A serum with Retinol to rejuvenate the skin
Retinol is a form of vitamin A widely used to treat and improve the skin. This antioxidant is known for the property of promoting the production of new skin cells and therefore rejecting old skin cells. Retinol has a strong effect, penetrates deep into the skin, stimulates the production of elastin and collagen, and is even able to reduce deep wrinkles. The perfect remedy for a rejuvenation cure, at least you might think.
However, never start using a serum with Retinol, but first, research what your skin needs. The strong effect of a serum with Retinol can cause your skin to become more sensitive to external factors such as sunlight. It is, therefore, preferable to use a serum with Retinol for the night and uses an excellent additional day cream in combination with sun protection during the day.
Retinol as an aid in the treatment of acne
Vitamin A is widely used in the treatment of acne-prone facial skin in the form of Tretinoin. These products, which contain a high percentage of vitamin A acid, should only be prescribed by a doctor or dermatologist. Important to mention, because the effect of Retinol on the skin has been proven to be effective. If you have a mild form of acne or suffer from acne residues such as small scars and skin discolorations, a serum with Retinol can help to make the skin more even and smoother. After all, Retinol counteracts clogging of the pores and thoroughly tackles existing sun damage in the form of pigment spots on the skin.
However, do not just start smearing, but keep in mind that your skin can react sensitively at the beginning of the treatment. If your skin becomes a little red after the first treatment, or if you see some flakes, skip a day. In addition to a serum with Retinol, use products that support the approach to the skin problem. Would you like to use a serum with Retinol, but you have reactive skin, take a look at hannah Asolution Serum. The active ingredient Granactive Retonoid reduces the risk of skin irritation while Ronacare AP actively protects the skin against UV radiation.
Retinol in combination with other antioxidants
Retinol, in combination with vitamin C, is particularly useful in combating skin aging. Deep wrinkles are visibly reduced while collagen production improves the skin's structure and elasticity. Yet there are very few brands that combine Retinol in serum with other antioxidants such as vitamin C and vitamin E. The ratio between the different substances and the way of packaging is very precise. Much more often, the different serums are used separately, such as with RevitalTrax® Serum Trio.
A popular product where it has been possible to combine Retinol is Nora Bode Absolute Effects Energy Reload. In this serum, you will find not only Retinol, but also vitamins C, E, and other antioxidants. If you are not sure whether a serum with Retinol is suitable for your skin, take a look at all the serums we sell. If you have sensitive skin with eczema or rosacea, a serum with vitamin C, such as Image Skincare Vital C - Hydrating Anti Aging Serum, is probably more useful.
Retinol, sun protection, and advice
A serum with Retinol as the active ingredient should always be combined with excellent sun protection. This can be done by using a day cream with a protection factor daily or by applying for UV protection in the form of milk, lotion, or cream. If you have sun-sensitive skin, or if you sweat a lot, which requires a high protection factor, take a look at Mineral Radiance SPF50. This is a sweat-resistant fluid with a tint that adapts to the color of your skin.
