What is Retinol? Do I really need it?

October 1, 2021


Yes! Everyone should use a retinol serum no matter the age in order to prevent from or help restore maturing skin! Retinol is an essential ingredient in many anti-aging serums, as well as phospholipids and glycolipids, to help fight the signs of aging and maturing skin. Phospholipids and glycolipids are found in the uppermost layer of the skin, and are designed to protect the skin’s moisture barrier from drying out and becoming irritated. Retinol, like skinBe’s Advanced Retinol Serum, is designed to stimulate diminished collagen production that unfortunately comes with aging and bring back that lost moisture barrier in order to protect the skin from harmful outside properties. It is also known for its cellular turnover properties, which is going to help bring fresh, rejuvenated skin to the surface and get rid of the old, damaged skin cells. skinBe’s Advanced Retinol Serum, visibly firms skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and enlarged pores. It also works amazingly to fade dark spots, age spots, and even skin tone and texture!

Over time, due to aging and sun damage, our skin’s luminosity diminishes and we lose facial volume, or plumpness. Retinol is one of the best anti-aging properties there is, that is used to help turn back the clock and rejuvenate the skin back to its “baby fresh” state that it once was. In skinBe’s Advanced Retinol Serum, it contains 0.5% Retinol which is the #1 dermatologist recommended ingredient to fight signs of aging and UVA/UVB damaged skin. Mixed with Tretinoin at night, this combination makes for the best, most optimal results for anti-aging, or prevention of. 

Everyone loses the essential lipids in our skin over time that help prevent from dry, damaged skin. Without the use of retinol, the loss of that moisture barrier will create for a more aged look to the skin due to the appearance of enlarged pores, fine lines and wrinkles, dry and irritated skin, visible age spots, and decreased luminosity and facial volume. Just like SPF is essential to protect from harmful UVA/UVB rays, retinol is just as important to retain the essential moisture barrier beneath the surface of our skin. Though some may think anti-aging products should only be used when they get to a certain age, that most certainly is a myth. Anti-aging products like skinBe’s Advanced Retinol Serum can be used at the age of 18, just as much as it can be used at the age of 80. It’s never too early or too late to turn back the clocks of aging.
