Most people’s skin would benefit from a boost, particularly if it suffers from fine lines and wrinkles. Fortunately, the latest retinol-rich products can help significantly improve aging skin. Find out how they work with this excerpt from Skincare-News.com’s latest article, “Top 5 Ways Retinol Can Help Your Skin.”
1. Retinol stimulates cell turnover. Exfoliating is essential for youthful-looking, healthy skin. By removing dead skin cells, new, healthier cells are able to come through. The complexion also looks smoother and products are able to sink deeper into the skin. This way, skin can effectively absorb potent ingredients. With a pile of dead skin cells acting as a barrier, products are less likely to penetrate the top layer of the skin and fail to provide optimal results.
2. Retinol addresses acne. While retinol works to reduce telltale signs of aging, it also treats skin suffering from acne breakouts. Adult acne is common, affecting 50 percent of women. Dealing with both aging and acenic skin can be particularly distressing. Fortunately, because of retinol’s exfoliating benefits, it can help treat acne. Dead skin cells can clog pores and contribute to acne. By getting rid of dead skin cells, retinol improves and prevents breakouts.
3. Retinol is less irritating than retinoids. Also a vitamin A derivative, retinoids are only available by prescription from a dermatologist. Though they’re more potent than their over-the-counter counterparts, retinoids are also more irritating to the skin with potential side effects like peeling and redness. Retinol is gentler because it gradually converts to retinoic acid, which is the active ingredient in prescription treatments. Some people simply can’t tolerate retinoids. Retinol is ideal for these individuals, along with anyone with sensitive or easily irritated skin and those trying retinoids for the first time. Plus, retinol can pave the way to retinoids, because it helps skin get used to retinoic acid.
