What is Retinol?
There are few skincare ingredients more renowned than Retinol, but do we actually know what it is and what it does for our skin? Retinol is a powerful antioxidant and a derivative of Vitamin A. When applied topically, it converts to retinoic acid and has the ability to penetrate deeply into skin.
Retinol has become a coveted skincare ingredient partially due to its anti-aging ability. At once this hardworking ingredients can increase cell turnover, reduce evidence of sun damage, improve texture, minimize fine lines and pores…the list goes on. See some of the many benefits of Retinol below:
- Reduces visible signs of aging by increasing cell turnover and diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Boosts collagen production and inhibits the enzyme that breaks down collagen and elastin
- Evens skin tone and reverses sun damage by fading hyperpigmentation
- Improves skin's texture by resurfacing to reveal a smoother complexion
- Helps prevent breakouts by detoxifying pores and controlling overactive oil glands
While Retinol sounds like a no-brainer to add to your skincare regime like, yesterday, it’s important to understand the potential for adverse side effects. Many people suffer from irritation and retinol sensitivity while acclimating to using a retinol-based product. There are many ways to reduce Retinol sensitivity, such as using the product less frequently and being mindful of what other ingredients you combine it with.
How Is Sacred Sleep Different From Other Retinol Products?
When formulating Sacred Sleep Overnight Repair we wanted to ensure we delivered all the benefits of retinol while minimizing or eliminating its less desirable side effects. We paired .5% retinol with a host of inflammation and irritation fighting ingredients powered by our signature luxury active florals. Here are a few of the soothing florals found in Sacred Sleep:
