5 ways retinol can transform your skin

5 ways retinol can transform your skin

Retinol is the holy grail of ingredients. It is in fact the only FDA recognized ingredient to help target wrinkles and sagging skin for ALL skin types. Learn how retinol can help you achieve your perfect skin goals!

  1. Retinol improves skin’s resilience. Studies have clearly shown that topically applying retinol helps to increase collagen production in skin. Since collagen is a vital building block in our skin, an increase in collagen makes skin smooth and more resilient.
  2. Retinol improves skin tone and texture. Retinol has exfoliating properties that help to remove damaged layers of skin while slowly revealing healthier, clear skin. This newer skin is oftentimes more even toned and smoother.
  3. Retinol stimulates cell turnover and maximizes product penetration. Since retinol acts as an exfoliating agent, dead skin is removed from the surface, allowing actives to pass through the epidermis, penetrating deeper into the dermis for maximum results.
  4. Retinol helps to control acne. Perfect for mature skin with hormonal acne! Retinol helps to keep pores clean, preventing against future breakouts.
  5. Retinol is less irritating than prescription retinoids. Retinol is gentler than retinoids, because it gradually converts to retinoic acid which is the active ingredient in prescription treatments. Great for individuals with sensitive skin!

Additonal Retinol facts to consider:  

  • Don’t use a retinoid if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • Waxing can cause excess redness on retinoid-treated skin; don’t use a retinoid for several days before a treatment.
  • A small percentage of people with ultrasensitive skin can never tolerate a retinoid; if you’re one of them, use a gentle physical exfoliator twice a week to soften your skin, and be extra-conscientious about sunscreen to prevent collagen loss in the first place.
