As one of the most effective anti-aging ingredients, retinol has the power to visibly transform your complexion. Even so, results take time. Whether you need a retinol cream for beginners or are an experienced retinol user, it is essential to gauge your skin’s tolerance for it and gradually increase use. Adding the appropriate strength of ZO® Retinol Skin Brightener to your routine ideally balances skin tolerability with results you can see.

All skins can benefit from retinol. The key to attaining visible results is to gradually build your skin’s tolerance for it. Depending on your ability to tolerate retinol, you may experience redness, flakiness, dryness and other common signs of irritation. Due to its potency, moderate sensitivity is to be expected.

How to use

Retinol Skin Brightener is a high-potency retinol treatment. If you have not been using retinol, begin use gradually.

Following cleansing, apply to clean, dry skin twice a week
Increase frequency to alternate days
Then, increase use to every day as tolerated

Some sensitivity when first starting to use retinol is normal. The amount of time it takes to build a tolerance to retinol varies from person to person. However, how your own skin reacts can be controlled by adjusting product strength and usage frequency. Over time, your skin will become accustomed to retinol, revealing a smoother, more even-toned and youthful-looking complexion.

ZO® has decades of expertise in the use of topical retinol for face. To moderate signs of sensitivity, we recommend pairing your Retinol Skin Brightener with one of our proven functional hydrators as well as an SPF to protect against photosensitivity.
