One of my favourite products is Ultra A Skin Perfecting Serum Mild.
I use this amazing product every second day for its anti aging properties and because it’s a great allrounder.

Retinol (Vitamin A) is arguably the most renowned ingredient in cosmeceuticals for its ability to help reduce the first signs of premature skin aging, helping my skin to look smoother, plumper, and more refined.

It also helps improve the appearance of uneven skin tone and congestion.

I’d recommend it for almost everybody and use it in the evening with a night time moisturiser.

Skin Health Tip…. Retinoids

By now, you’ve likely heard how amazing retinoids are for the skin — and with good reason!

They’ve been proven in study after study, to encourage cellular turnover, stimulate collagen, help treaacne, soften wrinkles, fade pigmentation, and give the skin an overall youthful glow. Their existence to the skin care industry is what the Queen is to the world: royalty.However not all retinoids are the same. Retinoids are a huge family of compounds derived from Vitamin A. There are several forms from over-the-counter to prescription strength. Retinol, retinyl palmitate and and retinoic acid are ones to look out for in OTC products.

Many assume their skin is will thin, but quite the opposite is true. Since retinoids stimulate collagen production, it actually helps to thicken the skin. This is beneficial because one of the natural signs of getting older is thinning skin. In addition, they’re a “cell communicating” ingredient. This means their job is to “talk” to skin cells and encourage healthier, younger cells making their way to the surface of the skin.

It’s easy to assume the skin is exfoliating itself since some of the side effects are peeling and flakiness. However, those side effects are actually a result of irritation and dryness until the skin acclimates, as retinoids don’t have the ability to clear or dissolve dead skin cells on their own.

Often, daily use is the goal, but you’ll still reap the benefits by using it a few times a week, too. How fast the results happen also depend on the strength and type of retinoid.

The reputation of retinoids is that they’re a “harsh” ingredient. Sure, they can be a little aggressive, but people with sensitive skin can still happily use them with just a little modification. It’s best to start off cautiously with once or twice a week application under the guidance of your skin care professional

And when should you start using retinoids, If you’re interested in treating or taking preventive measures for wrinkles, fine lines, pigmentation, scarring, and more, then your late 20s or early 30s is a great age to start because it’s around this timeline when the body starts to produce less collagen.
