VITAMIN A OVERVIEW

Retinol is a form of Vitamin A, which is responsible for treating signs of ageing like wrinkles and fine lines. Retinol helps increase cell turnover and as a result stimulates collagen production. This means new skin cells are formed and old, dull skin is replaced faster. When using any retinol products, high protection sunscreen should be used



What are the benefits of retinol?

Retinol helps exfoliate dull skin, fights acne, smoothes wrinkles, slows down the ageing process, and fades acne scarring to reveal a radiant complexion.



What can you not mix with Retinol?

It is not recommended to mix Retinol with Benzoyl Peroxide, Alpha Hydroxy Acids, Beta Hydroxy Acids and Vitamin C. Mixing Retinol with exfoliating acids may result in skin dryness and further irritation.


How do I use Retinol in my skincare routine?

Retinol is added to many skincare products, including moisturisers, oils and serums. It is best to use a serum with Retinol for best results as the serum is able to better penetrate the skin. As Retinol makes the skin more sensitive to the sun, it is recommended to use it at night time and use a broad spectrum sunscreen in the day time.
