We recommend this
If you're someone who is looking to repair photo damage (fine lines, age spots, coarse skin) and regulate, balance and clarify blemish prone skin in a gentle progressive way.
Aside from SPF for preventing UV induced ageing, Retinol is our number one recommendation. Retinol is a derivative of Vitamin A and is fantastic ingredient for managing acne and for anyone over the age of 30 to have in their tool kit - but it’s important to be informed about how to use it correctly as it is a powerful.
Retinol helps regulate your skins production of healthy skin cells. In acne it slows things down so fewer dead skin cells are trapped in the pores. In ageing skin, it accelerates cell turnover, bringing fresh healthy skin cells to the surface faster, leading to a reduction in fine lines, more even skin tone and brighter plumper complexion. It also helps repair damaged cell DNA while you sleep. Your skin needs time to acclimatise to retinol therapy. Synergie Ultimate A uses encapsulated retinol to help minimise any irritation.
Mrs Ritchie's tip
With heavier hitting products like a retinol, there really is no rush. Ease your way in to make sure your skin stays happy and you will reap the long-term benefits.

What to Expect
Benefits of high dose vitamin A therapy at full clinical strength while minimising irritation.
Better texture, firmness and tone.
Regulated skin: oil and hydration levels are coached into balance.
Acne - If you have tried ditching your foaming cleansers, wipes and toners, and scrubs and are using vitamins B and C and a chemical exfoliator and still have problems, you should try Retinol - failing that a trip to the GP. We tread carefully in recommending Retinol in younger skins as it can over-stimulate skin and make skin photo-sensitive - which is unnecessary stress for skin. It can also cause redness and irritation.
Photo ageing - Vitamin A therapy is a brilliantly effective but a slow burner. So no need to hurry. Ease your way in to make sure your skin stays happy. A-hit is encapsulated retinol to make the journey easier.
How To Use
Start once a week for one week, then twice a week for two weeks, then three times a week for three weeks, and so forth. This way we can see how your skin reacts to it. Always use this product at night and use an SPF during the day.
