From fine lines to dark spots, acne, and clogged pores, if you’ve got a skin concern, it’s more than likely that retinol can rescue it, or at least, make an extreme difference. The buzzy skincare ingredient has quickly become known as the anti-aging holy grail because it truly delivers when it comes to boosting cell turnover, unclogging pores, and evening skin tone. When used regularly, retinol has been shown to provide smoother, brighter, more even skin—a total dream.
“Retinol is a vitamin A derivative and perhaps the best-studied anti-aging ingredient we have in skincare,” explains Joshua Zeichner, M.D., director of cosmetic and clinical research in dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City. “Retinol stimulates collagen production to strengthen the skin’s foundation. It also enhances cell turnover to improve radiance and even out skin tone and texture,” he says.
So, actually, no matter your age, incorporating a retinol into your customer’s skincare regimen is not just beneficial, but the key to getting a youthful glow to their skin.
The Gold standard of Anti-Aging
Peterson Pierre, M.D., a board-certified dermatologist in California who specializes in cosmetic dermatology, calls it the “golden standard of anti-aging” for its unmatched ability to reduce collagen breakdown and accelerate skin cell turnover.
Odds are, if you haven’t added a retinol cream or serum to your product line yet, and are looking for an anti-aging product, you may want to start right here at Private Label Skincare Florida. We have several sound formulations to fit the bill.
But with retinol products now so readily available in so many different forms, it’s become difficult to find the best retinol cream for your customers. Luckily, these retinol combinations come recommended from the pros. Just keep in mind that all of these creams and serums are powerful, so it’s best to recommend use at night when the skin is in the regenerating process and follow them up with a moisturizer to avoid dryness, a common side effect when starting retinols. Also, you’ll want your customers to start by using it twice a week, and slowly working your way up to a nightly routine to avoid irritation.
Newbie to Retinol
If you’re a newbie to retinol, you may want to try one of our formulas with small amounts of retinol, and beneficial super peptides would be a good start. It’s formulated with a blend of nourishing oils and Vitamin F, along with antioxidant-packed kale to balance out the dryness or irritation that sometimes comes with more concentrated creams. We have a formula here at Private Label skincare Florida to fit the bill.
For retinol beginners, Dr. Pierre says to look for ingredients like these antioxidants, essential fatty acids and ceramides because they work synergistically with retinols and help minimize redness and irritation while also retaining moisture in the skin. Since we have many formulas, you can choose the one that suits your clientele the best.
“That combination works very well for those with sensitive skin or those who may consider starting their retinol program slowly, every other night instead of every night in the beginning,” says Pierre. The reason to start slowly, and only use at night? Because if you go in the sun after using retinol, you may damage your skin, so use at night especially at the start.
