Please ensure you are wearing sunscreen daily, especially once you have commenced using a retinol/retinoid product as this ingredient can increase UV sensitivity.
Please note: Introducing Retinoids into your skincare routine slowly is important to prevent irritation and sensitivity. We recommend beginning with once weekly and gradually increasing frequency over a number of weeks.
