Navigating Retinol & The Sun: A Guide to Using FACTORFIVE's NEW Night Retinol Cream Safely

School’s out for summer! It's that wonderful time of year when we can finally unwind, soak up the sun, and indulge in our favorite summer activities. But amidst the excitement, it's essential to be mindful of the sun's powerful UV rays and their potential impact on your skin. In this blog, we delve into the world of retinol, our new Night Retinol Cream, and share expert tips on how to take the best care of your skin during the summer season. So, whether you're lounging on the beach, enjoying a poolside retreat, or embracing the great outdoors, let's ensure that your skin remains protected and glowing all summer long.

Night Retinol Cream & Your Skincare Routine

It’s been a little over a month since NEW Night Retinol Cream joined the FACTORFIVE lineup, and we are beyond ecstatic with the feedback and results we have received from our customers who have tried our newest formula. This exciting addition to our product line combines the power of retinol with our signature stem cell growth factors to deliver exceptional skincare benefits. 

One benefit of retinol is that it promotes cell turnover and exfoliates the skin, revealing a brighter and more even complexion. Additionally, stem cell growth factors assist in repairing damaged skin cells and improving skin texture. By combining the exfoliating properties of retinol with the regenerative properties of stem cell growth factors, Night Retinol Cream’s ingredients work harmoniously together throughout the night to effectively reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and texture, resulting in a smoother and more refined appearance in the skin. While this is beneficial for long-term skin renewal, it can temporarily weaken the skin barrier during the initial adjustment period.

Gradually introducing retinol to every other night or every third night initially, gives your skin time to strengthen its barrier function, reducing the risk of excessive moisture loss and irritation. As your skin becomes more accustomed to retinol, you can gradually increase the frequency of use so your skin can take full advantage of its amazing results.

Rise and Shine..and SPF!

There is no doubt about the remarkable results our Night Retinol Cream can offer. As we spend more time outdoors this summer, we want to take the time to emphasize the importance of being cautious about the effects of retinol and the sun. While retinol is a game-changer for skin rejuvenation, it can increase sensitivity to sunlight, making the skin more vulnerable to damage. As you should at any time of year, applying SPF should be the final touch to any skincare regimen. 

Dermatologists typically recommend using sunscreen with a minimum Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of 30 or higher. It's worth mentioning that SPF only measures protection against UVB rays, which primarily cause sunburn. To ensure comprehensive protection, it is essential to choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen that shields against both UVB and UVA rays. Our complicated relationship with the sun's risks and rewards runs deep, therefore it's best to stay protected from harmful rays whenever your skin is exposed. Your skin will thank you later!

The advice we all really needed. A smart skincare routine will yield you your best skin yet!
