Retinol+ Acne Treat­ments

Look (UK) - - LOOK BEAUTY -

Retinols are de­signed to speed up cell turnover and smooth the ap­pear­ance of skin and fine lines. Be­cause of this, they can of­ten re­sult in slight skin peel­ing from all the ex­fo­li­a­tion. Pair this with a pure acne treat­ment like sal­i­cylic acid or ben­zoyl per­ox­ide, de­signed to slough away skin cells and dry up blem­ishes, and you’re in for a case of ex­treme dry­ness, red­ness and ir­ri­ta­tion. Ouch.
