How can you get Retinol-A? Retinol- A is prescribed by a Physician on an as needed basis. Although it’s proven to be an effective ingredient, it can cause irritation to the skin, possible redness and peeling of the skin. It’s common for these affects when first starting Retinol-A.
How to use it correctly. Start 3 times a week until you see that everything is ok and you’re able to then use it every day. Be sure to not expose your skin to the sun too much and be sure to use a high SPF. When starting to use creams containing Retinol-A, it is not recommended to use hydroxic acids or strong cleansers for the face. Just until the skin gets used to the cream. If there are negative reactions, stop use for a 2-3 days, then begin using a smaller amount of product.
What does Retinol-A take care of? It makes the skin smoother, the fine lines dramatically improve appearance and research shows that it repairs sun damage.
Is Retinol-A the fountain of youth? Yes, but be clear on the expectations. It will not eliminate the deep lines, but can however improve the depth. Nor will it lift extremely sagging skin, but can improve appearance. In a few months of use, your skin will have more elasticity and smoother to the touch and more radiant.
How does it really work? The molecule of Retinol-A bonds to the skin cells and makes them act and function like a healthy young cell. This encourages and regulates the cells production and improves the cells that have been damaged by UV rays. It normalizes the structure of the skin and increases the production of collagen fibers and elasticity that are in charge of the flexibility of the skin. In addition to that, it causes a balanced pigmentation of the skin.
Liposomes are microscopic spheres very similar to our skin cells in shape, making the absorption almost perfect. Liposome delivery system is the key to product penetration. Our skin does not allow anything to penetrate it: good or bad. For example, when a thorn penetrates our skin, our body immediately attacks and tries to reject it. So we have to trick our skin in order to penetrate, one of the only ways is to use liposome. Liposome is used in the medical industry to provide penetration and time release delivery.
Liposome complex Beta Carotene
Beta carotene is the orange-red pigment found in many plants and fruits. The human body converts Beta carotene into Vitamin A, also known as retinol. Beta carotene is as an antioxidant; antioxidants inhibit the oxidation of other molecules, and prevent the body from forming free radicals. Free radicals are what damage the skin cells and cause aging. Beta carotene can be a super substance against acne. It heals acne scars and quickens cell renewal to prevent pores from getting clogged. Since beta carotene quickens cell renewal it is excellent for fading age spots. Beta carotene will help the skin fight away future aging. The antioxidant capabilities make beta carotene a good ingredient for preventative anti-aging. Beta carotene brightens the skin. Since it quickens cell renewal it will help you get clearer, glowing skin faster.

Additionally, it increases the production of new collagen and the contraction of fibers, thus restoring the springiness of skin.

As you know, an increase of blood circulation is one of the most important needs of your skin. When there is a lack of blood flow and oxygen the skin becomes thinner and there is no rejuvenation of the cells.
