Learn why Retinol is the #1 skincare ingredient you must use

Retinol #1 skincare ingredients

Retinol – Why experts say it is a Must Have Skincare Product…

What is Retinol?

A vitamin A derivative that unclogs pores, boosts collagen to reduce fine lines, and speeds cell turnover to even out discoloration and smooth the skin.

Why use a Retinol?

Don’t just prevent future damage – CORRECT past damage with Retinol – one of the best age-fighting products available.

Retinol SuperstarSome Benefits of Retinol are:

  • Exfoliates the epidermis
  • Cleans sebum (oil) and dead skin from pores, which improves acne – regular acne and hormonal acne (chin acne)
  • Increases collagen production
  • Thickens the dermis, which provides a better barrier to the environment
  • Increases the water content of the skin for a more youthful appearance

For best results, any form of vitamin A/retinol should be used with other anti-aging products. Despite retinol’s superstar status, treating signs of aging is far more complex than any one ingredient can address!

Retinol vs. Retin-A?

Retinol is a natural form of vitamin A which converts to retinoic acid on the surface of the skin. Retin-A is retinoic acid, a synthetic derivative of vitamin A, and considered pharmaceutical.

How do I choose which one to use?

During your appointment, your patient coordinator will help you find the most appropriate retinol for your skin and she will discuss how it should be incorporated into your skin care program.

It is very important to use as directed and slowly acclimate your skin, as it may cause irritation such as redness and flaking if used improperly before your skin has built up a tolerance. Different types of skin react differently with Retinol, and most importantly how to apply Retinol can make a huge difference in the outcome. At Rejuvent, we can prescribe the right one for your skin, give you tips on best practices to build a tolerance and which products you should use to achieve your desired results.

Do you really need Glycolic Acid?

Why do you need glycolic acids

Do you need Glycolic acid?

Is Glycolic Acid Really Necessary?

Yes, you do. It does more than just exfoliate…

Glycolics MoleculeWhat is a Glycolic Acid?

Glycolic acid is a fundamental ingredient in a complete skin care maintenance program that will keep your skin healthy throughout the years. Derived from sugar cane, it is the most beneficial Alpha-Hydroxy-Acid (AHAs) used in skin care.

On the surface, Glycolic Acid “unglues” the dead skin cells for gentle exfoliation. As it has the smallest molecular structure of all Alpha-Hydroxy acids (AHAs), Glycolic Acid has the greatest penetration potential. Inside the cell, it stimulates the collagen and elastin fibers in the dermis, improving the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and other forms of sun damage.

Why use a product with Glycolic Acid?

Much more than just exfoliation.

Some Benefits of Glycolic Acid are:

  • Exfoliates the epidermis
  • Increases collagen production in the dermis
  • Increases the water content of the skin for a more youthful appearance.

Depending on how it is used, Glycolic Acids can make retinols less effective or cause irritation to the skin, so it is important to know when and how to use products with Glycolic Acid.

Call us today to add products with Glycolic Acid to your skin care regimen. Or shop online at RejuventSkincare.com
