Product of the month - Retinol!
Fall is the ideal time to add a retinol to your regime, and if you already use one, it’s a great time to increase your retinol strength or usage. Retinoids are keratolytics, which means they increase cell turnover and are known to stimulate collagen synthesis (hello younger looking skin!). Retinol is essential to any anti-aging regime, the benefits are countless and include: reduced appearance of fine lines/wrinkles, lightened hyperpigmentation, improved skin tone/texture/elasticity, reduced breakouts/acne and restored hydration to the skin!
Some mild redness, irritation and peeling are expected when using these products and are signs of good skin repair. These anticipated reactions will lessen as you progress in your retinol journey; the key is to start low, go slow and be consistent. If you’re not sure where to begin or how to add a retinol to your regimen, stop in or give us a call! *Do not use retinol while pregnant, breastfeeding or if you are planning to become pregnant.
