Vitamin A is for Anti-Ageing.
Want to know what the best anti-ageing ingredient is for your skin? (YAAAS?!).
Simple answer…Retinol (Vitamin A).
The skincare industry is constantly transforming and can at times feel like you need some sort of biochemistry degree to get your head around the latest, must-have active ingredient. But to make things easy for you, the ingredient better known as Retinol (essentially Vitamin A) is basically the holy grail in skincare, with the clinical evidence to back it up.
Originally formulated for the treatment of acne, users experienced not only an improvement in their congested complexion, but also enjoyed more clarity and tone.With further research it was proven to have huge anti-ageing benefits too.
Vitamin A is basically the wonder ingredient we all need to ensure we include in our skincare routine, from around the mid to late twenties onwards. It’s suitable for most skin types, with varying strengths available. There are a few exceptions, if you have sensitive skin proceed with caution. (perhaps patch test a very low, entry level and only use once a week – it’s definitely worth seeking medical advice if you’re unsure).
A need to know - apply your Retinol product in the evening and don’t leave the house without your SPF. Vitamin A increases our skins sensitivity to UV rays.
To keep things simple, what you need to know is that Vitamin A addresses many skincare concerns. It helps to cut down on breakouts and reduces pore size and pigmentation. It visibly increases firmness, diminishes fine lines and soften wrinkles. Want more? (Always!). It speeds up cell renewal and boosts collagen production (that lovely springy support system of our skin).
