Extra Info:

Ishtar Skinlights retinol products are  designed to intensively repair ageing/damaged skin. Retinol has proven benefits for many different skin types and can help improve eczema, acne, sun damage and the signs of aging. Best results are achieved after 8-12 weeks of use.

This 1% Serum is ideal if you are just starting to use retinol. It can be used daily. Vitamin A is a powerful skin repair agent. Higher concentrations of retinol can cause minor irritation in some skin types, such as dryness and peeling. This serum is suitable for all skin types and can help your skin adjust to retinol before progressing to higher concentration products such as our 2.5% cream.


Apply daily.

Skin Type:

All skin types, particularly sun-damaged, aging or scarred skin.

You May Also Like to Know:

  • Exposure of the product to sunlight can make retinol less effective, so it's best to apply it at night.

  • It is best not to apply retinol *at the same time* as vitamin C, as both of these antioxidants use the same pathways to take effect in the skin. There is better skin uptake if you leave a 20min+ gap between the two.

  • Our retinol products can be used alongside our Mandelic/Glycolic acid products. Research shows that using a retinol product in conjunction with an Alpha Hydroxy Acid exfoliant significantly improves its effectiveness in treating sun-damaged skin.

  • There is a lot of scientific data backing up retinol's powerful skin rejuvenating effect. For for info read the article we wrote here.
