What is it? What it is.
Let’s start by defining it. Retinol and Retin-A are all part of the Vitamin A family. Our bodies produce vitamin A, which is essential for healthy cell growth. The topical application of vitamin A has been shown in studies to improve skin integrity by promoting collagen and elastin production and enhancing cell turnover.
You may have heard retinol referred to in dermatology as the gold-standard anti-aging ingredient. The prescription-strength treatment (Retin A or tretinoin) is pure retinoic acid. The skin can immediately utilize it, whereas the pure retinol found in high-efficacy dermo-cosmetic formulas gets converted into retinoic acid once absorbed.
What is the Retinol Effect?
How to Use Retinol
Pure retinol can be a powerful addition to your skin care regimen at night. It is essential to know that it can take time for your skin to adapt to a retinoid-based serum or night cream. Introducing a high-concentration product can cause temporary dryness, flakiness, and redness. These side effects will disappear after the skin has been “routinized.”
What does “routinization,” or the acclimatization of skin to vitamin A, mean? The term “retinization” refers to a period during which skin adjusts. These temporary discomforts will disappear once your skin has been routinized. Mary Kay designed a unique 8-week optimization procedure to improve your experience and support your success.
