Why you should consider using Retinol
Retinol is a derivative of Vitamin A, which is important for maintaining healthy, youthful looking skin. Retinol is a powerful active ingredient that helps address a variety of skin issues such as fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, dullness, and acne. It has the ability to trigger cell regeneration, increase collagen production, and boost cell turnover which helps to brighten and smooth out skin texture. As a result, you may notice that your skin looks brighter, more evenly toned, and younger overall.
Retinol is best applied at night as this is when our cell turnover is at its highest. Before applying, it is recommended to cleanse the skin to remove any dirt, oil, and makeup. Retinol should then be applied directly to the face and spread evenly across the skin. It is important to use a lightweight moisturizer afterwards as retinol can be irritating for those with sensitive skin.
Now, when it comes to the amount and frequency of retinol to apply, it is best to start off slow, mild and gradually increase the over time. Many people start with a once to twice weekly application of a retinol serum or cream and gradually increase this over the weeks and months to more frequent applications, such as day or every other day. Additionally, it is important to note that retinol can cause your skin to become photosensitive therefore it is important to use sunscreen regularly when using a retinol product.
Overall, retinol is a powerful active ingredient that can help improve the appearance of skin by increasing cell turnover, boosting collagen production, and reducing wrinkles and fine lines. Its benefits are best seen over time, typically taking 4-8 weeks to see noticeable results, and as already mentioned it’s very important to start off slow and increase the amount and frequency over time to give the skin time to adjust to the product. Additionally, it is important to remember to use sunscreen regularly when using a retinol product otherwise you can cause more harm than good. Retinol is an excellent product to help you achieve the youthful, radiant complexion and a must have product if you are in your late 20’s or older.
