Retinol is the super hero in the skin care industry. It has the power to reduce wrinkles and fine lines together alongside other invaluable benefits. Using products with retinol will delay premature ageing and lead to a younger looking skin.
What is retinol?
It is a byproduct of vitamin A - one of the most powerful ingredients in skin rejuvenating and approved by the FDA for use in the treatment of wrinkles.
In cosmetics it is known as retinoid acid, in skin care products as retinol that causes peeling, leaving the skin smooth, healthy and firmer. “Retinol boosts collagen and elastin production, and cell regeneration”, explains Mrs. Orly Sagui, chief trainer at Christina Cosmeceuticals. In the past, the only way to deal with wrinkles and skin imperfections was to conceal them under makeup or resort to plastic surgery.
Today there is a game changer that works miracles on skin texture, glow and fine lines blurring. Retinol boosts cell regeneration, fights free radicals (bacteria, air & environmental pollutants), protecting the skin and strengthening the defense system. It makes the skin appear firmer and glowing in the morning if is left on the skin overnight.
Who needs retinol?
At 25+ it prevents and delays early, first signs of ageing - fine lines.
At 35+, after constant use over time, it boosts cell regeneration, treats wrinkles and fine lines, firming the skin.
On oily, acneic skin, retinol prevents black heads, reduces pores, blurs post acne scars thanks to its peeling properties. In the case of severe acne, seek the advice of a physician. In any event, use of retinol-based products should be gradual, so that no irritation or dryness worsen the skin inflammation.
