As we age, our skin loses moistures and elasticity. In addition, damage caused by UV light accumulates over time causing the skin to age at a faster rate. Retinol serum is one of the most effective anti-aging treatments available today. It is a form of vitamin A that plays an important role in cellular growth and differentiation, cell surface alterations, and immune modulation. It has been studies since World War II and has been used in skincare over 2 decades. It improves photo-aging by modifying cellular differentiation programs mainly initiating the increase of epidermal proliferation leading to epidermal thickening, compaction of the stratum corneum; and biosynthesis and deposition of the glycosaminoglycans important component of cell matrix.
In other words, retinol use can significantly slow down the aging process by constantly resurfacing and promoting new layer formation. It takes at least 2-3 months of continuous use to see the visible effect. As a result, lot of people quit before they see the result.
What are some benefits of Retinol in Skincare routine?
- Slows down the aging significantly
- Reduces fine lines, wrinkles, blemishes, pigmentation
- Potent antioxidant that prevents acne by reducing sebum production and reducing the pore size preventing it from clogging.
- Increases collagen synthesis and elastin production making your skin look younger, firmer and refreshed.
What are some Side effects that I should expect?
Initially it makes the skin looks red and peeled because of its anti-inflammatory property. Think of it as a good sign. It works by peeling off your dead and older skin and replacing it with newer and younger looking firm refreshed skin. It is important you allow at least 1-2 months to see a visible effect. Dermatologists in western medicine such as USA recommends its daily use after the age of 25 years old in both male and female in order to prevent the damage caused by day-to-day light which significantly slows down the aging signs.
Why SkinCues introduced Trio with Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid and Retinol in a set?
Our Vitamin C prevents premature skin aging, Hyaluronic acid boosts hydration and Retinol serum reverses those skin damages you accumulate on a daily basis. Jade Roller is used to increase the penetration and the effectiveness of these serum along with other added benefits of its own.
What should be my skincare routine with SkinCues Trio (Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid and Retinol Serum)?
We recommend you use the Vitamin C and Hyaluronic acid in the morning. Apply a drop of each over your face and use the Jade roller to massage (see instruction on proper use of Jade) for 10 - 15 minutes. This can be done when you are just watching TV or checking emails or news. At night, you can use our retinol serum in the same manner either with Jade roller or just with your hand to further help you in skin resurfacing and reverse those aging signs. Use of retinol is recommended at night because of its photosensitive nature. Also, retinol should be used at least for a month to see significant result. Lot of users quit before using more optimal time period. Initially, retinol can peel off your skin and make it worse before making it better. Think of it as it is clearly away your dead old skin first before bringing fresh and healthy younger looking skin.
Why did SkinCues introduced Jade roller along with Vitamin serum?
There are wide variety of Vitamin C used in dermatology in different concentrations and forms. The biggest challenge with the use of Vitamin C has been that it is unstable and difficult to deliver into the dermis in the optimum dosage. In order to optimize the proper delivery of topic Vitamin C, we recommend using our 100% Brazilian jade roller. Jade roller has been shown to increase the circulation and lymphatic flow, and further promotes the collagen synthesis and most importantly increase the penetration of these topical cosmeceuticals taking them to the right place. You will see the difference within a few days.
