Ingredient of the Month- Vitamin A (Retinol)
Do you know just how effective topical retinol is as an anti-ageing ingredient? We recommend the use of retinol serums to many of our patients because it helps with most aspects of skin health. If you want to fight fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, oxidation, glycation and loss of collagen- retinol is the answer. Combined with professional skin treatments and the right homecare products, retinol will lead you on the path to smoother, brighter, more youthful skin.
Vitamin A, or retinol, has been one of the most significant breakthroughs in cosmeceutical ingredients. Retinol serums are active night serums that are designed to absorb into your skin and enact real change on a cellular level. This translates to visual improvements over time- preventing and correcting sun damage and general ageing.
So what will retinol do for my skin? Long term use of retinol helps to reduce pigmentation, leading to a clearer complexion. Retinol also helps to balance the skin in terms of oil production, making it a great ingredient of acne sufferers. It is also essential for optimal collagen production- making it the best ingredient for fighting fine lines and wrinkles.
As well as all of these benefits, retinol also works behind the scenes to regulate many important cellular processes in the skin, so your skin functions better. And when your skin is functioning at its best, it looks its best. Patients who incorporate retinol serums into their homecare regimes will have smoother, brighter skin with an even tone and luminosity.
You get fewer breakouts and your skin adapts to heal better if you are run down, stressed or tired. We recommend retinol to many of our patients. We love O Cosmedics Potent Retinol Serum, as well as Aspect Dr and Cosmedix. When used correctly and in conjunction with your other cosmeceutical products, you will start to see your skin improve.
