The accelerated cell turnover process helps to liven the skins superficial layer and slough away dead skin cells. It is one of the best known and most effective ingredients for skin care. Retinol has been reported to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, help the skin feel firmer and more supple, and improve the skin’s overall appearance.

How often do I use Lumière de Vie Retinol Crème?
Retinol is an amazingly potent ingredient, so we recommend giving your skin time to adapt.
For new Retinol users: Use two days on, two days off. Work your way up to daily while following Steps 1-5.
For advanced Retinol users: Use daily following steps 1-5.
Because of the potency of Retinol, are there any special steps or precautions I follow when using the product?
Yes! Retinol may increase photo-sensitivity; therefore, we always recommend using a high-protection, broad-spectrum sunscreen. Also, due to the accelerated cell turnover, it is recommended to stop using Retinol several days prior to any waxing appointments as the superficial layer of the skin will be revealing newer skin cells.
Is this product safe for people with sensitive skin?
Retinols are a more intensive anti-aging treatment, so we would recommend trying on a small area before using the full treatment. Also, we do not recommend if you have experienced irritation from retinol products in the past. This product does take time for your skin to adapt and you may experience some amount of irritation, mild redness, a warm tingling when you first start using the product. If irritation persists, please consult a physician.
What percentage of retinol does this product have?
Due to the intensity of retinol, it’s best to focus on the combination of ingredients rather than the percentage of retinol. The higher the retinol percentage, the higher chance the product has to cause overly aggressive effects on skin. This product has been formulated to be just the perfect amount to achieve the benefits you want.
What makes the Lumière de Vie Retinol Crème different from others on the market?
The Lumière de Vie Retinol Crème uses a delivery system known as Poly-Pore 120 RE. This system is designed to provide sustained release of retinol in order to help reduce irritation.
