Application Tips
When using a high-concentration retinol product, it is important to gradually establish skin tolerance, also referred to as "retinization," before advancing to more frequent usage. If you are a first-time user of pure retinol,* Mary Kay’s gentle retinization process (below) is recommended for you.

WEEKS 1 - 2
Mary Kay Clinical Solutions™ Retinol 0.5 1x per week, diluted with Mary Kay Clinical Solutions™ Calm+Restore Facial Milk

Directions: In the evening, cleanse skin and wait approximately 5-10 minutes. Mix a pea-sized amount (one pump) of Mary Kay Clinical Solutions™ Retinol 0.5 with one pump of Mary Kay Calm+Restore Facial Milk. Apply mixture to forehead, cheeks, nose and chin in an upward, outward motion, avoiding the eye area. Allow for full absorption before applying other skin care products. Mary Kay Clinical Solutions™ Calm+Restore Facial Milk can also be used throughout the day and week as needed to relieve skin. Use sunscreen during the day.

WEEKS 3 - 4
Mary Kay Clinical Solutions™ Retinol 0.5 1x per week, followed by Mary Kay Clinical Solutions™ Calm+Restore Facial Milk.

WEEK 5 - 6
Mary Kay Clinical Solutions™ Retinol 0.5 2x per week, followed by Mary Kay Clinical Solutions™ Calm+Restore Facial Milk.

WEEK 7 - 8
Mary Kay Clinical Solutions™ Retinol 0.5 3x - 5x per week, followed by Mary Kay Clinical Solutions™ Calm+Restore Facial Milk.

WEEK 9 & BEYOND
Continued benefits come with continued usage. Usage frequency of Mary Kay Clinical Solutions™ Retinol 0.5 is based on skin tolerance. Once skin is retinized, product may be used as often as every evening, if desired.


*TimeWise Repair® products do not contain pure retinol. TimeWise Repair® products contain an encapsulated, controlled-release retinol that’s not designed to retinize your skin. If TimeWise Repair® products are your only source for retinol, Mary Kay recommends following the retinization process to help skin adjust to the potency of the high concentration retinol found in Mary Kay Clinical Solutions™ Retinol 0.5.
