How to apply

retinoid cream

Apply to clean, dry skin at night. After the product dries, use your favorite moisturizer to hydrate your skin. Wash it off in the morning. Afterward, reapply moisturizer and follow up with a broad-spectrum SPF every day.

Retinoids are powerful and proven to be wonderfully effective for a face, so you only need to apply a pea-sized amount to experience its benefits. Introduce it into your skincare routine once or twice a week, gradually increasing to every other night, then every evening as tolerated.

What to expect

As a prescription-strength cream, you may experience skin irritation, redness, and flakiness with initial use. Give your skin time to adjust by starting with a low dose and building up a tolerance over time.

Using retinoids means playing the long game with skincare. Expect full results in about four months and enjoy radiant, supple skin for years to come.

Build back collagen, refine lines

How do retinoids restore collagen?

Formulated with tretinoin, our retinoid works deep down at the receptor-level of DNA, boosting production of this core building block in skin while also inhibiting enzyme function tied to aging from UV exposure: effectively curbing collagen and elastin breakdown. The end result is supple, naturally elastic skin – and fewer, finer lines in turn.

What’s the difference between retinol and retinoids?

Prescription-strength retinoids have been used and carefully studied since the 1940s, being empirically proven to 1) minimize lines by boosting collagen, 2) even skin tone, 3) smooth texture, and 4) decrease acne.

A lighter over-the-counter form of retinoids, retinol is helpful for breakouts and texturing but is 20x less potent than retinoids like tretinoin, and lacks the same empirical rigor with wrinkle care.

We’ve got answers

How do I use my prescription-strength retinoid cream from Peachy?

We recommend using your retinoids at night. Apply a pea-sized amount to dry skin before bed and apply lotion/moisturizer after it dries. Wash off in the morning and use plenty of lotion and sunscreen. It can take around four months before you see the full effect.

Are the retinoids from Peachy the same as the ones at my pharmacy?

Not exactly! Our retinoid formula is entirely our own and designed by our in-house clinical team. Peachy Retinoids stem from a potent yet supportive blend of just four ingredients: tretinoin, vitamin C, niacinamide, and hyaluronic acid.

Are there any side effects?

Cell turnover is a key function of retinoids, which brings newer and naturally fresher skin. Because of that, some people experience temporary irritation, redness, and dryness in skin. We use the lowest effective dose to minimize these side effects. We also recommended you use a generous amount of moisturizer in the morning after you wash your face!

Do not use retinoids if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

How long does a bottle last?

Depending on frequency of use, each bottle contains 3.2 oz of product. This should last at least 3 months, though clients routinely tell us it lasts longer. A pea-sized amount goes a long way!

What if I need a refill?

Unless you’d like to discuss changing prescription strength, all you’ll need to do is call and we’ll be happy to submit your next refill!

Can I add retinoids to my current skincare regimen?

Since retinoids can cause skin sensitivity and dryness, we don’t recommend combining it with additional skin-drying topicals. This includes AHA/BHA acids or any creams known for skin peeling and exfoliation. Otherwise, our retinoids are extremely versatile and will work with virtually any skincare regimen.
