9. Flip the Switch on Skin Ageing

Updated: Mar 21

Dermalogica’s Overnight Retinol Repair contains 0.5% encapsulated retinol so 100% of the retinol is absorbed into the skin reducing fine lines, wrinkles, discolouration and uneven skin texture.  As the skin ages the thick fibrous network that gives young skin its strength and resilience starts to degrade and the production of collagen and elastin starts to decrease.  The skin also starts to have less hydration causing the collagen fibres to become brittle and the skin becomes more delicate and vascular issues are more apparent. With these factors working against the desired youthful complexion it is important to help the skin by using products that promote biological stimulation and ingredients that kick start the skin renewal process.  The most profound results with this product are between the ages of 50-70 years because there is a differential change in the skin. Those who are in a younger age range still notice better texture and brighter skin as a result of using the Overnight Retinol Repair.  This customisable retinol therapy comes with a complimentary buffing cream that enables you to adapt the product to suit the client's individual needs. There is a formula to follow to introduce retinol to your skin and to help build its tolerance. 

Overnight Retinol Repair (ORR) to Buffing Cream(BC)

Create the size of a 5p using the following ratios to gradually introduce the retinol to your skin.

Weeks 1-2: 1 part ORR 3 parts BC Weeks 3-4: 2 parts ORR 2 parts BC Weeks 5-6: 3 parts ORR 1 part BC Weeks 7-8 100% Overnight Retinol Repair Changes in texture are noticeable within the first few days, but results are noticeaeable within 15 days of daily use and the skin's appearance continues to improve with the best results after 90 days. The Retinol works at a cellular level, so the skin retains at least 12% of its regeneration once the treatment is complete. For ongoing repair it is important to discuss treatment and product options with your skin therapist.  To purchase your Overnight Retinol Repair and Buffing Cream duo, visit our website
