If your skin reacts too strongly (resulting in red, scaly or dry skin) use Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment less frequently or mix one pump of Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment with your favourite Paula's Choice serum, Resist Moisture Renewal Oil Booster or night cream. If the skin continues to react, stop using the product. Protect skin daily with a moisturiser containing a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 30 or greater.
The Resist 1% Retinol Booster and Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment have many similarities. Both of these contain 1% retinol, peptides, a large amount of antioxidants and substances that prevent skin irritation. The difference is mainly in texture, usage and skin type (although they are both suitable for all skin types).
Resist 1% Retinol Booster has a thinner, fluid texture, so it can be easily mixed with your favourite serum or night cream. It is ideal for normal to oily and breakout-prone skin. It is also a great choice if you are looking for a higher concentration of retinol. You can blend Resist 1% Retinol Booster with your serum or night cream for a milder effect or more frequent use.
Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment has a creamy lotion texture that is ideal for normal to dry skin. It is an intensive treatment with a high concentration of retinol. This product is suitable for when you are used to retinol treatments, and are looking for more powerful results. It is best to add this product to your skincare routine gradually - initially no more than every other day.
You can combine the Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment with any other skincare product. If you combine the product with ‘active’ products such as AHAs, BHAs, products for acne-prone skin, products with retinol or with prescription retinoids, it is important that you monitor how your skin reacts, and then adapt the usage accordingly.
The percentage of retinol in Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment is comparable to the strength of some prescription retinoids (which must not be used during pregnancy or breastfeeding). Because of the relationship between retinol (cosmetic variant of vitamin A) and retinoids, we advise you not to use this product if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, unless your doctor has given explicit permission. Although there is no direct evidence that cosmetic retinol can be harmful, we’d prefer to err on the side of caution.
