Direction of Use
Retinol application should be phased in gradually. Use twice a week for the first 2 weeks, every other day for the next 2 weeks, then everyday.
After cleansing in the evening, apply a small amount of Retinol 10TR directly onto the face. Leave to absorb for a few minutes before applying your regular Medik8 Hydrator.
Retinol 10TR can be used as a stand alone product to target skin ageing concerns. For the best anti-ageing benefits, Medik8 recommends to combine the use of vitamin C in the morning & vitamin A in the evening. These two molecules act synergistically to yield much faster results. Use of sunscreen is always advised when using retinol as part of a skincare regime.
Consult with your GP before commencing a retinol regime if pregnant, lactating or undergoing skin peeling procedures or taking prescription medication for acne.
