Pea size amount should allow for full facial coverage
If you have never use a retinoid or your skin is sensitive to topical treatments, you should test a small area on your face and then wait 24 hours for any kind of reaction. If no reaction, you should apply a pea sized amount to your face once a week for 2 to 3 weeks. Next, apply Green Cream 3 times a week for a month. Ultimately, your goal should be to work up to applying Green Cream every night. Be patient as your skin adapts to a retinol treatment. Even with infrequent applications, you should see some results.
After gentle cleansing with a pH modulated cleanser or soap, apply a pea sized amount to the entire face, initially avoiding the eye and neck areas. Start using Green Cream every other night for 1to 2 weeks and gradually increase to once or twice daily as tolerated. Occasionally, a burning or stinging sensation may be flet during the first few weeks of use. Redness or amild rash can also develop. Discontinue use of the product for a few days and apply a mild moisturizer or hydrocortisone cream or lotion as needed. The latter should be discontinued when symptoms are improved. Please allow 6 to 12 weeks to see results. Please visit the management page to learn about treating side effects. 2. Dab small
