How much Retinol should you use

On a clean dry face, Apply only a pea-sized amount (if gel) or 2-3 drops (if serum) to the entire face at night. Wait for a few minutes for it to absorb before applying anything else. Use an SPF 50 sunscreen in the morning.

 

If you are new to Retinol, use the lowest possible concentration of retinol (0.1%) first, and then graduate to higher percentages as your skin gets used to retinol.

How much retinol is needed to be effective

When you start using Retinol, you start with 0.1% and even this lowest percentage of retinol can be effective in improving the fine lines and overall health of your skin.
