FAQs

Q: In my search for retinol treatments, many of the products are night creams. Is it okay to use them during the day instead?

A: Early retinol research revealed that pure forms can breakdown quickly when exposed to air and sunlight. Over time, skincare science has yielded synthetic versions of retinol that are much more stable. However, to optimize results, many experts maintain that it’s still best to avoid sunlight and recommend applying them before bedtime.

Q: Many retinol creams claim to feature “retinol” but don’t include it in the list of ingredients. I’m confused!

A: Some retinol products actually include versions that are buffered with chemicals to reduce irritation, like retinyl palmitate and retinyl linoleate. While these retinol forms are ideal for sensitive complexions or first-time users, they’re not as strong as pure retinol. Products with pure retinol are often more expensive, but deliver better results and will always list “retinol” in the ingredients.

Q: I’m in my late 30’s and have started using my first retinol night cream a few times a week. It’s been six months and I haven’t noticed any results; am I doing something wrong?

A: You may need a stronger formula. Professor of dermatology Jeffrey Dover explains that you should feel a little bit of a tingle after application. Also, if retinol isn’t one of the first five ingredients listed, there’s likely too little in the product to be effective. And since air can degrade retinol, purchase products in opaque packages with pump tops.

Q: Summer has definitely taken a toll on my complexion; it looks a lot duller and more uneven than usual. My skin is on the sensitive side, so what’s the best treatment to brighten it up?

A: Add an exfoliating treatment to your daily regimen during autumn. WebMD recommends skipping scrubs with physical exfoliants – like sugar, salt and nuts – as these can irritate skin. Instead, opt for chemically based exfoliating ingredients. In particular, alpha-hydroxy acids are known to be mild enough for sensitive skin.
