RETINOIDS  and the fountain of youth

RETINOIDS and Anti-Aging Skin Care

Retinoids are a product that is an important one to include to be proactive for youthful appearance. Who doesn’t want to put their best face forward ?  When retinoids turn over the skins’ cells they promote healthy skin.  Retinoids are used to  minimize the appearance of wrinkles, bolster skin’s plump youthful and elastic appearance, and lighten brown spots caused by sun exposure. Retinoids are Vitamin A also unclog pores.  Results vary depending on the strength and how often used.  I usually advise clients when starting off any strength they should apply every other night as there is USUALLY an adjustment or ugly phase. Vitamin A/ retinoids can inflame the skin where it becomes sensitive, red and peeling.  After a week or two, you can reevaluate the times used per week to either stay the same, increase, or decrease as tolerated. Retinoids need to be applied at night as this is a photosensitive product. Therefore,  sunblock needs to be used during the day.  I advise my clients to stay out of the sun during 11am -2pm because of intensity of the sun. If they don’t or are going to be in the sun, a hat is desirable too.
