Retinol creams, what’s your take on them?
I have periodically tried them over the years but never been as committed as I think I should have been. I rather regret that now as they do seem to make all the difference to the quality and texture of the skin.
Having sensitive skin has put me off in the past but it would seem that with major advances in the skincare industry there are many more products available; retinol creams that do their job without harsh reaction.
Retinol has been around for many decades and always considered a youth enhancing treatment for the skin. Retinol promotes collagen production and at the same time plumps, smoothes and unclogs pores.
That sounds nothing short of a win/win, doesn’t it?
The Retinol treatments that I have tried left my skin feeling dry and itchy and altogether too sensitive. Friends swear by it and maintain that Retinol is a treatment that has to be perservered with. The percentage of the Retinol would seem to be the all important factor, yet it is the potency that causes my irritations.
This year there is much focus on anti-aging creams and Retinol seems to be one of the ingredients most lauded.
There are a crop of new products out there for us to try and I will admit, I am in.
Have you tried them? I’m starting with the Strivectin. I would love your thoughts and recommendations… xv
