An ampoule is a supercharged serum with higher concentrations of active ingredients. Ampoules are the perfect travel companion due to their compact size with 3-4 uses. They can also be used for a finite amount of time as a booster or when you’re having a skin crisis
Who needs it?
There’s no age restriction on the use of retinols. It’s possible to start using it from your 20’s as a preventative, anti-aging measure. Anytime you notice fine lines and sun damage appearing on your skin is a good time to start. From your 30’s onwards, retinols can be a regular/daily feature in your skincare routine.
What are the benefits?
Decreases the appearance of deep wrinkles and fine lines
Improves texture for a softer, smoother skin
How to use?
One capsule is 2/3 uses. Snap the lid, dispense the serum into your hands, massage all over the face and decollete.
Use an SPF sunscreen everyday while using retinols as your skin will be more susceptible to sun burn while the cell turnover pushes new, delicate skin cells to the surface.
Tip: This oil-based formula works well under makeup for a more dewy hydrated look.
Beginners should start slow, using an ampoule once per day, at night, to allow your skin to adjust to the ingredients strength.
If you do experience side effects, such as ‘Retinol Red’ – a small flush that appears when retinol is over used, please reduce use to every second or third day untl your skin has adapted to the retinol.
Make sure you skip your Retinol shots on the days that you exfoliate as this may increase your skins sensitivity and cause a reaction to the retinol.
