Contra-Indications and Precautions
Retinol is an active ingredient with a potential sensitizing effect, which may cause skin dryness, tingling, tightness, discomfort, desquamation, redness .... This is why it is not recommended for sensitive and reactive skin. Before using a retinol-based product, perform a skin tolerance test. Apply a few drops of the product in question to the hollow of the arm or on the wrist and wait a few seconds. If a significant skin reaction occurs, do not apply the product to the face.
As a precautionary measure, the use of retinoid-based cosmetics during pregnancy and breastfeeding is not recommended.
Retinol is a photosensitizing substance and should therefore be used preferably at night. Also remember to apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen during the day and to avoid any exposure to the sun.
