When first using, apply no more than three times per week, at night. Increase frequency to every other night and, finally, every evening as tolerated. Regardless of how often it is used, apply a pea-sized amount after cleansing and toning. Avoid the lips, direct contact with the eye, and corners of the eyes. You may apply up to the orbital bone of the eye area. For best results and to reduce the risk of irritation, it is best when used with our cleanser, toner, serum, and daytime and nighttime moisturizers.
If irritation occurs, reduce frequency of use or mix one pump of this retinol treatment with your favorite Paula's Choice serum or moisturizer. If irritation persists, discontinue use. Protect skin with sunscreen rated SPF 25 or greater daily or layer sunscreens (moisturizer, foundation with sunscreen, and pressed powder with sunscreen) if they are all rated SPF 15 or greater (and greater is better). Do not apply at the same time as an AHA or BHA exfoliant; your exfoliant may be applied in the morning.
