Retinol is a must have product in your skincare routine- No matter your age, gender, skin-type or stage of life. A Rejuvenating Retinol serum definitely has a place in YOUR skincare routine. Retinol is a great choice for many skin conditions - whether it's to reverse the signs of aging, help to clear acne or simply give your face a more radiant glow.
This powerful, anti-aging treatment boosts collagen production and cell turnover, reduces the appearance of hyperpigmentation, softens fine lines and wrinkles, treats acne, and improves skin texture. It’s a one-way ticket for treating a variety of skin concerns in one step!
What is Retinol?
Before we dive into how retinol works, we need to explain what it is. Retinol is a form of vitamin A or, more specifically, a type of retinoid which is derived from vitamin A. Retinol is one of those “powerhouse” ingredients which is extremely beneficial within your skincare routine and helps maximize your skincare results!
Vitamin A is an essential nutrient that comes in two types: retinoids and carotenoids. The human body is hard wired to convert both types into "Retinol" and either store it in your liver or transport it throughout the body- such as to your skin. When applied topically, Retinol can stimulate collagen production, increase skin cell turnover, and preventing clogged pores. Giving your skin an extra “boost” so that skincare products can penetrate and work within your skin.
What Age Should You Start Using Retinol?
An ideal time to start using Retinol would be when a patient is in their 20’s, but you can actually use it at any age since it has so many benefits. No matter your age, gender or skin type, Retinol is always started slowly and requires patience on your end. The product is to be used only at night and applied after cleansing. Retinol makes skin more sensitive to sunlight, so applying it at night is important.
Five Benefits of using a Rejuvenating Retinol Serum
#1 Treating Acne!
Retinol has an AMAZING ability to unclog pores, clear up the skin and prevent future acne outbreaks. For those with treatment-resistant acne, the use of Retinol helps reduce the amount of acne scars.
Scientifically speaking, Retinol is one of the most well-studied and used anti-aging skincare product ingredients on the skincare market. Some of the anti-aging effects include softening of the skin’s texture as well as reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
#3 It's Cost Effective!
Depending on your budget, spending on retinol may seem like an extravagance you cannot afford. However, spending on cheaper, short-term solutions may ultimately prove the pricier option in the end. Retinol is one of the only ingredients with consistent scientifically proven benefits, which makes it a pretty trustworthy investment for your facial future.
#4 Evening Skin Tone
One of the best aspects of retinol is that it stimulates skin cell turnover, which acts as an "exfoliating" effect. It helps arm your skin with increased levels of collagen and elastin. Dull and dry skin makes way for new, brighter, more even-toned skin. The thicker skin is stronger and smoother and has fewer overall imperfections. Thus, your skin can seriously benefit from using a rejuvenating retinol serum.
#5 Its Accessible!
Generally speaking, most people can use an over-the-counter retinoid. This lower dosage allows the skin to adjust to the product with a lower risk of irritation. It also has fewer side effects than a “true” prescription-strength retinoic acid. If you have any questions about Retinol dosage levels for your specific skin type and skin situation, please be sure you consult with your dermatologist or a physician.
How Often Should You Use a Retinol?
When first introducing Retinol into your skincare routine, you should start with once a week and then slowly increase use to twice weekly. You could start on a Monday night, then do Monday and Thursday night the next week and see how your skin responds. As skin gets used to the product, you can increase application to 3-4 times a week if your skin isn’t experiencing any signs of irritation. As for the amount, a small amount can go a long way. You can use up to 2 pea sized amounts on the face and neck applying it with upward strokes.
Keep in mind that your skin will go through an adjustment period when using a retinol product because of its strength. During the adjustment period, start with the weakest potency of retinol and slowly build your way up to a stronger strength. If you start to have an adverse reaction once you have begun the retinol, it is a sign your body can’t handle that strength. Meaning that you should go back down to the previous retinoid level or reduce the frequency.
Meanwhile, begin or continue to use a topical collagen product on the evenings that you are not using the retinol. By doing this you are providing your skin the help it needs to repair and heal while you sleep.
Did you know: The night is an ideal time to use these replenishing products because our cell turnover is faster at night, and this allows your products to do their job better. Meaning that your skin actually works harder to regenerate while you sleep!
