After decades of research, retinoids have been shown in studies as one of the most, if not the most, effective ingredient for turning around aging skin. They have been proven to smooth fine lines, fade age spots, reduce pores, and even cure some types of acne. Unfortunately, these vitamin-A derivatives cause so much irritation that most people give up using them before they ever have a chance to do their magic. That's where Babyface's Night Renewal comes in. Gentle, yet still effective. Best for those who have not used retinoids before, or for those who prefer to achieve some of the same benefits, but without the irritation. Oureffective formula was created to be a practical product that you can use daily. While not as fast acting as a prescription cream, the retinol in Night Renewal Creme is converted to retinoic acid slower and therefore there is little or no irritation. Compared to Retin-A, which usually produces results in about 4-8 weeks, the Night Renewal Creme is around 12 weeks. We use a 0.3% concentration of retinol (most OTC versions are 0.1% or less). Packaged in a light protected, airless jar for ease of use and to ensure freshness and effectiveness. While prescription formulas yield the most impressive results, there is also the downside of skin irritation. Some experience more than others, but if you are one of those who just can't deal with the red, itchy, constantly flaking skin - the Babyface Night Renewal CrÃ?ÃÂ¨me is a great option, and can also improve lines and discoloration, or as an acne treatment. Our retinol cream is gradually converted into retinoic acid (the active ingredient in the prescription creams) and results are seen at around 12 weeks for most people. Some will respond very quickly, but we do suggest giving it 3 months for real results. Cautions: Don't use a retinoid if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
