Are you beginning to notice lines around your mouth or on your forehead? If so, you might benefit from using Retinol. This derivative of Vitamin A helps to increase skin thickness and promote new collagen synthesis, while helping to prevent the breakdown of existing collagen, thereby helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, even pigmentation, and increase skin elasticity and firmness. Studies show that Retinol works well with NeoGlucosamine® to increase the skin's hydrating gel matrix, helping build volume from the inside out for plumper, firmer skin. Its antioxidant properties also help fight free radicals which contribute to aging.
If you are looking to fight signs of aging with Retinol during the daytime, be sure to use a product that contains a broad spectrum sunscreen as this potent ingredient can increase skin's sensitivity to the sun. Exuviance Day Repair SPF 30 has both of these benefits in one as well as NeoGlucosamine®. If you prefer to use Retinol in a night cream, such as NeoStrata Renewal Cream, it is still important to slather on sunscreen during the day.
BONUS: Retinol helps to reduce the intensity of dark spots and can be a good alternative for those looking to brighten skin without the use of harsh bleaching agents. Exuviance OptiLight Tone Corrector uses Retinol, Turmeric and NeoGlucosamine® to help correct uneven skin and brighten spots.
