Hey there, lovely people! We are Dermabay, your go-to brand for all your skincare needs! Today, we are going to talk about the latest craze in the skincare world - the Retinol Sandwich!
The Retinol Sandwich is a technique that involves layering your retinol serum between two layers of moisturizer. It's a game-changer for people who are new to using retinol and want to avoid the dreaded retinol burn, or for those who want to make sure their skin gets all the benefits of retinol without any of the harsh side effects.
Here's how you can create your own Retinol Sandwich using our Dermabay Hydrating Moisturizer and Dermabay Retinol 0.2% serum:
Step 1: Cleanse Your Face
Before you start any skincare routine, make sure you cleanse your face thoroughly. This removes any dirt or oil that may be sitting on your skin, which can prevent your products from penetrating the skin properly.
Step 2: Apply the Hydrating Moisturizer
The first layer of the Retinol Sandwich is the moisturizer. We recommend using our Dermabay Hydrating Moisturizer for this step. It's a lightweight formula that provides intense hydration without leaving your skin feeling greasy or heavy.
Take a small amount of the moisturizer and apply it all over your face and neck, using gentle upward motions. Wait a few minutes for the moisturizer to absorb into your skin before moving on to the next step.
Step 3: Apply the Retinol Serum
Now it's time to add the star ingredient - the retinol serum. Our Dermabay Retinol Serum is perfect for this step. It's a gentle formula that's perfect for beginners and those with sensitive skin.
Take a small amount of the retinol serum and apply it all over your face and neck, avoiding the eye area. Make sure you wait a few minutes before moving on to the next step to allow the serum to absorb into your skin.
Step 4: Apply the Second Layer of Moisturizer
The final step in creating your Retinol Sandwich is to apply a second layer of moisturizer. This step is essential as it helps to lock in the retinol serum and prevent any dryness or irritation.
Once again, take a small amount of the Dermabay Hydrating Moisturizer and apply it all over your face and neck. This time, make sure you really massage the moisturizer into your skin, paying extra attention to any areas that feel dry or irritated.
And there you have it - your very own Retinol Sandwich! This technique is great for anyone who wants to add retinol to their skincare routine but is worried about the harsh side effects. By layering the retinol serum between two layers of moisturizer, you can ensure that your skin gets all the benefits of retinol without any of the harsh side effects.
