You know I Loooovvve Retinol. Here's a great article I wrote dedicated to retinol. Enjoy!!
Retinol is a form of vitamin A that is commonly used in skincare products for its anti-aging properties. It is a more potent form of vitamin A than retinol and is often recommended for people with more severe signs of aging, such as deep wrinkles and fine lines.
When applied topically to the skin, retinol is converted into retinoic acid, which helps to stimulate collagen production and increase cell turnover. Collagen is a protein that is naturally found in the skin and helps to keep it firm and elastic, but its production decreases as we age, leading to wrinkles and sagging skin. By promoting collagen production, retinal can help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and improve skin texture and tone.
Retinol is also a powerful antioxidant, which means it helps to protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals, which are unstable molecules that can damage cells and accelerate the aging process. By neutralizing free radicals, retinal can help to prevent further damage to the skin and promote a more youthful, radiant complexion.
All in all retinol is used to help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots, as well as to promote collagen production for firmer, smoother skin. While using a high-quality retinal product can certainly improve the efficacy of the treatment, it's not necessarily true that you need to use a "high-end" retinal product in order to achieve good results.
What's most important when selecting a retinal product is to look for one that contains a stable and effective form of retinal, in a concentration that's appropriate for your skin type and concerns. which you can find here at the skincare studio
