As we age, our skin decreases collagen and elastic production, leading to fine lines, wrinkles, hollowing, and sagging skin. We also lose our ability to hold water and hydration in the skin, also known as TEWL (trans epidermal water loss). Ensuring that the skin receives proper exfoliation, as well as ultra-hydrating, nourishing, and anti-aging actives, can help slow-down as well as reverse the signs of aging, allowing us to win the battle against time – and with much more radiant skin!
One of the top skin care goals is to find an anti-aging product to reveal more youthful skin. Different anti-aging creams will claim that they will achieve youthful skin quickly and efficiently, promoting things like “the best face oil for anti-aging” or “if you use this product, you can restore youthful skin overnight.”
The market is chock full of youthful skin products and yet, only one important truth remains regarding anti-aging products and results. And that is retinol.
Retinol has been proven, time and time again, to provide real and rapid anti-aging results. Here at Doctor Cosmedical, we are committed to providing you efficient and scientifically supported skin care, and we can assure you, the science behind retinol and anti-aging doesn’t lie.
So how does retinol work? Retinol is what is called a retinoid and is a derivative of Vitamin A. The small particles of retinol penetrate the deeper layers of the skin, and rids the skin of free radicals, all while stimulating cellular turnover, which naturally increases collagen and elastin production. Cell turnover brings new, fresh cells to the dermis and epidermis, which allows the skin to appear fresh, supple, and smooth. The bonus to retinol is it also helps to treat acne, pigmentation, photoaging, and reduces the look of scars.
Luckily, we have two powerhouse products that contain retinol, helping you access youthful skin in a one-stop-shop. Our Retinol EyeRevive Cream and our 0.5% Retinol Serum are pure and effective, without any other fillers or additive products. Both are recommended to use at night, and we recommend starting slowly at first, to see how your skin reacts, as retinol is very active. And don’t forget daily sunscreen use when using retinol!
