5. Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Retinol Serum.
Best for: All the things! But specifically, all the fun stuff associated with ageing: lines, dullness, wrinkles, uneven texture, loss of firmness, enlarged pores.
Contains a high-dose 3.5% Retinoid complex: translation: three retinoids working together for a continuous, even release of actives.
This is buffered by soothing and hydrating squalane that soothes and hydrates.
Also representing in Beta Glucan which is a calming humectant (and again, helps the retinoid to just…chill)
As with all retinol, be gentle. Start with every third day, after two weeks increase to every other day IF your skin is tolerating it. Eventually you’ll build up to nightly use, but too fast too soon can lead to flaking and dryness.
How to use the Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Retinol Serum:
After cleansing, apply a thin layer over face. Keep out of eyes. Use nightly. If dryness or redness occurs, reduce frequency. Wear an SPF during the day.
What you need to know:
Retinol is the gold-standard ingredient for anything and everything anti-ageing.
I’ve tried a lot of retinoids — so believe me when I say they are not created equal.
This, THIS is a very excellent retinol that does everything it promises.
