Why use Retinol (Vitamin A)

Why use Retinol (Vitamin A)


Up until your early-30s, your cells turn over every 28 days, creating a fresh layer of untouched, pristine skin,” says dermatologist Mona Gohara, M.D., associate clinical professor at Yale University. “But after you hit your mid-30s, your cell regeneration slows down, turning over every 50, 60, or 70 days.” And that slower cell regeneration is what causes dry, dull, and wrinkled skin

START SLOWLY AND ADD ON GRADUALLY   Retinol, however, sinks into your skin and speeds up cell turnover, causing your body to churn out fresher, smoother skin again,” says Dr. Gohara.   Because Retinol cause skin to shed cells faster than normal, you may experience some reactions such as irritation, flakiness, dryness or breakouts, until your skin gets through the adjustment period.  That’s why professional suggested to use gentle formula and also to start slowly particularly if you have sensitive skin. That is, to apply Retinol once a week, twice a week and then add on gradually.

CONSISTNET APPLICATION    To get a long-term benefits, dermatologist Tobechi Ebede, M.D., clinical assistant professor in dermatology at Cornell, recommended that “You have to use these products most nights…  They are changing your skin, and if you don’t use them routinely, your skin will go right back to baseline.” It will take at least 2-3 months of consistent application to notice some reduction in fine lines, dark spots, and acne.

EFFECTIVE IN LONG RUN  There are many types of Retinol in the market, some are mild and some are strong and needed to be prescribed. Dermatologist Mona Gohara, M.D., associate clinical professor at Yale University suggested startling with the gentlest and moving up to higher strength over after a year. Regardless of what strength of Retinol you use, they’re all effective in the long run. Studies from National Library of Medicine show that you’ll reach the same long-term anti-aging effects over time with a low-strength or moderate-strength retinoid.
