You can and should use retinol in the summer! We have a few tips to get the most out of it during the warm weather.
Tip One: Start low and go slow. If you are new to retinoids begin using it every 2 to 3 days or try mixing it with your moisturizer. Gradually increase frequency to every other night as your skin adjusts.
Tip Two: Cleanse your skin in the morning to remove any leftover retinol residue from the night before. Vitamin A in all forms can make skin more sensitive to the sun.
Tip Three: Always, always, always wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen. Daily use can help prevent premature signs of aging.
Tip Four: Only buy a retinoid product if it is packaged in an opaque pump container that minimizes exposure to light and air. All forms of vitamin A eventually break down and oxidize when exposed to light and air.
