Retinol…a word most women will hear at some point as they age. What is a retinol, and why is it so talked about? Retinol is part of the Vitamin A family. Your body needs Vitamin A to support bone health and immune system strength. Since Vitamin A isn’t naturally produced in our bodies, we need to get it from food like sweet potatos, and dark leafy greens. Vitamin A intake is important for our bodies. Your skin, however, is the last organ of your body to get any leftover Vitamin A, which means the Vitamin A that we consume isn’t going to actively combat the signs of aging.
Bring in the Retinol! Applying Vitamin A in the form of Retinol is the best way for your skin to get the benefits that Vitamin A has to offer. Professional skin care companies use retinol in lieu of other Vitamin A sources because it is more stable, and your skin readily converts it into the active form of Vitamin A, Retinoic Acid. Faster retinol conversion due to more powerful ingredients, makes it so your skin gets the most out of the product.
Incorporating a retinol product into your nighttime routine, multiple times a week, will reduce fine lines, wrinkles, breakouts and discoloration in the skin and give you a healthier, more glowing complexion. Any and everyone can use and benefit from adding a retinol treatment into their skincare routine.
