Comments Off on RETINOL, THE “GOLD STANDARD” IN SKIN CARE
Retinol – it is the top pick among dermatologists and aestheticans for healthy skin care. It should be an important part of your “anti-aging skincare team.”
Retinol (Vitamin A) is a multi-tasking ingredient, powerful for skin healing and improvement. It can revitalize skin beautifully while healing it.
What are the top benefits of using Retinol?
Improves Skin Tone and Quality
Minimizes Pore size
Lightens Age Spots
Combats Adult Acne
Encourages New Collagen Production
Retinol is widely tested and researched, and was “discovered” more than 80 years ago. When it was first approved by the FDA in 1971 (Retin-A), it was aimed at treating acne – but doctors soon discovered the anti-aging qualities. Patients wrinkles and lines were diminishing, among other things.
However, early Retinol was quite harsh and skin often became irritated and flaky. Great strides have occurred over the years to improve, develop and stabilize Retinol, and it was added to many skin care products. Less irritation can occur.
Retinol should mainly be used at night since it can break down in sunlight. Some newer compounds say that the Retinol can be used during the day, but we prefer to recommend night use nevertheless (following many doctor’s opinions).
The Sublime Beauty Retinol Serum with Vitamin C is a non-irritating, silky formula that is a pleasure to use. Retinol is at an effective but not harsh 1% and Vitamin C is at 5%. Vitamin C is a wonderful antioxidant, one of the best vitamins for skin! Researchers have shown that collagen needs Vitamin C for synthesis. Vitamin C wipes out free radicals and is a top anti-oxidant and healer. The combination of two powerful ingredients delivers results!
Apply 1 or 2 pumps to skin nightly, before applying any night cream or moisturizer. And that’s it!
