What is retinol, and why should it be a part of your skincare routine?

Skincare enthusiasts have all the significant players memorized. Vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, you name it. Am I forgetting a member? Yes, that’s right! Retinol. The name is mentioned by almost all of the skincare and cosmetic brands now. It has become a booming ingredient in the skin care industry, from serums to lotions, creams, and cleansers. Retinol is also a part of omega-3 capsules, even in multivitamin supplements. But besides its presence in all skin care products, do you know the wonders of retinol? What makes it so unique for our skin? Let’s find out the answers.  

What is retinol?   

Retinol is a form of vitamin A, also known as vitamin A1. It is a fat-soluble compound, highly studied for its benefits on the skin. Primarily, retinol helps maintain healthy teeth, skeletal tissues, mucus membranes and skin. Despite being a form of vitamin A, Retinol is not synthesized by the body, just like all the other essential vitamins. Together with omega 3, it is also a part of various skin care supplements. Over the years, many studies have proved the beautiful benefits of retinol on human skin [1] 

Retinol for Collagen 

Retinol penetrates the deep layers of skin and prevents the breakdown of collagen. It also effectively increases epidermal thickness and collagen expression [2] 

Retinol for Acne call!  

Dead skin cells and clogged pores block the hair follicles on the skin. Microorganisms can also invade these blocked pores, leading to acne and inflammation. Retinol can reduce inflammation by blocking molecules that cause acne and inflammation [3]. Severe forms of acne require more potent retinol.  

Retinol to reverse ageing  

Skin ageing occurs due to various reasons, internal as well as external. Retinol helps reverse signs of ageing by reducing fine lines, sagging, and wrinkles. Retinol also protects skin elasticity by stimulating cell turnover and collagen production [4] 

Hail thy hydration! 

Retinol helps protect skin hydration by preventing excess water absorption from dermal tissues. This results in plump skin and a fresh, dewy glow, a look that every woman loves on her face.  

Skin is the playground.  

Retinol improves skin's overall appearance by repairing uneven tone and texture. It also brightens the skin by performing an internal cleanse. Some studies show that retinol serum participants' hyperpigmentation and unevenness are decreased [5] 

Other benefits  

The fantastic list doesn’t end here. Retinol also helps treat keratosis pilaris, which causes rough and bumpy skin. It also improves the appearance of the skin by minimizing scars and pores [6] 

In addition to retinol, other vitamins are also effective skincare solutions. For example, vitamin B12 is essential for collagen synthesis in the skin. It also reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the skin. It is also shown to maintain the skin’s natural moisture levels. Severe skin conditions, such as acne, scars, clogged pores, and dryness, can be treated using vitamin B12.  

However, it is essential to note the timing of using different vitamins for best results. Retinol, an active form of vitamin A, is preferred to be used in the mornings. Meanwhile, vitamin B of all forms is advised to be used at night [7]. We know how much you love your skin. Keeping that in mind, we have devised a perfect drink for you. 

Skin Fuel  

A formulated skin care drink recommended by dermatologists, Skin Fuel, is composed of Japanese marine collagen, hyaluronic acid, and glutathione. Its refreshing taste covers all the major skin issues people face daily. A tasty and top solution, isn’t it?  

Virgin Omega 3  

A brilliant, time-release controlled capsule, Virgin Omega 3 contains omega 3 oil with curcumin beadlets. It helps skin renewal and provides immunity and heart, bones, and joint support. Great one, indeed.  

Wrapping Up! 

Safe to say, retinol is an all-rounder in skin care. With an impressive list of proven benefits, there is no doubt that skincare brands are enormous fans of retinol. Its hype is justified. From retaining moisture to preventing acne, it covers all skin complications. However, topical applications can only do so much. For long-lasting, enhanced results, oral supplementation of essential vitamins is recommended. We know your love for your skin. The amount of exhausting regime you follow on a whim proves your concerns. Wellbeing Nutrition supports you at every step, making it an even more accessible and tastier experience!
