If You Use Skin Lightening Products on Your Face, You Need to Use Retinol to Prevent Wrinkles
Retinol is one of the most effective antioxidants recommended by dermatologists to combat wrinkles. Darker skin tones contain more melanin so people with very dark skin are less susceptible to wrinkles. If you use skin lightening products to gain a fairer complexion, you have reduced the amount of melanin in your skin so it is important for you to use retinol to prevent the onset of wrinkles. Too many times we have seen people who have lightened their skin significantly but unfortunately they tend to look older because they did not use Vitamin A products to combat wrinkles.
Retinol is a natural form of Vitamin A that is necessary for the proper functioning of the skin. When skin cells are nourished by retinol, they are softened and healed, thus preventing wrinkles and acne formation. The antioxidant properties of retinol create healthy skin cells and destroy the signs of free radical damage.

The Strongest Form of Retinol Available
The 2.5% Retinol Serum is the strongest form of retinol available on the market. In the past you could only find strengths of 0.5% or 1.0% because it was difficult to formulate higher percentages of retinol without increasing the risk of oxidation. Today, we have more sophisticated techniques available which has allowed us to create a 2.5% retinol serum. This new formula rivals other Vitamin A products that are ridiculously expensive and available only through dermatologists. If you want to look like 30 when your actual age is 40, then you need to maintain a healthy lifestyle and PLEASE, PLEASE, use retinol every night and sunscreen every day.
Benefits of 2.5% Retinol Face Serum
Retinol is a popular skin care product among dermatologists and their clients because it provides numerous skin benefits. Retinol improves skin tone and texture while reducing fine lines. It also promotes moisture as it elevates the hydration levels of the skin. Other benefits of retinol include:
- Improves skin pigmentation
- Corrects skin texture and skin tone
- Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Prevents acne breakouts
- Improves the appearance of blackheads and acne scars
- Replenishes damaged skin
- Provides a healthy, youthful glow

- Diminishes signs of aging

- Removes dead skin cells that would usually clog pores and cause breakouts
The Difference between Retinol and Retin A
- Retinol is a natural form of vitamin A, while Retin-A is derived from retinoic acid, a synthetic derivative of vitamin A.
- Retinol is an OTC (over-the-counter) product while Retin A is considered pharmaceutical because it is the brand name for tretinoin.
- Retinol is much milder on the skin than Retin A, so it is less likely to cause irritation, peeling or itching.
- Retinol is a good alternative for those whose skin cannot tolerate the stronger Retin A products
This rarely occurs but if you have very sensitive skin, upon initial application, retinol may cause your skin to feel warm and tingly and it may become red in color. This usually subsides in a few seconds and ceases as your skin adjusts to the product.
Retinol can cause the skin to become sensitive to the sun. Sun exposure should be limited when using Retinol products
Vitamin A products such as Retinol, can sometimes cause scaling and itching of the skin
