8. Consider Retinol
Perhaps you’ve heard about marvelous effect from using this ingredient. About 40 years ago retinol forerunner, named Retin-A, was used for acne treatment. Dermatologist discovered that retinol not only alleviate acne, but improve the general appearance. Retinol, or vitamin A, actually helps your skin repair itself faster and speeds the rate at which your skin grows. In other words, retinol causes skin to turn over faster so that you always have fresh, new skin cells on the surface rather than old, dry ones. Retinol also boosts collagen production, which can help to reduce wrinkles. You can see results in as little as two weeks with some products. Nowadays retinol is included to many beauty products like cream, sunscreen or foundation. This trick makes retinol less irritating to your skin.
However, there still exist argues between dermatologists and cosmetologists as for the safety of beauty products that contain retinol. Some reckon that you can use it all day long; others believe it can damage your skin. Anyway, you’d better not overdo with the agent – one portion before bed will be sufficient. Ideally, you should consult your dermatologist as for the expediency of using retinol. Moreover, forget about it during pregnancy and breast-feeding period.
