, and unclog pores. This powerhouse ingredient is a must-have in any effective anti-aging skincare regimen, second only to sun protection in its effect of minimizing premature aging.

Q: How should I incorporate the Retinol Serum into my daily skincare routine?

A: Start by cleansing your face, then apply the Retinol Serum to your face and neck, avoiding the eye area. Allow your skin to fully absorb the serum and follow up with a moisturizer to seal in hydration. Finish with a sunscreen of at least SPF 30 to protect your skin from sun damage. Begin by using the serum a few times a week in the evening and gradually increase the frequency as your skin adjusts.

Avoid using Retinol with AHA’s, Benzoyl Peroxide and other Retinol formulations. If you love our Vitamin C Brightening Serum, we recommend using Vitamin C during the day, and Retinol at night instead of adding them onto the same routine.

Q: Are there any precautions I should take when using retinol?

A: Yes, it’s essential to perform a patch test before applying the serum to your face to ensure there are no adverse reactions. As retinol may increase skin sensitivity to the sun, so always finish your skincare routine with a broad-spectrum sunscreen during the day.

Retinol is known to cause mild skin peeling or shedding when first used and this is known as the retinol purge. Don’t panic if this happens, as it is a sign that the product is working! But if your skin becomes uncomfortable or irritated, it may be best to reduce its use to avoid causing damage to your skin. If your skin is particularly sensitive and you feel like Retinol isn’t for you, why not go for our anti-aging Peptide Facial Serum as a more gentle alternative?

Q: Why should I choose Q+A Retinol Facial Serum for my anti-aging needs?

A: Our Retinol Serum is a carefully formulated powerhouse that delivers visible results in addressing multiple signs of aging. An independent user trial with 50 participants over an 8-week period identified that:

  • 94% of participants felt their skin looked brighter and more radiant
  • 94% of participants found Q+A Retinol Facial Serum less drying than other retinol products
