How Does Retinol Work?
(Warning, you may have to put your “science buff” goggles on…) Retinol, described as a cell communicating ingredient and antioxidant allows the retinoic acid and skin cells to function normally through communication through the skin cells’ receptor sites. Basically when retinol is introduced to the body the skin cells convert the retinol into a retinoic acid that signals skin cells to act as if it was a healthy young skin cell.
Retinol encourages the production of collagen. As collagen is replenished and old skin cells are shed, hyperpigmentation disappears, fine lines recede and skin begins to reveal a brighter, smoother texture.
Through the Grapevine…
A common myth is that retinol will make the skin sun sensitive.
The skin does not turn sun sensitive, it is the actual product that is sun sensitive. To make the maximum potential of your retinol, it is best to apply before bed.
Another misconception of using retinol as a topical skincare regimen really derives from the lack of knowledge of how to use the retinol.
The Solution: Develop a plan. With any skincare regimen it is imperative to work with your skincare professional, especially when using retinols. This helps determine the correct path for you to take.
