Why Retinol is such a workhorse in your skin care regimen?

Wednesday, December 6, 2017 - 4:28am

As we age our cycle of cell production slows down to about 45-60 days in our 40's and 50's and further slow down to 60-90 days in our 50's and 60's. Retinol is a vitamin A derivative that has been used for anti-aging and acne clients for years. Retinol stimulates the metabolism of skin cells and encourages collagen production. Retinol is much gentler when absorbed within the skin and it’s converted into tretinoin (the acid form of vitamin A, also known as retinoic acid).

Retinol addresses all your anti-aging concerns like fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and dryness. It also helps prevent breakouts, clogged pores, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation from blemishes. With all this magic, who doesn’t want to control acne, have brighter more youthful skin.
