Retinol is recognized worldwide as one of the most powerful anti aging treatments.  It's a dual benefit agent that works wonders for acne and antiaging - it's simply the most effective treatment for reducing wrinkles!   Over 40 years of established research shows it can help visibly increase the appearance of firmness, diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles, significantly improve uneven skin tone, smooth and refine the surface of skin (yes, that includes pores), and much, much more.  When skin's appearance is affected by environmental assault (and everyone's skin is) or you have signs of aging, uneven skin tone, wrinkles, or an apparent loss of firmness, retinol steps in to minimize those concerns.

 

That's because it works the only substance that works on your skin at the molecular level.   Once applied, enzymes in your body convert retinol into retinoic acid, the active form of the vitamin A.  Vitamin A is an extremely effective skin-transforming ingredient that seems to know just what your skin needs to help diminish visible signs of aging.  Retinoic acid works on skin cells in a variety of helpful ways. Namely, it increases cell turnover, stimulates collagen and elastin production, fades hyperpigmentation, and helps your skin stay hydrated and glowing - without irritation!

 

It’s also a key cell-communicator that connects to almost any skin cell receptor site.  It's amazingly effective at making your skin cells behave like healthier, younger versions of themselves.  It's a proven all natural anti acne solution and an exfoliating agent that treats hyperpigmentation.  

 

All forms of vitamin A break down and deteriorate when exposed to air and light. Only buy a retinol product if it's packaged in an opaque container that eliminates or minimizes exposure to air and light (that is, no jars!).

 

If you are new to using retinol, start slowly. Instead of daily application, apply your retinol product every other day and/or mix it with your usual moisturizer or serum to see how your skin does. Some people need to use a retinol product more frequently, while others only need to use it every other day. And be sure to pair it with an excellent moisturizer!

 

Always apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 30 or greater. If you aren't diligent about sun protection, even the most effective, proven anti-aging ingredients won't be able to deliver the results you want. Unprotected sun exposure and getting a tan (indoors or outside) is just bad for skin. Daily use of sunscreen as directed, along with other sun protection measures, decreases the risk of skin cancer and early skin aging caused by the sun.

 

Avoid retinol products that only give your skin retinol. As great as retinol is for all skin types, everyone's skin needs more than just one brilliant ingredient to look and feel better. Think of it like your diet: If you only ate carrots, you'd soon become malnourished, even though carrots and the vitamin A they contain are good for you. The same is true for your skin: It needs a mix of beneficial ingredients to thrive and look younger, longer!
