Retinols, Not Your Mother’s Anti-wrinkle Cream

You might have seen retinols in creams, serums and oil when you are shopping for you night skin care routine. But what are they, why you need them, how can they help you? Retinols have become extremely popular due to their miracle skin cure history. They claim to be anti-aging, collagen stimulating, acne fighting and help with skin cell turnover. This give the appearance of plumper, younger, radiant looking skin. But the question is how do they work?

What is Retinol?

Retinol is the active component in Vitamin A. Vitamin A is found in carrots and you might remember your mother telling you that you must eat your carrots or you’ll go blind. While it has an important role in vision it also has an important role in skin health. You might have heard of Vitamin A for a treatment on skin concerns (acne in particular). This is because it is an extremely effective cell-communicating ingredient. It has the ability to connect with almost any skin cell receptor site, and tell it to behave like a healthy, younger skin cell. They also act like an antioxidant that can interrupt the free radical damage process that causes signs of aging.

How does it work?

The retinol works to increase cell turnover, build collagen, improve discoloration, hydrate skin and reduce acne by replenishing your body of vitamin A. When you continue to use this ingredient over time, you’ll see an improvement in fine lines, wrinkles, tone, and texture since it’s strengthening your skin’s barrier. Your skin will be better able to defend against environment assault.

Things To Understand Before Purchasing

Sometimes, people are sensitive to retinol at first. It can cause mild skin irritation and if applied during the day, sunlight exposure can cause a burning sensation. This is why it is recommended to apply it at night. No need to worry because even sensitive skin can be trained to tolerate vitamin A derivatives.

Why You Want A Natural Retinol Product

When you combine the powerful nature of retinol with the soothing and nourishing nature of all natural ingredients, you will give your skin the best of both worlds. While your skin is being turned over and renewed with the retinol, natural ingredients like Vitamin E, Vitamin C, coconut oil, green tea, and shea butter will nourishing the deep layers of your skin. Coupling that with paraben, phthalates free ingredients that are vegan and cruelty free, and you are doing the best thing for your skin, health and the world.

Results Can Take Sometime

While some doctors and skin care professionals say that you can see results in as little as a few weeks, the reality is it can take months to see results. It is recommended to start using retinol products early and often to prevent skin damage and aging. It is definitely worth the investment to have healthy glowing skin.
