What is it….
After sunscreen, the skincare ingredient dermatologists most often recommend to keep signs of ageing at bay is retinol. This powerful product reduces fine lines and wrinkles by increasing the production of collagen. They also stimulate the production of new blood vessels in the skin, which improves skin colour. Additional benefits include fading age spots and softening rough patches of skin.
There are many benefits, but the main reasons why people buy and use retinols are:-
- Clear Your Acne
- Fight Signs Of Ageing
- Help Even Skin Tone
- Help Reverse The Signs Of Sun Damage
How it works….
Retinol is a type of retinoid, which is made from vitamin A. Rather than removing dead skin cells as many other anti-ageing and acne products do, the small molecules that make up retinol go deep beneath the epidermis (outer layer of skin) to your dermis.
Once in this middle layer of skin, retinol helps neutralise free radicals to boost the production of elastin and collagen. This creates a plumping effect that reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and enlarged pores. At the same time, retinol has an exfoliating effect on the skin’s surface that can further improve texture and tone.
When should I start using them….
Your mid-twenties are a great time to start using retinol if you’re eager to get a head start and utilise the latest technologies however we recommend clients have a well established routine when they hit their thirties, as that is when collagen levels in the skin start decreasing more rapidly.
Another key tip for usage is to incorporate it into your night skincare routine only as it can make your skin more sensitive to the sun. So it’s important to use sunscreen with at least SPF 30 every day — even when it looks cloudy.
When It Comes To Reversing The Signs of Ageing….
Retinol is one of the only ingredients with scientifically-proven benefits, making it a reliable investment for your future. Retinol is hands down the industry golden ingredient. It has the power to help accelerate skins renewal and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and age spots for firmer smoother and more evenly-toned skin.
