Here is another very good article about retinol which I highly recommend to read for anyone who is anything less than a pro in skincare and anti-ageing.
|Flaking skin from too strong retinol product|
|Ginvera Marvel Gel helps get rid of flaking|
What if your skin is already peeling, you need to get out of the house and you don't know what you can do to reduce that desquamating skin? In this case I use a product called Ginvera Marvel Gel. I use it after a standard face exfoliant which, unfortunately, doesn't normally remove flaking skin, but it somehow makes Ginvera gel more effective. You can also try to use the mentioned product without exfoliation beforehand. Ginvera Marvel Gel targets the cornified skin layer dissolving and removing the dead skin cells on the top most epidermis layer. One word of caution: use it only in emergencies as it certainly has some ingredients that work in a similar way to AHA, BHA, which means that it will irritate your already irritated skin instead of soothing it. However, it will get rid of the flakiness at least for a few hours. Watch the video to see how the marvellous gel works on skin. The YouTube video has more than just a demo of the mentioned product, so be patient.
What is your experience with retinol products? Do you use any? Will you in the future if you are still too young now?
