The Autumn and Winter months are a great time of year to refresh and repair the skin after all the summer sunshine and fun. Retinol has an accumulative affect on the skin boosting luminosity, skin texture and improving skin tone.
"A clinical-strength, customisable nighttime Retinol treatment cream that accelerates skin renewal and reduces the appearance of skin ageing. It is designed for users who desire a more enhanced performing Retinol product for their more resistant skin. The 1% formulation is much stronger than the 0.5%, and is intended for advanced Retinol users." Dermalogica
This advanced treatment product targets fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation, and uneven skin tone through microencapsulated Retinol, Vitamin C and powerful peptides.
Overnight Retinol Repair comes with a buffing cream to gently introduce the Retinol to the skin and help the skin build up Retinoid receptors enabling it to be used on its own. This is an upgrade from the Overnight Retinol Repair .5% so the acclimation process must begin again as this is a clinical strength Retinol product.
Introduce it gently to the skin by using alternate nights if the skin is more sensitive with the 1:3 ratio building up a quarter more Retinol every two weeks. The gradual introduction gets the skin used to the active ingredients and helps users customize the best combination for their skin as not all skins can tolerate the 1% Retinol on its own, so the Overnight Retinol Repair can be mixed with a moisturizer.
Designed for advanced signs of ageing with lines, pigmentation and wrinkles found on more mature skins. It is designed to help plump, retexture and brighten the skin. There isn't a copper complex in the 1% retinol formula because all of the power and strength comes from the higher percentage of Retinol. Brazilian Sugar Cane has been added instead helping to smooth, strengthen and hydrate the skin. It also contains powerful peptides and Vitamin C to help rebuild the skins structural fibers, boost collagen production to plump the skin and rehydrate.
Retinol is encapsulated to protect it from being broken down by light and air. Once the microencapsulated Retinol hits the skin it then penetrates into the deeper layers of the skin dermis.
Aftercare is important in maintaining skin health when using a clinical grade treatment. Please avoid exfoliating 3 days before using Overnight Retinol Repair and 3 days after using Retinol based products. It is not recommended during pregnancy. Additional serums should be used in the morning only and not be used directly at the same time because of the strength of these antiageing ingredients. Wear sun protection spf 30 or above daily, and increase moisturisation levels with a richer moisturizer for best results.
