No matter what social platform you’re using you can’t escape the topic of Retinol being a skincare must-have, some people go as far as calling this product their ’holy grail’.
Let’s talk a little bit about the benefits
Retinol has a lot of benefits, one of them being that it increases skin cell production. Increasing skin cell production (cell turnover) removes dead skin that has accumulated on the surface, which in turn allows the rest of your skincare to penetrate deeper, giving you optimal results! It doesn’t stop there, it also brightens and smooths skin texture, and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Why quality Retinol matters
While you can go to any of your local drug stores, or beauty stores to get retinol, we don‘t recommended it. You’ll spend hundreds of dollars a year trying new things that don’t provide you results, so why not just invest in your skin and stick with a product that’s actually result driven. We recommend always choosing Medical Grade skincare to get the most for your money (and your future self). Medical Grade skincare is backed by science, is clinically tested, and penetrates deeper into the skin.
Our favorite Retinol on the market
At Noir Medical Aesthetics we only carry skincare that we believe in, and use ourselves. Our favorite Retinol by far is the Revision Retinol Complete 0.5 unlike your typical Retinol, it doesn’t dry out the skin! This product has time-released Retinol for maximum results with minimal irritation. It also boosts your skins hydration level, which is what sets it apart from other medical grade Retinol‘s available on the market. This Retinol also contains Vitamin C which is an antioxidant and brightening agent. This is great for all skin types and ideal for people who have combination, oily or dry skin types.
Biggest take away from this? It’s 100% worth the hype. If you aren’t currently using Retinol in your skincare regimen, what are you waiting for? Oh, and make sure you are investing in a medical grade Retinol… you wouldn’t wash a Mercedes with dish soap, so why would you put drug store retinol on your face?
