Normally you apply your retinol (vitamin A) serum before you apply your moisturizer. But there has been a trend popping up on social media, Retinol Sandwich method.
But with the Retinol Sandwich method you apply a moisturizer …. Before …. you apply the retinol to your skin, then apply another layer of moisturizer …. After …. the retinol.
Are there benefits to the Retinol Sandwiching?
Yes, There’s reduced irritation and improved skin tolerance for retinol. Instead of using retinol only once or twice a week, using the sandwich method is a way to ease into a daily application of retinol to your skin.
Although, when a moisturizer is applied before the retinol, it acts as a barrier and reduces the absorption of retinol. The full benefits of using retinol are reduced. Retinaldehyde is a more tolerant, less irritating form of vitamin A, so skip the sandwich. If you feel your retinol is too irritating for your skin, try a retinaldehyde serum instead.
Why is it important you use retinol (vitamin A) daily and what is retinol?
Vitamin A is an essential element in maintaining healthy skin. Your body takes vitamin A and converts it into retinoic acid. Then the retinoic acid assists your skin cells to grow and develop. It promotes healthy collagen production, combats aging, and is beneficial in the treatment of acne.
Using a topical retinol skincare product daily, results in a visible improvement in fine wrinkles, smoothness, and hyperpigmented sun-damaged skin. You can use retinol products on the tops of your hands, your neck and your chest to reduce visible signs of aging.
Retinol is designed to shed the skin; as a result, a few people will experience some peeling, light redness, and minor dry patches, but not to the point of irritated redness, dryness, or itching roughness.
Adding retinol to your skin care routine will definitely soften the effect on your skin. It has the ability to reduce the tired, dull appearance that your skin may have acquired over time; it is extremely beneficial in the reduction of skin care problems.

I have visited Lois monthly for at least 10 years now and am so thankful that I found her. I'm 67 years old, work full time and am under constant stress. She's a fanatic about skin - constantly researching products, services and mixing it all with lovely relaxation techniques. I feel wonderful when I finish my facial, and I look so much younger. My friends and clients cannot believe my age - wrinkles? age spots? blocked pores? Nope, don't have any of that! Thank you Lois! You're the best!
My experience with Lois has always been excellent. My skin has visibly changed due to the treatments and products. So pleased with the results!

My sister referred me to Lois, her facials are amazing. They are almost as relaxing as a massage. I finished my treatment series and I'm very happy with my results. I joined her monthly membership program so I can keep seeing her. I recommend her to my friends now.

Lois has been my esthetician for about 20 years. Her service and knowledge is impeccable and I have not been able to find another esthetician that can offer the same. I still contact Lois for any skin issues I may have and she ALWAYS is able to treat and cure the skin issues especially the issues the dermatologists could not resolve.She is the best and puts in alot of time for research to make sure she offer the best products and services to her clients based on the client's skin and symptons.

I went to A Younger You Skin Care for help for my dry skin. Lois, the skin care specialist went out of her way to help me. I was impressed with her knowledge of skin care. Her recommendation of Rhonda Allison products helped my skin. My skin looks better every day. If you want the best skin care advice, go see Lois at A Younger You Skin Care Center.

I knew when I first started getting regular facials with Lois that I would enjoy it as a "treat" for myself and find it relaxing, which it certainly has been, every time! However, what I have been really pleased about is all the comments I have been getting on how nice, smoother, younger, and healthier my skin looks. At least five people in the last month alone have told me that my skin looks great! Thank you, Lois! ----Sharyn
