Retinol Uglies

Currently using Cos De Baha Retinol Serum. The first week was great. Currently at the retinol uglies phase (purging, dryness, skin exfoliating etc.) For retinol users, what hydrating products do you use to help soothe redness and irritation from retinol? The products I currently use to somewhat soothe my skin are the ff: 1. Isntree Hyaluronic Acid Toner 2. One Thing Centella Asiactica Extract 3. Illiyoon Ceramide Ato Concetrate Cream (PM) 4. Illiyoon Ceramide Ato Soothing Gel (AM)

I think you are using great products to help reduce irritation. you can always use buffer method and slugging to reduce irritation buffer method would only work for cream type products though. Use Vaseline or aquaphor to seal in all the product in the end of your night cream. I am tagging the products I use along side tretinoin

i honestly haven’t tried other retinol serums, and this is my first bottle. so I wasn’t sure if I’m doing my routine right, because I’m experiencing more purges than before.
