How to use my retinol after PAO

Hello lovelies 👋💗 I hope October is off to a good start for all of you 💓 So I am getting close to the period after opening (PAO) of my The Ordinary 0.2% retinol in squalane and I wanted your advice on whether I could use it on my body instead of my face (I already ordered a new bottle for that) after I reach the PAO? I am asking because I would like to avoid just tossing it. Thank you 🥰

I use them on my stretch mark, even though it didn’t do much, it was just my way to not tossing it away lol.

Please, don't use anything after PAO since formulas usually lose their strength, the preservatives do not always protect formula after PAO and it's always better to be safe than use something after PAO and believe me bacterial infection or any skin infection is not the nicest stuff you can experience.
