Why You Need Retinol in Your Skincare Routine

You have likely heard of Retinol a hundred times, as it is a powerhouse in the skincare industry. But if you haven’t started using it yet, we are here to tell you why you should start!

Retinol is the #1 dermatologist-recommended over-the-counter anti-aging solution for its ability to speed up skin renewal and reduce the signs of aging. It is a form of synthetic Vitamin A that works to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, dark spots, and signs of aging. You will find it as the star ingredient in many of the most popular anti-aging products on the market.

As you age, skin cell renewal slows. With regular use of Retinol, you will see a boost in skin renewal and younger, healthier looking skin. This does take time and consistent use, but the results are worth it!

You’ll find retinol as a star ingredient in many over-the-counter anti-aging products in lower concentrations (starting at .01%), while prescription-strength retinoid creams and serums will have at least .5 to 1%. For better results, that is why we recommend our medical grade skincare products. We will also advise you on the proper quantity and frequency to ease into a Retinol and reduce side effects such as dryness and flaking.

In our spa we have several Retinol products in order to find the best product for every skin type. We carry the best in the industry from ZO Skin Health and Skinbetter Science.
