Is Retinol really the skincare fountain of youth?

This month Mary Kay launched "Mary Kay Clinical Solutions Retinol 0.5". It is powered by pure, high-concentration Retinol that takes the offensive against wrinkles, discoloration and loss of firmness of our facial skin. Retinol is the gold-standard ingredient dermatologists recommend for adults to help prevent signs of aging and to reverse advanced visible signs of aging.

Retinol is a synthetic derivative of Vitamin-A and when applied to your skin it helps promote cell turnover and prevent the clogging of pores. In the 1970s it was first approved for the use of acne patients. But, it also makes your skin look and feels softer, smoother, and helps decrease fine lines and wrinkles by improving collagen production.

When starting your usage of Retinol, you should start using it slowly, incorporating it into your skin care routine once per week, in the evening. After a couple of weeks, you can use it two to three times a week and up to four times per week, once your skin is used to the Retinol. One of the important reasons to start incorporating Retinol into your skin care routine slowly is to avoid irritation to your skin. It is also important to use a good cleanser and to use a day moisturizer with sunscreen.
