Why lockdown is a great time to start Retinolby Dr Ros Debenham
Lockdown is a great time to start using or increasing your Retinol usage
For those who take their skincare regime very seriously, lockdown is pretty disconcerting. Of course, we'll stay home to protect each other and the NHS - that goes without saying - but how can we make the most of this time?
One answer is to start or increase the level of Retinol in your regime.
Why is Retinol important in skincare?
Retinol is your most powerful ally in the fight against premature ageing. Retinol sweeps away the dead cells, leading to brighter skin. It also stimulates repair and collagen production at the deepest level.
In effective concentrations, Retinol may cause redness and dryness. But as we are staying home more and social distancing, this isn't such a big problem. We can even be a bit more aggressive than we would normally be, so speeding up the process.
The job of the different Retinols include:
- increase cell turnover, brightening the skin
- suppress and reduce pigmentation, giving uniformity of colour
- stimulate collagen, tightening the skin
- act deeper in the skin, to address deeper wrinkles and skin texture
