Experts disagree on many issues but not on this one. Yes! Retinol is your best ally to improve ageing and sun damaged skin.
Did you know it was discovered in 1971 when tretinoin (retinoids) was prescribed to treat acne?
Since then, topically applied retinol has been the cosmetic active ingredient with the highest number of medical and scientific studies supporting its efficacy in reducing the most common signs of skin ageing.
Vitamin A (retinol), thanks to its antioxidant action, prevents cells from ageing prematurely by fighting free radicals. It also stimulates collagen production, helping to give you more even, blemish-free, youthful skin.
Take note of the highlights of retinol:
– Anti-ageing efficacy
– Cell renewal
– Collagen and elastin production stimulator
– Blemish reducer
Your skin needs time to adjust to its use. Depending on the concentration and the skin type this period may take a few weeks or a few days. To start, it’s usually recommended applying once or twice a week, then on alternate days and so progressively extend its use until your skin gets completely used to it.
The usual retinol concentration on cosmetics ranges from 0,1 % to 1,0 %. Our #silkelixir contains 0,15% retinol and it’s special because it:
- Helps to prevent wrinkles.
- Boosts cell renewal.
- Improves skin hydration and texture.
- Prompts the production of hyaluronic acid.
- Regulates sebum or grease production.
- Is specially recommended for ageing skin.
While using #silkelixir, don’t forget to use a FPS 30 or higher. It’s important to bear in mind that sun exposure is the main responsible agent for skin damage.
At #labelistcosmetics we absolutely surrender to the power of retinol and join the millions of fans it has around the world. Such an amazing discovery!
