Vitamins for the skin: retinol in cosmetics

The working percentage of retinol in cosmetics is small - the effect starts from a concentration of only 0.5% vitamin A. This is enough for dry skin; women with normal and oily skin can use cream and 1% retinol. More "heavy artillery" can be in the arsenal, if there is a firm confidence that the skin will withstand such a test. In any case, it is better to give the skin a rest from the effects of vitamin A and use the funds with it for one to a maximum of two months (depending on the individual reaction), then taking a break.


Using products with retinol, it is necessary to monitor the level of skin moisture, take care that there is a regenerating agent near (for example, with vitamin F), time the course for the autumn-winter season and remember sun protection factor. Vitamin A is rapidly oxidized, therefore, it is better to give preference to the cream with a dispenser and a closed tube rather than the usual jar.Well, if the cream contains tocopherol acetate - vitamin E prevents retinol from rapidly oxidizing.


A separate question is whether to use products with retinol in the area around the eyes. If you do this, be careful, because there is a high risk of getting dry, irritated and wrinkled. These unpleasant effects can appear on the entire face with an excess of retinol. Beauticians even talk about the so-called retinoic dermatitis - a special kind of individual intolerance, which manifests itself at the first application of the cream with vitamin A. This is a sharp reddening and peeling of the skin, even in areas that are not in contact with the tool.


Among the successful products with retinol are, in particular, Vichy LiftActiv HA Advanced Concentrate (1% Retinol), Derma E, Vitamin A and Green Tea Creme (0.5% Retinol), as well as La Roche-Posay Redermic R Eyes, developed by Especially for hypersensitive eyelid skin.
