Tips and Tricks?
You never want your Retinol to make you peel, get red or be irritated. If yours is a little to strong try starting out twice a week, and work your way up to every other night. Eventually try to go to every night. Another trick is to buffer your Retinol with one pea size amount of moisturizer or Lytera before you put it on.
