The results you can expect from retinol aren’t just based on the strength of the product or what form of retinol you’re using, but also how it is delivered into your skin. The effectiveness of your retinol treatment and your results long-term rely largely on its ability to reach the cells. This is why we recommend Lira Clinical retinols! 

Why Lira Retinols?

Lira Clinical is the global leader in brightening and corrective skincare! All of their products are formulated with the latest innovations in ingredient technology. Not only do they provide the highest quality of pure ingredients found in nature, they also formulate with the highest concentration of ingredients. 

This is why their retinol formulations are so effective. Retinol is a key component in not only maintaining healthy skin function but in treating skin concerns and conditions. 

There is a lot of misinformation and misleading testimonials about retinol. The thing is, like all corrective skincare, formulations matter

The formulations we recommend have appropriate concentrations of retinoids, in a delivery system that has the ability to improve your skin conditions without the irritation that often accompanies tretinoin formulations. Here are our options!
