Feeling blah with your skin? Need a lift, a boost, a moment of sanity? Retinols to the resuce! If you're noticing fine lines, wrinkles and pigmentation, you're missing out if you're not using a retinol. Retinol is an effective ingredient that will help you achieve happy, healthy, YOUTHful skin.
Here are the TOP 5 REASONS you should be using a retinol
Retinol rejuvenates the skin. Retinol is derived from vitamin A and helps skin produce collagen. Collagen is a natural component of skin that gives it a youthful, plump appearance. Retinol gives skin a healthier appearance. Retinol can help reduce discoloration, wrinkles, and fine lines. Plus, it can improve skin texture, tone and color for younger-looking, even skin. Retinol stimulates cell turnover. Exfoliating is essential if you want healthy, youthful-looking skin. By exfoliating dead skin cells, new, healthier cells are able to come through. Your complexion will also look smoother! A layer of dead skin cells on your face makes it harder for products to penetrate , so regular exfoliation is important for ingredients to absorb effectively. Retinol improves acne. Dealing with aging skin AND acne = double the stress! You're not alone, 50% of adult women are affected by acne. Fortunately, because of retinol’s exfoliating benefits, it can help treat acne. That’s because dead skin cells can clog pores and contribute to acne. By getting rid of dead skin cells, retinol improves and prevents breakouts. That's a DOUBLE Yay!! Retinol is less irritating than retinoids. My skin is NOT ready for PURE vitamin A, or retinoid, from a dermatologist. I peel, turn red and stop using the product before I see the benefits. Sound familiar? Retinoids are more potent than retinols but are not for everyone. Retinol is gentler because it gradually converts to retinoic acid, which is the active ingredient in prescription treatments. Retinol is ideal for those with sensitive or easily irritated skin and those trying retinoids for the first time. Ready to get started with a retinol in your nightly routine?
