It seems like every day I see ads everywhere for the next best “anti-aging” cure. It can be difficult to figure out the truth from fiction. There is nothing wrong with wanting to look your best, but with the deluge of information it can be overwhelming to know where to start, or what products are best.
Research has found that retinol, which is the name for what we know as vitamin A, has numerous truly beneficial benefits for skin. This superstar ingredient has a lot to offer and can be found in many beauty products today to, so here’s what you need to know.
Vitamin A is an extremely effective skin-transforming ingredient. Over 40 years of established research shows it can help to visibly increase the appearance of firmness, diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles, significantly improve uneven skin tone, smooth and refine the surface of skin.
When skin’s appearance is affected by environmental assault (and everyone’s skin is) or you have signs of aging, uneven skin tone, wrinkles, and a loss in the look of firmness, retinol steps in to minimize those concerns. Studies have clearly shown retinol naturally turns around how skin appears—which makes it one of the most exciting skincare ingredients in use today!
Even better, a retinol product, be it in the form of a serum, moisturizer, or targeted solution, is easy to work into your daily skincare routine. But here’s what most people don’t know, most over the counter beauty products containing retinol don’t have enough of the active ingredient in order to be effective. If you want to achieve anti-aging results (and who doesn’t?) a prescription strength beauty product containing retinol is best.
Most people have heard about the product, Retin A, which is a topical form of vitamin A. The downside of Retin A is that it isn’t easily tolerated by all clients and may make the skin sensitive both when Retin A is applied and in extreme weather. We prefer the SkinMedica products because we find our clients get better results with less side effects.
We also carry SkinMedica because it offers our clients 3 different prescription strengths of retinol creams, making it more effective reducing fine lines and wrinkles. For example, SkinMedica’s Retinol Complex 0.5 renews skin and diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Encapsulated in an antioxidant complex, skin tone and texture are improved.
The Lytera Skin Brightening System which includes 3 great products that work in synergy to brighten the skin. The retinol in the Skin Brightening System exfoliates the skin and helps reduce visible signs of aging.
