It is a night cream and should only be used at night
An SPF30 sunblock should be used the morning after using it, e.g. SkinPep Hydra Sun Defence Spf 30 Day Cream. This is because retinol can make the skin much more prone to burning in the sun.
If our 0.5% retinol is used more frequently then we have listed it is very likely it will peel or even burn your skin. Overuse can cause redness and irritation of the skin. Please use it sparingly or mix it with an additional day cream or serum so that less can be used and it will cover the skin more thoroughly.
The effect of SkinPep Ultra Retinol 0.5, when used correctly, is a dramatic reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Your old dead skin will peel to real free new skin.
