Here at ASDM Beverly Hills, we love sourcing the highest-quality skincare ingredients to bring the best confidence-boosting benefits to our customers. Alongside oxygen, rhassoul clay and of course hyaluronic acid, another key ingredient in our range of anti-aging solutions is retinol. This compound works wonders for fine lines and wrinkles as well as reducing the size of large pores, so we’ve created two products containing this fantastic skincare secret. As well as a night serum, we also have targeted capsules, also to be used at night. When treating your skin to retinol using daily and targeted methods, the results are fantastic as many of our clients would agree. Here we’ve rounded up the benefits of each retinol solution. But first…
What is retinol?
Retinol is a derivative of Vitamin A. This retinol needs to be broken down and turned into retinoic acid in order to bring the many skincare benefits it is capable of achieving. There are many prescription skincare products on the market that contain retinoids, which are the essentially the same but are more potent than retinol. Products containing retinol offer the same skincare benefits of prescription retinoid solutions, but in a gentler format. Retinol is an antioxidant and free-radical fighting agent that can help many complexion complaints such as acne, pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles.
Why should you use retinol serum?
By applying serum containing retinol onto your skin, it is then absorbed and broken down into the retinoic acid. This acid can then go to work, stimulating the cell turnover that can lead to the skin benefits listed previously. As cell renewal is boosted, collagen production is increased which leads to plumper, firmer, fresh looking skin. We’ve also added other ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, Vitamin E and silk peptides to our serum to nourish the skin, extending the renewal and anti-aging results.
Although retinol products can help those who suffer from eczema due to stimulating cell renewal, most customers will experience some irritation when using them. However, this can be managed by taking precautions and using it as instructed. We recommend using retinol products only once every other night when just starting out, and increasing to every night as your skin builds up tolerance. If you have particularly sensitive skin, do get in touch with a member of our team and we’ll be happy to advise on the best way you should use our retinol serum. Always wear SPF 30+ sunscreen during the day when using retinol products, and continue this for a week after usage has stopped.
What about the capsules?
If you don’t want to use retinol regularly or if you only have certain problem areas on your face that you want to target using retinol, then our small but mighty capsules can help. These capsules provide a concentrated dose of retinol (.24%). Although we have upped the amount used in the capsules to bring faster, focused benefits, this amount is still small enough to not harm the skin. We’ve also added a number of skin-soothing and anti-aging ingredients into each capsule to boost the benefits further, such as soybean oil and ceramide NP. These ceramides complement the capsules perfectly, preventing moisture loss and keeping skin firm, supple and healthy. To achieve results, the capsules need to be twisted open and massaged onto the area on the skin that you want to target. Like our retinol serum, the capsules stimulate collagen production and cell renewal, while protecting your skin from environmental factors that can increase the signs of aging and lead to dull skin. Instead, you can enjoy vibrant, firm, even and youthful skin with these retinol capsules.
Retinol is becoming a ‘must have’ ingredient in the beauty industry, and with our two leading products it is possible to unleash the benefits of this antioxidant compound in a way that suits your skin and your daily routine.
