Retinol, a vitamin A derivative, is an amazing multi-tasker. It is a remarkable ingredient that knows exactly what your skin needs, helping reduce the signs of aging.
How exactly does retinol do this? It acts right on the skin cell’s DNA, and boosts the different functions of the cells which otherwise are bound to slow down by the time we hit the big three-o (30).
Backed by almost 80 years of research, retinol helps to visibly increase skin's firmness, diminish the look of wrinkles and fine lines, refine the skin's surface, and much, much more!
Retinol has the wonderful capacity to increase cell turnover, which simply refers to the ability of our skin to renew itself as the outer layer of the skin is shed off, and the inner layer is brought to the surface. In this sense, retinol is able to clear dead skin cells and other debris from the pores.
Retinol is able to make sure that what you see on the outside of your skin is healthy skin, and not dead skin cells. Retinol is also able to make the epidermis (outer layer of the skin) thinner, and at the same time strengthening and smoothening out the dermis (the inner layer of the skin) – which is exactly what you need if you want a skin that is healthy, firm, and bright.
But there are more to just these benefits. Retinol is also able to facilitate the production of collagen and prevent its breakdown, enabling them to work deep in the layers of the skin. As we know, collagen is what is able to keep the skin firm and supple. There is evidence, too, that retinol encourages the production of glycosaminoglycans, which are substances naturally produced in the body that are responsible for keeping the body’s tissues hydrated.
Also, retinol has been seen to decrease oil production —a great advantage to the skin types more prone to breakouts.
Most users report seeing the following benefits in their skin when using Retinol.
- Keep zits away and smooth out acne scars
- Diminish wrinkles and tightens skin
- Shrink pores and reduces deepness of forehead lines
- Responds well to acne-prone skin
- Gives your skin a smooth, nice glow
1.START SLOWLY IF YOU ARE A BEGINNER TO RETINOL
Instead of applying retinol daily, use it every other day, or every other three days if you have overly-sensitive skin. You may also mix it with your moisturizer and serum to check how your skin reacts. There are some who need to use retinol more frequently while others need to use it every other day.
2.THE REST OF YOUR SKINCARE PRODUCTS SHOULD BE GENTLE AND SOOTHING
Use a gentle cleanser, a calming toner, well-formulated moisturizers, plus serums that are loaded with hydrating, skin restoring ingredients and antioxidants to help your skin get the best benefits from retinol. Don’t know where to start? Check out YEOUTH’s complete anti-aging skincare range.
3. ALWAYS APPLY A BROAD SPECTRUM SUNSCREEN WITH SPF 30 OR HIGHER
You have to be extra diligent about sun protection to get the most out of your retinol therapy. Retinol can make your skin more sensitive when exposed to UV light.
This is why it is recommended to use Retinol only at night. Even the most proven, effective anti-aging product will not give you the desired results if you do not wear proper UV protection. Also, daily sunscreen use can help prevent premature skin aging, which is a welcome bonus.
4. COMPLIMENT RETINOL USE WITH OTHER SUPERSTAR INGREDIENTS
Retinol is wonderful for all skin types, but all of us need more than one powerful ingredient to look and feel our best. You need a great mix of beneficial ingredients for it to thrive!
5. BUY A RETINOL PRODUCT PACKAGED IN AN OPAQUE CONTAINER THAT MINIMIZES LIGHT EXPOSURE
All vitamin A forms deteriorate or break down when exposed repeatedly to light and air.
Remember that retinol is inactivated upon contact with light, so to get the best results, they are ideally applied right before bedtime. There is truth to the widely known concept that sunlight degrades retinoids, making them less effective overtime. This is exactly why they are usually packaged in opaque bottles and tubes.
You can actually use retinol during the day too – it will still be as effective, provided that you use a good SPF product together with it.
Research has also shown that retinol and vitamin C work well together to provide increased protection to the skin from the harmful UV rays if they are complemented with the use of SPF. The same is true for the combination of retinol and vitamins A, C, and E.
This is why sunscreen is considered to be a vital defense against the early signs of aging such as wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and a loss of firmness. Yes, retinol is able to effectively work its magic in broad daylight, just make sure you complement it with sunscreen – plus, make sure it has an SPF rate of 30 or greater.
Any professional product like retinol has to be used in a supportive complete skin care routine for best results. This is particularly important with retinol used on sensitive skin.
Also, retinol can make skin more sun sensitive, so sun protection products have to be taken into consideration too. Using one product alone is not as powerful as using supporting products if you want good results.
The YEOUTH Complete skin care range is a perfect support system to support your retinoid therapy. Use it in conjunction with YEOUTH's Retinol Serum.
Supplying your skin with healthy nutrients is a crucial aspect in any proactive anti-aging regimen. Your choice of skincare should help keep your skin protected from harsh environmental factors and damaging free radicals.
