THE SECRETS OF 2.5% RETINOL
Retinol is not an overnight fad in skin care, it has been around for years and used in many different skin care product lines. Beauty Skin For Life uses 2.5% Retinol in its Skin Care Products because it is highly effective anti-aging ingredient but safe for daily use.
It is not synthetically created instead Retinol is naturally derived vitamin A. It is even found naturally in the body. It is usually added to other ingredients such as emollients and humectants created into creams and serums that can be applied directly to facial wrinkles.
“Retinol is an active compound of Vitamin A; along with retinal and retinoic acid. Like Beta- Carotene, retinol is a form of Vitamin A from plant and dairy foods such as milk, chicken, cheese, fish, yogurt, eggs, pumpkin, tomato, melon, kale, broccoli, mango, grapefruit, papaya, guava, carrots, spinach, peppers, and squash.
Retinol is a widely popular active ingredient in Anti-Aging beauty products. Highly concentrated Retinol creams are usually prescribed by professional dermatologists. You can pick up low concentrated forms of Retinol over the counter from drugstores, or local beauty stores.
Beauty Benefits of Retinol
- Prevents/slows down signs of Aging
Retinol reduces skin’s sensitivity to the sun, providing some natural protection against sun-induced redness and pigmentation. Also, protects skin from dangerous free radicals.
- Encourages healthy skin cell production
Retinol produces cell regeneration and growth; it stimulates fibroblasts—the cells responsible for developing tissue that keeps skin firm and healthy in the deep layers of your skin.
- Protects against infection
Retinol is like the immune system for your skin. It helps strengthen the skin’s barrier, protecting the complexion from harmful irritants that attempt to attack the surface.”
