Medik8 Retinol 3TR

Retinol has been shown in several clinical trials to combat common skin-ageing concerns such as facial wrinkles, lines, folds and a loss of firmness by stimulating collagen and hyaluronic acid production. Retinol has also been proven to improve skin clarity and texture, promote anti-pigmentation plus demonstrate anti-acne and pore-minimizing effects, all leading to a more youthful skin appearance.
Retinol 3 TR Advanced Night Serum has unique time-release technology ensuring the anti-ageing benefits of pure retinol without the irritation and peeling associated with regular retinol products. Contains highly stable, pure, encapsulated all-trans retinol at 0.3% concentration. Retinol 3 TR is an optimized serum containing 0.3% encapsulated all-trans retinol in its purest and most active over-the counter form. Retinol 3 TR is designed to conveniently apply directly to the face without mixing.

Key ingredients:

0.3% Retinol – Pure vitamin A helps to boost collagen levels and enhance the skin’s natural regenerative cycle, leaving skin looking even-toned and youthful.

Vitamin E – An oil-soluble antioxidant, vitamin E can quench free radicals on the skin while stabilising retinol for optimal power.

Apply at night only
When introducing Retinol start by using Retinol 3TR before moving onto 6TR.
Retinol application should be phased in gradually. Use twice a week for the first 2 weeks, every other day for the next 2 weeks, then every day. After cleansing in the evening, apply 4 drops of Retinol 3 TR directly onto face. Alternatively, place a drop on your finger and then blend into the skin. Leave to absorb before applying your regular Medik8 hydrator.
Please ensure you are applying a sunscreen daily (even in winter months)

Precautions: Don't use if pregnant, lactating, undergoing skin peeling procedures, on any other vitamin A product, or taking prescription medication for acne.

Start low (application amount) and go slow (frequency of use).
On any sign of irritation reduce the frequency of use until skin acclimates
