What is retinol?
Retinol is a vitamin A derivative that has multiple benefits to your skin. There are also stronger or prescription strength products called retinoids such as tretinoin or retin-A. Retinol and other retinoids stimulate cell turnover in your skin. This helps get rid of dead skin cells that accumulate on the surface of your skin. For younger people, this can clog pores and cause acne breakouts, so retinols work great for acne, especially for maintenance and prevention. As you age, your skin growth cycle slows down. This leads to the buildup of dead skin cells on the surface of your skin that can be seen under a microscope. To the naked eye this type of skin looks dull and lacks radiance. Retinol will get rid of these dead skin cells, making your skin look and feel smoother.
There are many different brands of retinol that you can get over-the-counter at a pharmacy. The Alastin Renew Retinol is unique because it’s only sold through doctor’s offices. That’s because the Alastin Renew Retinol has additional ingredients to further benefit your skin. When you start a retinol product, as your skin exfoliates, it can get red, dry, or irritated. The Alastin Renew Retinol has ingredients to prevent this from happening. For example, the Alastin Renew Retinol contains silver mushroom extract, which will hydrate your skin and prevent the dryness and irritation. The Alastin Renew Retinol also contains oat extract which will calm irritated skin. The retinol in the Alastin Renew Retinol is delivered in a microscopic lipid capsule, this helps the retinol penetrate into your skin more, making it more effective. In addition, the Alastin Renew Retinol contains co-enzyme Q-10, a powerful antioxidant, as well as another antioxidant called hdrdoxymethoxyphenyl decanone. These strong antioxidants will help prevent the sun from damaging your skin. So the Alastin Renew Retinol contains many additional ingredients to help your skin look even better.
The Alastin Renew Retinol is easy to use and comes in a pump tube. Apply one pump to clean dry skin at night time. If your skin is sensitive, you can start by using it once or twice a week. Your skin will gradually adjust and you’ll be able to slowly use it more frequently, and eventually every night. The Alastin Renew Retinol is non-comedogenic (won’t cause acne breakouts), hypoallergenic, paraben-free, gluten-free, and cruelty-free. The Alastin Renew Retinol will soon be available in the office at A E Skin. For now, you can get it on the online store.
