Vitamin A In Skin care

Retinol is hugely beneficial in the skin cell turnover. The skins metabolism or reproduction as it were. With ageing the skin cells reproduce slower than when you were younger. Your skin will always need a set amount of cells so as you remove the surface dead skin cells from the epidermis the cells will push up the newer skin revealing brighter younger looking skin. If we increase the skins metabolism with retinol you will see this more youthful appearance lasting longer.

Retinol can be applied daily, best in the evening. You will need a suncream in the daytime to prevent Pigmentation forming or darkening and to help protect against the accumalative ageing, uv damage . In stronger uv you may also find skin a little more sensitive, tight or reactive than without Retinol. Hence the need to read my other regional blogs so you can ensure you are safely using the correct amounts! 😉
