Since the FDA approved the first topical retinoids for acne and tretinoin for wrinkles in 1971, many women have befriended this Vitamin A derivative as part of their regular skin-care regimen. Years of research and extensive studies have shown retinoids are the superstar ingredient that is the cure-all for your skin problems.
Prescription brands like Tazorac, Retin-A, Ziana, Atralin, and over the counter retinol fortified skin creams like Neutrogena Healthy Skin Night Cream, Olay Professional Pro-X Deep Wrinkle Treatment are some of the known retinoids available in the markets that are used widely.
Check out these five excellent reasons on why you need retinoids and see what you are missing!
Fine Lines, Wrinkles and Aging
With the kind of publicity that these receive today, it is no surprise that every second cream and gel focuses on reducing the ravages of time. However, the only types of topical creams that prove to do so, backed by years of research are retinoids.
They stimulate the two main components of your skin dermis, to boost the production of collagen and hyaluronic acid to make your skin firmer and fuller. Simultaneously, they slow down the age related loss of crucial skin components, preventing the formation of more fine lines and wrinkles.
Retinoids are great exfoliators. Regular use of retinoids helps in increasing the radiance of your skin by sloughing off dead surface skin cells to reveal smoother textured skin, younger and healthier skin keeping it glowing.
Even Skin Tone
Retinoids help fade hyperpigmentation patches of sun damage, marks and blemishes on the skin due to cuts, bites or acne or even uneven skin tone. Retinoids speed up the process of natural skin replenishment, giving you a healthy even skin tone faster.
Retinoids were initially used for treating acne. However, dermatologists noticed that their acne patients had fewer wrinkles and fine lines. That is how they developed retinoids for anti-aging as well.
Apart from exfoliating dead skin cells that clog pores and cause acne, regular retinoid use also decreases the production of oil in the skin, thus, providing a two-way attack on the formation of acne.
Retinoids are a great investment altogether. Since they slough-off the top dead skin layer, revealing younger skin, your skin absorbs any other skin product you use more effectively. This helps in enhancing the effects of other skin products.
Retinoids give the best bang for your skin-care buck. So now, what’s stopping you from becoming a retinoid fan?
