What Is Retinol and What Are the Best Ways To Use It?
Wouldn’t it be a dream come true if your pores would just automatically shrink? Well, while that’s not entirely possible, there is a way to change their appearance... How? By tightening them with the use of retinol. Retinol, comes in many forms but when being used as a topical treatment, it has proven to reduce the appearance of large pores by tightening up your skin, while effectively preventing acne and diminishing spots. This may sound like the answer to all your problems because it actually is! It essentially repairs and reverses the results of photodamaged skin.
What Are the Benefits of Retinol?
Retinol combats breakouts, fine lines, and wrinkles by increasing cell turnover and sloughing off dead skin cells in the process. That said, it's not quite that simple — it depends on the formula itself. Which is why recommend Lunova’s Retinol / Collagen Cream as your form of retinol. It’s made with all organic and natural ingredients, containing the exact amount of retinol needed to improve your skin.
Where does Retinol Come From?
Retinol comes from Vitamin A, which is the driving source behind the activation of your skin cells’ restoring abilities. When dermatologists or medical specialists speak about Retinol, they are essentially talking about vitamin A in a prescription. Unfortunately, our bodies do not naturally produce vitamin A, which is what gives you youthful, plump and elastic skin. The goal of retinol is to effectively fight against wrinkles, uneven skin tones, and acne. Retinol is an ingredient that ‘tells’ your skin cells how to repair itself by creating new and healthy cells. Therefore, when mixed in with other natural products that enhance its functionality you will achieve the skin you’ve always wanted.
For Best Results...
Firstly, wash face with Tomas's Balancing Cleanser and pat dry.
Gently apply Lunova's Retinol / Collagen Cream, avoiding direct contact with eyes.
For best results, apply morning and evening.
Let the cream dry before applying makeup or sunscreen.
For the best and most beautiful results it is ideal to use an exfoliant along with retinol. It is recommended to combine both products for fast results. We love applying the Lava Clay Mask by Nash and Jones two to three times a week before applying your nightly retinol. The clay mask gently exfoliates dead skin cells, while deeply cleaning facial pores, riding the skin of impurities. This powerful skin refiner leaves your skin so glowing and smooth, you’ll probably find you need less makeup when you use it regularly.
