Fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration, and a loss of elasticity are skin complaints we hear people talk about all the time. This is largely due to the fact that from age 20, we produce less skin-supporting collagen each year. This is where forms of retinoid (retinol) take center stage. For decades professionals in the skincare industry have been recommending some form of retinoid to help "combat" these pesky lines, wrinkles and discoloration.
How do they work?
To understand retinoids, you need know a bit about collagen. Collagen is a protein that provides structure to the body and helps in sustaining firmness and elasticity. When we have a decrease in collagen, it causes our skin to become thinner. Two factors cause aging of our skin:
Intrinsic (genetics and the natural act of aging)
Extrinsic (examples include damage from the sun’s UV rays, smoking, and pollution).
Our cells are always going through regeneration process, but it slows down with age. This is where retinol products can come to the rescue. By using 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.
