Retinol

Question: Hello i am Laura, 35 years old. i have very sensitive skin, and everything block my pores, i basically cant use any cream, only few products work for me and i want to start using a low concentration retinol, and maybe hyaluronic acid or lactid acid. I have also mild to moderate acne. which retinol and hydrating cream can you recommend?
Answer:

Thank you for reaching out to us. I would recommend the brand SkinCeuticals. Their Retinol 0.3 is designed for your skin type , I would start out slow possibly once a week to start and work your way up from there. I would not apply more than 3 x a week. I would follow with their Daily Moisture . Their Hyaluronic Acid Intensifier would be great to apply first before your retinol for additional hydration benefits. With this product you can use duriring the day as well. I would aslo recommend their Micro-Exfoliating Scrub to be used periodically to help with your pores. I hope this helps, have a nice day!
