How does the Skin Recovery Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum differ from the other retinol products Paula’s Choice offers?
Formulated especially for dry, sensitive skin, Skin Recovery Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum is packed with skin-defending antioxidants, restorative plant oils, anti-irritants and retinol. Those with dry, sensitive skin should always begin with lower levels of retinol and see how their skin responds before moving to higher concentrations. The percentage of retinol needed for efficacy is generally between 0.01% and 1%, which is quite a range, but further proof of just how powerful retinol is! All our products with retinol may be used with Skin Recovery Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum or on their own, as each treats skin to a beneficial range of anti-ageing ingredients.
I use a prescription product with retinoids. Since Skin Recovery Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum contains retinol, is it OK to combine them?
We are not aware of any contraindications surrounding the use of prescribed retinoids and retinol and believe this combination is beneficial to skin. Because this question concerns a prescription drug, we recommend consulting your physician and following his or her advice before using Skin Recovery Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum.
Is Skin Recovery Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum suitable for those with rosacea-prone skin?
Research has shown that retinol can reduce inflammation that leads to symptoms of rosacea. The other antioxidants and soothing agents in Skin Recovery Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum will help calm redness and soothe skin as they deliver anti-ageing benefits.
Rich, creamy cleanser that thoroughly removes makeup and debris without stripping skin.
Rich milky toner soothes and replenishes ultra-dry, flaky skin.
Gentle, lotion moisturiser replenishes dry, sensitive skin and protects it from the sun.
