When you want to stop your skin from aging, one of the best things you can do is enlist the help of vitamin A. IMAGE Skincare retinol is second to none and can be used year-round for extraordinary results. Here is some information about what benefits you can get from retinol and why you should keep using it during the warmer months of the year.
What Is Retinol?
Retinol is truly a dermatological research breakthrough. It is a vitamin A derivative that brings welcome changes to your skin, helping with:
- Dark spots
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Signs of aging
- Surface smoothing
Retinol is a gentle ingredient that works by encouraging cell turnover. It encourages collagen production so that younger, more radiant skin cells emerge. This makes your face appear much smoother and helps even out your pigmentation. And it boosts elasticity and targets any acne you may have, too.
Rumors persist that retinols should not be used during the summer. These rumors are false, since it is actually quite important to use it during the summer months. The reason is because retinol may have the potential to stop that dreaded photoaging process before it begins.
The summer months bring a lot of time in the sun. UV exposure often hinders collagen production, but use of a retinol actually reverses that by boosting it. Most importantly, retinols do not make the skin more prone to sunburn. Using your IMAGE retinol cream 12 months of the year allows you to reap the benefits all year long.
Where Can I Find Retinol?
The beloved and highly touted IMAGE skincare line produces a superb retinol cream to take you through the summer and beyond. IMAGE Skincare Ageless Total Retinol-A Creme is a game changer when it comes to putting the skids on the aging process. Without the use of parabens, phthalates or artificial fragrances, this physician-developed, aesthetician-approved magic helps to resurface and repair your face.
Use a dime-sized amount just 2 or 3 times per week. Be sure to apply it to a thoroughly cleansed face for best results.
Another option that has the same wonderful benefits is the IMAGE Skincare MD Restoring Retinol Creme with ADT Technology. With just one pump several times each week, this night cream allows you to wake up with a fresher-looking face. It greatly helps with the appearance of those dreaded fine lines and wrinkles thanks to its Advanced Delivery Technology.
Like all IMAGE products, this one was thoughtfully created with skincare professionals in mind. IMAGE painstakingly selects clean ingredients from raw materials that are proven to deliver results to your skin.
How Can I Benefit Most From Retinol?
In order to achieve maximum benefits from retinol, you want to make sure that your regular skin care routine gets your face in its best shape possible so you can take full advantage of it.
First, make sure you are using a good cleanser and exfoliator. By cleansing your skin daily, you are removing all of the dirt, grime, oil and debris that are clogging your pores. A clear face absorbs product better, and you can accomplish that with IMAGE Skincare Ageless Total Facial Cleanser. This is a great choice to supplement the IMAGE skincare retinol products that you use.
Then, be sure to wear sunscreen on a daily basis. This can be either a separate product or can be incorporated into your regular moisturizer such as the IMAGE Skincare Prevention Plus Daily Tinted Moisturizer SPF 30+.
Retinols often take several weeks to show improvement, so be sure to be consistent and persistent. After all, Rome wasn’t built in a day. And keep using it all summer long.
