Can I apply retinol after using DuoCleanse?Updated 3 months ago

This depends on the DuoCleanse system you are using. Please see information on each DuoCleanse below:


Cleanse & Brighten

You can use DuoCleanse, Cleanse & Brighten together with retinol. If you are looking to incorporate DuoCleanse and retinol into your skincare routine, it is always best to start slow. 

Gradually introduce both products: Start by using each product separately and gradually introduce the other into your routine. For example, at first you could use Cleanse & Brighten on one night and retinol the next, or use them on alternate days. Once your tolerance has built up, you can use them on the same night. Double-cleanse with Cleanse & Brighten, and apply retinol before any other products. Follow with hydrating products like HydraGlo and CloudCream. Always remember to use retinol at night and follow with an SPF the next day as retinol increases sensitivity to the sun. 


Cleanse & Exfoliate

You can use DuoCleanse, Cleanse & Exfoliate together with retinol however we suggest using them on alternate nights. For example, you could use Cleanse & Exfoliate on one night and retinol the next, or use them on alternate days. After using DuoCleanse or retinol, always follow with hydrating products like HydraGlo and CloudCream.
