Who is it for?
A great place to start if you want a clinically proven, powerhouse of a retinoid that is not too aggressive. 3 and 10 were both in my empties last year. I’m not sure why I skipped 6 but 10 is for the more experienced retinoid user, and 20 is only available in Medik8 clinics.
Start with 3 unless you’re more experienced, if you’ve used 6/10 and were wondering where to move up to, 20 is available in professional Medik8 retailers.

You need this if…
Crystal Retinal 1 – You want to start on a retinoid but have very sensitive skin.
Crystal Retinal 3 – You have used oil based retinoids before and are ready to move up to something slightly stronger OR if your skin is not too sensitised, you can jump straight in.
Crystal Retinal 6 – You aren’t new to retinoids, but want a good maintenance level, or you want to steadily work your way up the ladder.
Crystal Retinal 10 – You are an experienced user of Vitamin A and you want to significantly kick things up.
Crystal Retinal 20 – Medik8 recommend using Crystal Retinal 10 every night for 3 months or using two complete tubes before moving on to 20.

You don’t need this if…
Crystal Retinal 1
– You’re not particularly sensitive and this is not your first rodeo.
Crystal Retinal 3
 -You are already using stronger retinoids and your skin is acclimatised.
Crystal Retinal 6 – You want steady progression into a stronger retinoid without irritation or overdoing it.
Crystal Retinal 10 – You’re new to vitamin a, you have sensitive skin or you’re young with a balanced skin.
Crystal Retinal 20 – Your skin is not used to 10. Only available under professional advice.

Tue Mar 8 , 2022
The fashion world has a short attention span, but when the spotlight is on a designer (or a photographer, a stylist, or model), no light shines hotter or brighter. And perhaps because that sphere is a place of great obsession, there is only room for a few at a time. […]
