I can’t live without a good retinoid product! Retinoids provide such a wide range of benefits, making it the perfect skincare product for just about everyone; however, the trick is, finding the right product for your skin type and concerns as some can be far too harsh.
So what do retinoids really do and what are their benefits? The short answer is that retinoid products cause skin cells to turnover more rapidly and increase collagen production, resulting in a wide range of benefits that include:
Treating age spots
Minimizing crow’s feet
Reducing dark under eye puffiness
Diminishing pore size
Brightening skin tone
Reducing fine lines
Exfoliating dead skin cells
Here are some of the products we carry that contain retinoids:
Glycolic and Retinol Pads
Chiral-A Discoloration Solution
Retinol 2% Exfoliating Scrub/Mask
NOTE: not all retinoids are created equal. Many products out today actually cause the second layer of the skin to become thinner, thus aging us quicker!! This is why it's so important to buy products from a licensed professional.
