When you’re looking for antiaging remedies, you’ll hear the word Retinol come up often. Let’s take a closer look at why this powerhouse ingredient is so important and what it can do for you when it comes to wrinkles while helping your skin look its best.
Retinol is a Vitamin A (A1 to be precise) and has the ability to help your skin. This specific version of Vitamin A is highly touted by dermatologists and is added to most skin care products that focus on anti-aging properties because it works so well.
Did you know that Retinol can be derived from plants? While there are chemically induced versions of retinol, they can be harsher to the skin. We only use natural retinol so you get the same great benefits without irritating your skin.
It can be confusing, but it’s important to understand that retinol and retinoids are different strengths of a similar ingredient. Retinoids are prescription strength. You won’t find them in regular skin care products. Retinol is the strength that’s safe for your skin without a doctor’s care. If you choose something too strong, it’s not good for you and can damage your skin if it’s not used properly.
Let’s go back to the benefits of Retinol. At the cellular level, retinol can made changes to the cells. This is a rarity, as many ingredients don’t have that full effect. As we get older, our collagen production slows down, but Retinol can help regenerate collagen production. Collagen is what gives us elasticity and a youthful look. Retinol also helps your skin retain its natural moisture while helping its tone and color.
One thing to point out is that if you’re using a Retinol treatment, avoid direct sunlight for a short bit after applying, because it can create more sun sensitivity. Another important factor to point out is that when you’re applying retinol products to your skin, it’s important to apply it to dry skin. So, after you’ve cleansed your skin and during your skincare routine, be sure to pat your skin dry before you apply your retinol products, such as our Advanced Retinol Serum. If you apply retinol to damp skin, there’s more chance of irritation because of how it absorbs. Dry skin will alleviate this situation.
When it comes to Retinol and its anti-aging properties, it’s well documented.
At Dirran Organic, we have both an Advanced Retinol Serum and an Advanced Retinol Moisturizer.
We highly recommend only using one retinol product at a time, so you don’t become overly sensitive. Let’s look closer at what each product offers.
Advanced Retinol Serum is 98% Naturally Derived and 72% Organic. We care about the ingredients we use in our skincare, so you know you’re only getting the best. Some of the main ingredients that we combine with retinol to give you the best product possible are Wheat Germ Oil and Green Tea Leaf Extract.
What do these other ingredients provide? Wheat germ oil helps build collagen while infusing 23 different nutrients to your skin. This is often used for age-defying boost repairs, while also helping to heal and prevent scarring. Green tea leaf extract offers antioxidant EGCG. This helps rejuvenate skin cells, and protects and repairs them.
Our Advanced Retinol Moisturizer is a great choice if you’re not in the market for a full serum, which is an extra dose of nutrients delivered in a treatment. You get the benefits of retinol in a moisturizing cream for your face. With Horsetail Plant Extract and Witch Hazel, you’ve got a winning combination. The anti-aging effects of retinol work wonders, while the horsetail plant extract focuses on not only anti-aging, but also helping soothe inflammation and helps diminish the look of pores. Witch Hazel’s antioxidant properties protect against future skin damage.
