Beauty In The Bottle: What You Need To Know About Retinol

You've probably heard this name more than once. This is one of the TOP ingredients in modern care cosmetics, such as Niacinamide or Hyaluronic Acid. Let's take a closer look at what it is and why it is so popular.

What Іs Retinol

Retinol, also called vitamin A1, is a fat-soluble vitamin in the vitamin A family. Retinol is the gold standard for youth preservation (anti-aging) in skincare because it is the only scientifically proven ingredient that effectively stimulates the production of collagen while also being extremely effective against acne.

As effective as Retinol is when it comes to reversing damage, how you apply it can affect the results you see. Because this product can cause skin to dry out and sometimes turn red.

It also often combined with other ingredients to help tone, soften, and soothe acne-prone skin. So whatever your skin issues are, slowly adding a retinol product to your routine can’t hurt.

How Often to Apply Retinol

For the beginning start by applying a pea-size amount of Retinol to your entire face every other night. Remember that it takes several weeks for your skin to adjust to the product, so it’s best to use it sparingly at first and gradually increase your use as time goes on.

If your skin becomes dry or irritated, try to apply every third night and so on. Each skin is unique, there is no universal way.

What To Expect When Using Retinol

Skin cells are programmed to develop and make their way to the skin surface over two weeks, and then shed over two weeks. This process can slow down as skin ages and cells are often retained in the top layers, leaving skin dull, flaky, clogged. The application of Retinol ensures that skin cells mature and shed as they are supposed to.

More is not more when it comes to Retinol—you must use these products as they are directed to be used. You cannot use retinol as a spot treatment, and you will regret doubling up on the product with the hopes that it will work faster. It won’t.
