A Guide to Retinol: Everything You've Always Wanted to Know

Retinol: you've heard all about why you should include retinol products in your skincare regimen. However, if you're like most people, you're just not sure which products to choose.

Luckily, we've got you covered. Whether you wish to reverse the signs of ageing or boost your natural glow, here are some Cosmedix products to try. Please note, if you're new to retinol products, begin using it once a week and work up to more frequent use. This will allow your skin to tolerate more frequent use.


Serum 16 Retinol Complex

If you want the closest thing to prescription-strength retinol, Serum 16 is it. This potent retinol contains 16% LG-Retinex complex, which is a blend of Retinol, Retinaldehyde, and Glycosaminoglycans. It reduces the appearance of age spots and sun damage as well as lines and wrinkles. Additionally, it stimulates the production of collagen and elastin to improve the skin's overall texture and tone.

Define Vitamin A Resurfacing Treatment

Define helps you remodel your complexion. It contains a triple blend of Chirally Correct AHA and 2% encapsulated Retinol AGP complex to repair and heal the skin while restoring its natural barrier function. Define exfoliates the top layer of skin and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. Apply it in the evening after cleansing and your other favourite serums.

Refine Retinol Serum

If the effects of sun damage are taking a toll on your skin, Refine is formulated to improve skin's texture and tone and address the signs of ageing. Refine contains 4% Retinol AGP complex, as well as amino acids, to boost collagen production. This improves the skin's tone and texture while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Apply it after cleansing, at night, every third day for 14 days until you see how your skin reacts.


Defy Age Management Exfoliator

Ideal for all skin types, Defy specifically addresses the signs of ageing. It contains Chirally Correct AHAs to gently exfoliate the skin while delivering healing nutrients to the deepest layers of the skin. Use it to treat sun-damaged skin and smooth fine lines and wrinkles. Apply it in the evening after cleansing and your serums.
