We are all familiar with the benefits of using retinol for the health and beauty of the skin, but the arrival of the summer days often means removing the retinol from the front shelf. But, contrary to popular opinion, retinoids, which balance and hydrate the skin, are also needed during the warmer months.
The recommendation for skin care in the summer is to switch from heavier and moisturizing creams to those more breathable and lightweight, and putting a strong emphasis on the use of products with a high protective factor. Retinols and retinoids can remain in front of the line and you do not have to give them up in the summer months. More information about retinols and retionids can be found in the recently published text.
Today, we can find even easier alternatives for highly concentrated retinols and retinoids, which help control acne, enhance skin tone and reduce wrinkles. Retinol serums have the same benefits, as well as several additional soothing properties. The latest Retinol Rescue Face serum Clark's Botanicals, releases a concentrated amount of retinol, and at the same time ensures and nourishes the skin with oatmeal and red algae extract to reduce redness and inflammation.
And while retinoids are used twice a day by some, especially in winter days, serum is applied once a day, usually in the evening. They are applied after cleansing the face before night-time cream as they can increase sensitivity to the sun's rays. At night, however, retinols accelerate cell changes, giving a mini chemical peel and increasing the amount of collagen in the skin.
If you want to avoid retinols during the summer months or just have sensitive skin, look for these serums that give a similar result to retinols.
In the summer months, try the Skin Ceuticals Retexturing Activator, designed for all skin types that handle the problems of slow skin exfoliation, encourages the renewal and production of collagen in the skin and restores skin balance.
