With the arrival of Fall, days are shorter, sun exposure usually a little (or a lot !) less and longer afternoons and evenings create the perfect opportunity to dedicate a bit more time to our skin health and skincare. It is also a great time to introduce changes in your skincare routine because believe it or not but, over time, your skin “gets bored” with same products resulting in a diminished response. Therefore, Fall is the perfect time for introducing or adding new products to your routine. The goal is to make certain your skin is ready for the Holidays. Additionally, to address potential damage to your skin caused by aggravated acne, excessively oily skin and uncontrolled sun exposure that may occur during the summer months.
Retinol is one of the best-known skin care ingredients on the market which can help you to achieve all of these goals. Retinol is often very misunderstood. Retinods (also called Vitamin A derivatives) represent an umbrella name for a group of products containing retinol- a molecule that is found in nature particularly vegetables. Lipophilic in nature, once ingested it is stored in the liver and the skin. Retinol is used by dermatologists to correct many skin problems such as the signs of ageing, wrinkles, inhomogeneous complexion pigmentation disorders, and even acne and acne scars. Highly effective, yet sometimes less well tolerated by sensitive skin, it works by accelerating skin cell renewal and by reinforcing the skin’s structural network.
That said, retinols are not the same products as prescription products, which are more powerful. Also over the counter versions available such as retinaldehyde and retinyl palmate are not the same. https://www.acnease.com/products/rejuvel-3d-retinol-science.htm
Retinol has many potential skin care benefits, but there are side effects to consider, as well. Lets look into these more closely.
Retinol is a type of retinoid, which is made from vitamin A. It does not remove dead skin cells, as many other products for mature skin do. Instead, the small molecules that make up retinol go deep beneath the epidermis (outer layer of skin) to your dermis.
Once in this middle layer of skin, retinol helps neutralize free radicals. This helps boost the production of elastin and collagen the major components of skin. These proteins create a “plumping” effect that can reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, helps reduce enlarged pores, repairs acne scars and eliminates dark spots.
As we mentioned previously, there are different forms of retinoids. The most potent form usually only found in prescriptions is Retinoic Acid which directly reacts with the skin. Weaker forms of retinoids must go through some additional conversion stages before they can really interact with the skin and show any substantial effect.
Since Retinol affects the deeper layers of your skin it does not only smoothe the skin its activity minimizes future wrinkle development. By removing dead skin retinol helps to prevent formation of pimples by removing one major cause of acne, clogged pores, Finally,-by speeding up the turnover of skin cells retinol can help to remove scars and acne marks.
Until our early 30’s our skin cells turn over approximately every 28 days creating fresh, new skin. But after we reach our mid 30’s our cell regeneration process slows down and we “produce” the same new layer of skin over 50, 60, or 70 days and in some instances even slower. Retinol – the skin turnover stimulator actively boosts the younger skin capabilities by improving skin turnover .
Retinol is one of the ingredients that requires some patience and consistency. Retinol 3D is not only one of the most absorbent and potent forms of retinol it is also, the most non- irritating. Retinol 3D will produce improvement in acne spots, discolorations, fine lines and even reduce acne breakouts. An additional benefit of Retinol 3D is that it BRIGHTENS your skin within 3 weeks and shows clearly visible effects within 12 weeks. Rejuvel 3D also contains proprietary stem cell moisturizer that prevents redness, irritation and will amplify the results of the Retinol complex without sensitizing or drying your skin.
