Those with sensitive skin can be much more careful and hesitant when choosing skin care products. If you are one of those who have never tried the glycolic acid peeling technique with the recommended doses of Vitamin C, we do not think that it is very suitable for you with its retinol content. Retinol, or retinoids, obtained from Vitamin A, is called the anti-aging miracle of skin care. Increasing cell renewal, providing a brighter appearance, regulating the skin surface and increasing collagen production in regular use, retinol also works against problems such as fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation and acne. One of the favorite ingredients of dermatologists, retinol is used with caution due to its powerful effect, despite all these heroic properties.

Recommended for many skin types, retinol is at risk of irritation and redness. Being careful and conscious is the most valuable element of taking retinol into your life, which can cause redness and peeling effect even in small amounts in first users. If you haven’t tried retinol-containing products, which can cause irritation on your skin at high rates, because of your sensitive skin, don’t worry, your entry ticket to the world of retinol is here!


There are probably many skincare products you use on a daily basis, and if you’re planning to venture into the world of retinol, you should be careful not to mix up ingredients. Before you start using products containing retinol, make sure that the products in your skin care ritual have soothing and strengthening properties. As many retinol products contain ceramides and fatty acids to strengthen the skin barriers, it is recommended to apply moisturizer to your skin against the drying property of retinol. Moisturizers, which create a storage area in your skin barrier, reverse the drying effect of retinol by trapping moisture.

It is recommended that you do not mix glycolic and salicylic acid products, even when you are not using retinol-containing products. One of the most valuable details in the use of retinol is products with SPF! It is imperative that you apply sunscreen against retinol-containing products that make your skin more sensitive!


If you have sensitive skin, don’t feel compelled to use retinol every day. Depending on your skin structure, you can start using retinol once a week and increase it according to its effects. Once your skin gets used to retinol, you can start increasing the dose. Regardless of your skin type, if you are using retinol for the first time, it is very normal to experience dryness and burning sensations. Depending on the reflections of your skin, you can moderate or increase the use of retinol.


You can get a supplement from a dermatologist to determine the most suitable retinol ratio for your skin. Artifacts containing retinol generally vary between 0.025% and 1%, while lower rates are more suitable for sensitive skin types. Also, you don’t always need to increase the retinol content! If you use low-rate retinol artifacts systematically, you can see the effects you expect, even if the result takes longer. Instead of using high-rate retinol products that irritate your skin for a very short time, it is much more reasonable to use low-rate retinol-containing products that do not disturb your skin for a long time!


The way you use it is as valuable as the ratio of retinol. For a safer experience, dermatologists recommend applying a pea-sized drop to your entire face. Spread a drop of retinol-containing artifact on your face, then test with a tissue. If the tissue sticks to your face, it means you’re using too much retinol.


If you are just starting out with retinol, it is recommended not to apply retinol to the areas around your eyes, around your nose, neck and décolleté, as it has a more delicate texture. Before applying retinol to these areas, you can strengthen your skin’s moisture barriers with a moisturizer.
