Anti-aging skincare must-have: Retinol

anti-aging-skincare-must-haveEveryone is looking for it…the Fountain of Youth.

While most of us know such a thing doesn’t exist, the good news is 80% of how you age is actually in your control! I covered this topic a few months ago here.

So if we’re in control of a good bit of how we age, how do we maximize those results?

Nearly every dermatologist and skincare expert will tell you to incorporate retinol into your skincare regimen. This power-packed ingredient is considered the gold standard when it comes to reducing the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, sun damage, large pores, dull skin, acne scarring, and more. Retinol improves skin’s firmness and elasticity, while also encouraging cell turnover to improve skin texture and make skin appear brighter.

Some experts may recommend a prescription retinoid like Differein, Tazorac, Renova, or Retin-A. While this version of retinol may be stronger, it may not be better. Some retinoid users can experience itching and dryness due to the higher concentration. Additionally, many of these retinoids come packaged in an applicator tube which is easily exposed to oxygen and light and can actually degrade the retinol in the product.

If you’re looking to incorporate retinol into your anti-aging skincare routine, a lesser concentration in a more stable, non-irritating formula will offer improved results with consistent use over time without the irritation, dryness, and flaking some people may encounter from prescription doses.

In addition to retinol, other helping anti-aging ingredients you should be incorporating into your daily skincare routine include sunscreen, glycolic acid, peptides, and acetyl glucosamine.

I’ve been using retinol in my morning and nightly skincare routine for the last 3 years and my skin has never looked better. If you’re curious to know the anti-aging products that have helped me and thousands of others turn back the hands of time, shoot me a message.
