Vitamin A For The Skin

The Secret To Brighter And fresher Looking Skin

Vitamin A and Retinol is my number one recommendation for women over the age of 30.  A lot of my patients seek my advice on what the best moisturiser is to use. The truth behind whether a topical product works or not comes down to the ingredients it’s packed with. Retinol – a derivative of Vitamin A, is a key ingredient when it comes to reversing the signs of aging and it is the Number 1 ingredient which has been PROVEN to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

As we age, our bodies lose vitamin A naturally, which is what helps create those signs of aging such as wrinkles and a dull complexion. But retinol can reverse this. Retinol and especially retinoic acid work to increase cell turnover, build collagen, improve discoloration, and treat wrinkles by replenishing the body of vitamin A.

Why do we need better quality collagen?

Collagen is one of the major building blocks of the skin keeping it looking firm and supple.  As we age the structure of the collagen fibres become disorganised and irregular, and due to normal wear and tear and break down we have reduced amounts. Retinol will help to stimulate you to grow more collagen in addition it will lay down the fibres in a manner which is more structured, flat and dense, instead of being spread out, disorganised and of lower quality.

Tricks the skin into thinking it is younger than it is…

Retinol essentially teaches aging skin cells how to behave like younger, healthier cells by encouraging them to turnover more rapidly.

Great for Acne prone skin

Retinoids are the most effective treatment for acne because of their ability to regenerate and heal the skin rapidly, so that you quickly have fresh looking skin.  Retinoids treat acne by unclogging pores, reducing inflammation and increasing skin cell exfoliation really improving acne prone skin

With continued use, retinol will:

  • Prevent ageing changes
  • Soften and prevent lines from forming
  • Lessen the look of wrinkles
  • Improves pore size
  • Encourage collagen production
  • Increase cell turnover
  • Brighten dull looking skin
  • Give the skin a smoother, more even-toned texture
  • Lessen brown spots

Simply put, if you want to beautify the skin, you need to find the best retinol product and commit to using it regularly.  Speak with your facial aesthetics practitioner to determine the best product for your skin.
