How Can I Incorporate My Timeless Products Into My Retin-A Treatment?


Before choosing a new skin care product, it’s a good idea to compare one product with another to be sure the ingredients complement each other. Naturally sourced skin care products are already a great option because they’re often more agreeable with less harmful irritants and preservatives for your skin,  Yet, the fact remains that without proper usage, adverse skin reactions may result.  Here at Timeless, we want you to be able to incorporate our serums and other products with what you might currently be using, such as Retin-A or vitamin A products.  

What to Take Into Consideration


When it comes to Retin-A treatment and other prescription skin care, your best bet is to simply ask your dermatologist for product usage based on your specific skin care needs.  Some Retin-A formulas have a higher concentration of retinoic acid than others and therefore caution is needed when incorporating a serum.

In general, a lightweight serum for anti-aging would be applied prior to a heavier weight product such as a retinol or retinoid.  Follow your doctor or manufacturer’s instructions with your prescription and/or over the counter (OTC) vitamin A products.  Areas of concern with noticeable signs of aging are::

  • Forehead
  • Nose
  • Cheeks
  • Chin.  

Don’t Forget the Follow-Up


Once you’ve applied all your skin care products for the day, don’t forget about extra protection. During the summer months of the year, be sure to add a layer of SPF to protect your skin from the damaging effects of external factors, such as the sun's rays and pollution, reducing the visible signs of aging. Active ingredients like Retin-A may cause more photosensitivity so daily sun protection is critical.


What Are the Benefits of Retinol Serum?


Retinol is an ingredient that is most commonly used to exfoliate and improve acne related scars with the renewal of skin cells.. The serum removes debris from the pores and reduces the likelihood of blemishes. Products like our own Matrixyl 3000 serum reduce the appearance of dark spots, fine lines and broken capillaries associated with long-term sun damage. Retinol also boosts collagen production, which smooths the skin and creates a more youthful appearance.


How Do I Prolong the Life of the Serum?


Proper storage ensures you get the most out of your skin care products  With the exception of our Vitamin CEF airtight bottles, our serums come packaged in opaque bottles to prevent exposure to sunlight during shipment and storage. Avoid humid areas,  from sunlight or harsh overhead lights. Many people choose to store their acidic or active serums in the refrigerator. Only keep the bottle open for as long you need it to get the serum drops on your fingertips. Ensure the seal is tight each time you close the bottle.

How Do I Use Serums for Skin Care?


 Serums should be applied to clean skin beginning with lightweight potent serums and followed by the next. Our products, including Timeless Hyaluronic Acid, are all-natural, paraben-free and cruelty-free. Browse our store now to start your routine or get in touch with us for help choosing your products.
