I finished a several-month retinol treatment a few days ago. By reading on, you will find out how I used my Nanoil Retinol Face Serum and what I make of the effects it produced.
I decided to use retinol in the fall and winter season because of the less intense sunlight. Still, the latest research showed that retinol products are safe to use all year round so you can start off the treatment anytime you like.
Why did I choose retinol by Nanoil?
Because I’ve been using products from Nanoil for years and they always prove gamechangers. That was the first reason. The price was the other incentive. I don’t know how much it is now but back then the price was really attractive (similar products with the same retinol content were much pricier).
How did I use my Nanoil Retinol Face Serum?
Carefulness is essential when using any retinol product. You need to watch your skin to increase or lower the frequency of use if necessary. Because it is a strongly-working ingredient, skin irritations do happen. Let me share some tips I followed. I believe they saved me from irritations and redness.
When to use it? At bedtime.
It is important that you incorporate retinol into your nighttime, not morning, skin care routine. There are two reasons for that. First of all, the skin repair occurs at night, which means the skin makes the most of the active ingredients it absorbs when we’re asleep. Secondly, there’s no exposure to the sunlight so the risk of irritations is lower.
How often do you use it? Twice a week is optimal.
Dermatologists advise to use such products once a week at first. I used my retinol twice a week at the beginning, and then moved on to three times a week. Skin experts say four times a week is maximum. We shouldn’t use it every day to avoid adverse reactions.
How much to apply? Pea-size amount.
With retinol, less is more. I know a tiny pea-size drop seems not enough for the entire face but it is! Even the small amount will give you effects you use retinol for. Always avoid the eye area!
How to use it? Like any other serum.
I smooth it across the face and massage the skin. The face must be clean and dry.
Is a face cream necessary? Yes, it is.
Applying a night cream after retinol serum is a must. This way we lock the serum in so it doesn’t evaporate. Once I started the retinol treatment, a sunscreen became my morning skin care must-have. Retinol makes the skin more sensitive to the sunlight so SPF cream is necessary to minimize risk of sunburns and irritations.
What effects of Nanoil Retinol Face Serum have I noticed?
Lots of them! All of the post-acne marks are gone. New blemishes stopped appearing and I have a good face day every day! The skin got so radiant and perfectly moisturized. Of course antiaging effect is one of the top reasons why we reach for retinol, but I guess I need to wait a few years to see if the serum fulfills this purpose!
Do I recommend Nanoil Retinol Face Serum?
Wrap-up! Nanoil scores 10 out of 10! It is a brilliant product, non-irritating, long-lasting, and, most of all, it REALLY WORKS! I recommend it to retinol beginners and more experienced users. The official webpage (www.nanoil.us) is one of the spots where it’s available.
