Boost your bedtime routine with Retinol

How your regimen can help your skin restore and regenerate

Want to take your skincare to the next level? Consider adding in some game-changing  ingredients before you go to sleep.

 During the day, it's all about protecting your skin with ingredients like antioxidants and moisture-rich products with SPF. As our skin is under attack from environmental stressors like pollution and blue light, think of your skin being in survival mode.

 As we sleep, our body regenerates and gets us ready for a new day. As we rest our minds and bodies, our skin is in recovery mode and working hard to rebuild and repair. Adding an ingredient like Retinol at night is a bright idea for many reasons.  For starters, skin has better tolerability at night. And since Retinol is photosensitive, applying after dark will not degrade the product or lose its potency. And although our Retinol formulas are available for both daytime and nighttime use, we’re specifically shouting out sleep time here and sharing why adding Retinol to your pm routine is a dream.

At night, your skin can focus on recharging as you power down, take off your makeup, and remove the day's dirt. As your body rests, your skin is getting a workout at night, so empowering your skin to be its healthy-looking best can get a boost from ingredients like Retinal, one of the most potent form of retinoids and a star ingredient in our new night moisturizer. The main difference besides one vowel between Retinol and Retinal is that Retinal targets your skin more quickly and is faster acting than Retinol alone.

 But if you're worried about sensitivity when it comes to Retinol or Retinal, fear not. We've balanced all those hard-hitting ingredients with skin soothers like NIA-114™, Ginger Root Extract, Beta-Glucan, and Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 to approach restoration in a kinder, gentler way. Think of these ingredients as the chamomile tea that helps you unwind and soothes after a long, hard day

Speaking about our NEW Advanced Retinol Nightly Renewal Moisturizer, our VP of Product Development and in-house skincare expert had this to say, “At night, we love the idea of giving your skin some sanctuary and creating a perfect environment for active restoration and replenishment."

 So, as you settle in, add a hardworking product with potent ingredients to give you the peace of mind you need to restore yourself and your skin.
