Retinol Creams – A Major Player in Anti-Aging Lineup: Retinol Creams

Retinol creams provide a proven treatment to skin that needs attention. Many people want to improve the look of their skin. They may be aging and their skin shows it. They may like the sun and their skin shows it. They may have acne and their skin shows it. Retinol creams are one of the modern products that prove that natural ingredients do a great deal of good. Retinol creams contain a form of vitamin A. This natural substance works to promote skin regeneration. Retinol creams applied directly to the skin brings this natural substance where you want it to go. It sinks into the inner layers of the skin and helps regenerate elastin and collagen production.

Retinol creams require patience. Many people do not see the full results of using retinol creams for up to 12 weeks. The first few weeks can be frustrating if you expect instantaneous results. Within four to six weeks, however, you will begin to notice changes. Your skin will start to look firmer. The wrinkles and fine lines will start to fill out a bit. As the retinol creams stimulate new cell growth, the older skin will start to fade away. Skin tone will start improving. Even old acne scars and dermatitis will show improvement with a few weeks of using retinol creams.

Many retinol creams contain other ingredients that help enhance the skin’s appearance or to provide protection. While retinol creams have a dramatic affect on the appearance of the skin, it can also make the skin more sensitive to sun light. Many manufacturers of retinol creams add natural skin soothers as well as SPF ingredients to counteract this minor irritation. These additional ingredients in retinol creams help counteract the skin’s new sensitivity while also making the skin look even better.

If retinol creams sound like something, you want to try, take time to look at the other ingredients as well. Glycolic acid and hydroxy acids both enhance the performance of retinol creams. Vitamin C and E provide natural allies to repair skin damage. A variety of natural extracts like soy and green tea also provide help when added to retinol creams. With these various combinations, you can find one that will help your skin look younger within a few weeks. Retinol creams do what most manufacturers say they do. But, make sure you are getting a good combination for the best skin results.
