ABOUT THE MOISTURIZER
ADVANCED RETINOL MOISTURIZER
HOW DO RETINOIDS WORK?
To understand how retinoids work, we need to first know a little about collagen. Collagen is a protein that provides structure to the body, as well as sustaining firmness and elasticity. Any decrease in collagen causes our skin to become thinner. Aging of the skin is due to two factors: intrinsic (which includes our genetics, as well as the natural act of aging) and extrinsic (which includes damage from the sun’s UV rays, smoking, and pollution). Our cells are always going through a constant regeneration process, but it begins to slow down with age, and collagen manufacturing also gets reduced. This is where retinol creams come in. When you apply retinol topically, the enzymes in your skin convert them at the cellular level to retinoic acid, which has been clinically shown to address the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Retinoids are chemical derivatives of Vitamin A that have been proven in numerous studies to be effective in boosting cell turnover in the skin’s top layers, as well as stimulating the synthesis of collagen.
