10 things you didn’t know about Retinol but should

Pevonia Botanica Australia Organic Skin Care skincare Micro Retinol 10 things you didnt know about retinol blogWhen it comes to the application of this anti-aging wonder ingredient people are still fearful. It’s time to face those fears and reap in the ingredient’s amazing benefits.

Many moons ago formulations of retinoids (and still some strong prescription variations) were known to have harsh side effects such as irritation, peeling, redness and flaking. Queue fear. However today’s formulations have vastly improved and generally speaking over the counter formulas will not cause such skin issues.

Retinol does play a huge role in anti-aging. It is still the “buzz” ingredient, the “superstar” for skin, the multi-tasking ingredient that provides endless anti-aging benefits!

It exfoliates, increases cell production and turnover, stimulates collagen production therefore decreases fine lines and wrinkles, reduces hyperpigmentation, kills bacteria, cleans pores and evens skin complexion!

So what exactly is Retinol?

It is a derivative of Vitamin A and therefore an antioxidant. It is also an extremely effective cell communicating ingredient, in other words it organises cells and tells them to behave like younger, healthier cells!

Sold yet? Follow these tips and you’ll be a retinol convert in no time…

  • If you are looking to introduce retinol into your skincare for the first time it’s preferable to start using it in autumn, winter or spring as skin may be a little sensitive to sun in the summer months.
  • Introduce it slowly. Start once a day, every other day initially. Allow your skin to acclimatise to it.
  • For best results retinol is better used at night. This is because it’s a reparative preparation and night is a time for repair, however also partly because it breaks down in sunlight decreasing effectiveness. If you wear in the day, couple with a good SPF for best results.
  • While there are many nice anti-aging creams on the market, many only improve the way your skin looks superficially and temporarily. Few beauty ingredients have actually been proven to slow down skin aging on a deeper level. But retinol creams do exactly that.
  • Along with retinol’s proven anti-aging benefits, topical application can also improve pore function and, in time, pore size which also helps control acne.
  • Only buy retinol products in non-transparent packaging as they will minimize or block air exposure. Note: Retinol (or all forms of vitamin A) break down and deteriorate when repeatedly exposed to air or sunlight.
  • While it’s not detrimental it’s best not to use if pregnant or breast feeding.
  • It’ll take a few months to really see the extent of the benefits retinol has on the skin so stick with it!
  • Oily, combination, acne-prone or sun-damaged skin types will benefit the most from retinol although it will benefit all skin types when applied correctly.
  • Make sure retinol is right for you! Speak to a Pevonia professional!

Now you know it all why not try the Pevonia Micro Retinol range? An easy to use 4 step range to keep skin looking porcelain-smooth and youthfully radiant.

This Pevonia-exclusive technology disperses tiny retinol micro-particles within the skin. Serving as an expedited delivery system, it allows immediate and easy absorption as well as targeted delivery within the deeper epidermal layers, rapidly re-stabilizing the skin’s normal function.

Evening habits to incorporate in your skincare routine

Pevonia Australia Organic Natural skincare skin care evening habits routineBeauty sleep is very important for your skin. Make sure your skin gets the most out of your night time rest by adding these to your usual evening routine.

Skip the wet wipes and cleanse your skin

Beauty products are evolving and we’ve read a lot about wet wipes aka beauty wipes winning the hearts of women everywhere. DO NOT ENGAGE. I repeat, do not engage, even if it comes in different scents. Water is still best for cleansing and there’s nothing more relaxing than the feeling of freshness after having a thorough hot and cold face wash in the evening before hitting bed. No residue, no sticky feeling!

Night time is for treats!

Sleep enables the body to reverse everyday free radical damage through cellular renewal. While we sleep our skin reduces Cortisol, the stress hormone responsible for discoloration and stretch marks, and increases Melatonin, the antioxidant that helps fight age spots, fine lines, and formation of other skin diseases. While we sleep is the best time to treat our skin to serums, oils and cream. Depending on your skincare type, pick your treat for the night and allow it to work with plenty of time. Our recommendations: serums and concentrates, face oils, creams and moisturisers

A bottle of lemon water by your bedside

Make sure you hydrate your body throughout the day and before going to bed. You sleep 6-8 hours and that means 6-8 hours of no water intake. If you wake up from time to time and feel thirsty, drink up. Water helps flush away toxins off your body and your kidneys will thank you for it.

Additional tips

  • As we grow older, production of Melatonin decreases too. Take melatonin herbal supplement to help you sleep, 30 minutes before you go to bed. Read: What happens to your skin when you turn 40?
  • We naturally lose moisture during the sleep process so opt for products that work fast and deep into our skin pre-sleep to lock in the moisture — on your face and body. Read: Miracle skin transformers
  • On a diet? Increase intracellular hydration by including water-rich fruits like apples, cucumbers and watermelon into your dinner plate. Read: Super foods for super skin
