Ah, retinol. Out of all the anti-aging ingredients on the beauty market, retinol is not only one of the most researched and beloved ones out there but also one of the most Googled. It’s often referred to as the holy grail of anti-aging skincare and it’s seriously adored by dermatologists. Want to know more about this skincare superstar? (Of course you do!) Here, we outline the ins and outs of using a retinol serum, including the benefits it provides, how to incorporate it into your routine and what makes L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Triple Power LZR 0.3% Pure Retinol Night Serum an innovative retinol product.
What are the benefits of using retinol?
Retinol is a vitamin A derivative that helps promote skin renewal. As we mentioned before, it is often called the holy grail of anti-aging ingredients. For starters, it has a laundry list of skin benefits. It helps to fight key signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles, but it can also help with uneven skin texture. In addition, retinol is excellent for minimizing acne and reducing free radical damage, and it can even help minimize pores. It’s easy to see why derms love it so much, right? Unlike many of the newer, more trendy ingredients you find in beauty aisles, retinol has been around for decades and has tons of scientific data backing up its claims.
Is retinol irritating to the skin?
There are many different types of retinol, and some are more irritating than others. A typical reaction to retinol is red, dry, inflamed skin. But because L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Triple Power LZR 0.3% Pure Retinol Night Serum contains a pure version of the anti-aging powerhouse, it’s less irritating, especially in its 0.3% amount. This percentage is known as the sweet spot for getting results without causing irritation to the skin—a win-win!
Who can use retinol?
Good news: Everyone can use retinol! Because it checks off so many musts on the anti-aging list, it’s a great fit for all ages and skin concerns. L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Triple Power LZR 0.3% Pure Retinol Night Serum is a gentle yet effective formula that can even be used on sensitive skin.
What makes this formula special?
There are a few things that make L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Triple Power LZR 0.3% Pure Retinol Night Serum such a groundbreaking product. The formula contains pure retinol, while other serums on the market have retinol mixed in with other ingredients. This means you’re going to get results without compromising your skin. And because the 0.3% dose in each bottle is paired with skin-loving ingredients like glycerine and hyaluronic acid, the formula is gentle and won’t cause the telltale red, flaky retinol skin. Pure retinol is often recommended by dermatologists over other forms because it is the most effective and the most researched. In addition, this new serum is fragrance-free and doesn’t contain parabens, colourants, mineral oil or silicone.
How do I incorporate this serum into my routine?
While L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Triple Power LZR 0.3% Pure Retinol Night Serum is ultra-gentle, we still recommend slowly introducing it into your skincare routine to ensure you don’t overwhelm your skin. To ensure you’re reaping all the benefits from your new retinol serum, be sure to use it at night, not in the day. Begin with one application at night and see how your skin does. If you don’t notice any reaction, you can increase the application to two or three nights a week and see how that goes. If you’re still reaction-free after a few weeks, go ahead and use it every night. If you do notice any redness or irritation, give your skin a break for a few days before picking it up again.
