The "Three-Two-One" rule is a gradual approach to using retinol on the face. Retinol is a form of vitamin A that can be found in various skincare products and is known for its ability to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne. However, retinol can be quite potent, and using it too frequently or in too high of a concentration can lead to irritation and dryness.
To follow the "Three-Two-One" rule, start by using a retinol product every third night for a week. This allows your skin to become accustomed to the ingredient and can help reduce the likelihood of irritation. After a week, increase the frequency of use to every other night for another week. Finally, after two weeks, you can begin using the product every night.
It's also important to use a low strength of retinol to start with, and then gradually increase the strength as your skin becomes accustomed to it. It's also a good idea to use a moisturizer and sunscreen while using retinol as it can cause dryness and increase the skin's sensitivity to the sun.
It's always best to patch test before using any new product and be mindful of any adverse reactions. Consult with a dermatologist before starting any new skincare routine.
