WHEN YOU’RE YOUNG, skin cells continuously renew themselves, which
keeps your skin looking smooth. As time passes, however, your skin’s ability
to renew itself gradually slows down. Skin loses its elasticity and wrinkles
become more evident.
Is it possible to stimulate the skin’s renewal process to keep it looking
younger and healthier? Skin experts believe that Retinol, a pure form of vitamin
A, is very effective in achieving this.
Vitamin A’s importance to vision and bone growth has been well established for a long time. In its pure form, vitamin A can penetrate the outer layers
of the skin and work to repair the lower layers. In doing so, it smoothes wrinkles
and lines and increases moisture and elasticity in the skin.
Research has shown that taking certain steps can increase the effectiveness of Retinol. Here are some suggestions.
Start early. If possible, begin using a Retinol product in your late 20s to early
30s. Early use can actually help to combat fine lines and wrinkles before they
become apparent, so your skin stays looking younger and healthier.
Start slowly. Using Retinol is like exercising. Begin by applying a small
amount (a little goes a long way) every other day for about two weeks. After
two weeks, you may begin applying Retinol more frequently until you find the
best routine for your skin.
Stick with it. The benefits of Retinol are seen over time. It’s important to be
consistent with usage. If you happen to experience minor skin irritation, this
may be temporary while your skin adjusts to the product.
Protect your skin. Whether you use a Retinol product during the night or day,
always remember to wear a sunscreen of SPF 15 or higher during the day. A
