Retinol is a true star for skin care products that helps reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, large pores, sun damage and gray skin.
Regardless of age, retinols and retinoids have become the gold standard in anti-aging care. Clinical trials show that the use of retinol improves turnover of skin cells, reduces collagen degradation and has great effect, making skin look and feel younger.
When we talk about retinol, retinoids and retin-A, we are talking about the retinoic acid that the skin uses in the recovery processes. Retinoic acid is an extremely effective cell component that can connect to almost all skin cell receptors and sends clear instructions to act as a healthy, younger skin cell. It also functions as an antioxidant that can interrupt the negative effects of free radicals that cause wrinkles and other signs of aging. In addition, it has shown to increase the production of collagen and help fade discoloration and damage from the sun, and there are also new research that suggests its potential to build elastin in the skin.
The difference between retinol and retinoid is in the concentrations of the active ingredient which is lost through the process of conversion from esters to retinoic acid. Therefore, widely available retinols are somewhat less effective than retinoids, but with long-term and continuous use, they give the same results. And in this case, more does not mean better. Pea size drop is usually enough to cover the whole face. Once you do the face, go down and massage your neck and décolleté.
Introduce retinol through night facial care. It is applied immediately after cleansing and before any other product for night care. If you use retinols for the first time, introduce them every other evening so that the skin gets used to the product. Retinol makes your skin more sensitive to UVA and UBV rays, so always wear SPF throughout the day. Also avoid using Retinol two to five days before waxing.
I suggest you try several retinol products:
Dermalogica Overnight Retinol Repair Cream, which is excellent for all those suffering from dry and dehydrated skin, as it will also treat the face with its richer texture.
Medik8 Retinol 10 TR ™ Advanced Night Serum (1% Retinol) is an excellent option for all lovers and retinol practitioners, whose skin can withstand 1% retinol. The serum is soft and soft, reminiscent of the oil and glides on the skin. It quickly absorbs and gives instant glow. In addition to immediately visible gloss, there are also rapidly visible results in the form of reduced fine lines and wrinkles and hyperpigmentation.
SkinCeuticals Retinol 0.5-night cream, great for night care. Reduces visible signs of irregularity, redness and acts to reduce the pore. It is excellent as a beginner retinol because it effectively and quickly prepares the skin for higher doses of active ingredients.
