Retinol is a derivative of vitamin A, which has been shown to have powerful anti-aging properties. When applied topically, retinol can help to stimulate collagen production, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and improve skin texture and tone. Additionally, it helps to reduce puffiness and dark circles, as well as brighten and firm the skin around the eyes.

When should I start using the Dope Skin Co Retinol eye cream?

The ideal time to start using retinol eye cream depends on your individual skincare needs and concerns. As a general rule of thumb, it's recommended to start incorporating anti-aging products into your skincare routine in your late 20s or early 30s, as this is when the first signs of ageing may start to appear.

How does retinol eye cream work?

When applied topically around the eyes, retinol penetrates the skin and helps to boost cell turnover, which can help to reduce the buildup of dead skin cells and unclog pores. It also promotes the production of new collagen and elastin, which are essential for maintaining the skin's firmness and elasticity.

How to apply the retinol eye cream?

Take a pea size amount on your fingertips. Then, gently pat it around the eye area and allow it to absorb completely for approximately 15 seconds before applying moisturiser.

If you're new to retinol, it's important to start with a low concentration and gradually increase over time to avoid irritation or sensitivity. It's also important to use sunscreen during the day, as retinol can increase sun sensitivity.

How often do I need to use the Dope Skin Co Retinol Eye Cream?

It's recommended to start by using it every other night and gradually increasing to nightly use as tolerated.

 It's also important to follow the instructions on the product label and not to overuse it, as using too much retinol can cause skin irritation and sensitivity.

What do I do if the eye cream gets into my eyes?

If the retinol eye cream accidentally gets into your eyes, you should immediately rinse your eyes with cool water to help flush out the product. Be sure to gently splash water onto your eyes and avoid rubbing or touching them, as this could further irritate the eyes.

Is face scrub necessary for my skincare routine?

While face scrub isn't strictly necessary for everyone, it can be beneficial for many people as part of a well-rounded skincare routine. Exfoliating with Dope Skin Co Antioxidant Coco Clay Exfoliating Face Scrub can help remove dead skin cells, dirt, and oil from the surface of the skin, which can lead to a brighter, smoother, and more even complexion. It can also help to unclog pores and prevent breakouts, especially for those with oily or acne-prone skin.

How often should I use the Dope Skin Co face scrub?

We recommend using the face scrub no more than once or twice a week. If you have oily or acne-prone skin, you may benefit from using a face scrub more frequently, up to three times a week, to help unclog pores and prevent breakouts. However, if you have sensitive or dry skin, you may want to limit your use of face scrubs to once a week or even less often.

Avoid rubbing too hard or using abrasive scrubs, as this can damage the skin and cause irritation.

Does the face scrub remove tan?

Face scrubs can help to exfoliate the top layer of dead skin cells and reveal brighter, smoother skin underneath. This can help to improve the overall appearance and texture of your skin, but it may not necessarily remove a tan.
