What is Retinol?
If you’re into anti-aging products, it’s likely that you’ve come across retinol. Essentially a derivative of Vitamin A, this powerful ingredient helps improve fine lines and wrinkles by boosting collagen production. It also prevents the formation of acne and blackheads, tightens pores, smooths skin and evens out discoloration by unclogging pores and speeding up cell turnover. With its numerous skin benefits and rapid results, retinol helps not only women in their forties. It also benefits women in their twenties, which is when skin begins to slow down its collagen production and becomes prone to breakouts caused by a stressful lifestyle.

#Repost @poziomka69 (@get_repost) ・・・ @yeouthskincare Retinol 2.5% Serum with Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin E, Aloe Vera According to the brand this is a powerful anti-aging serum to make skin smoother, firmer, more even-toned with fewer breakouts and tighter pores. It contains retinol (also known as a Vitamin A1 used for decades to help with anti-aging, hyperpigmentation, to stimulate collagen production and cell turnover), hyaluronic acid (provides hydration, alleviates dryness), natural vitamin E (antioxidant, evens out skin tone, builds protective barrier) and aloe vera (rich in vitamins C, E and Beta Carotene). It has a thick, jelly-like consistency, yellowish color and nice floral scent. Serum glides on very easily and a small amount goes a long way. It absorbs well without any film. It should be used nightly, after cleansing. The serum leaves skin very soft and smooth. It does a great job at balancing my combination skin, evening out my complexion. It helps healing occasional acne that I get from time to time due to hormonal imbalances and prevents new ones. With prolonged use, I noticed that my fine lines seemed to look smaller. It’s great at improving elasticity for plumper, more youthful looking skin. Overall, it’s a great serum, even though I was worried to use retinol on a regular basis, it gave me nothing but great results without any irritation. My skin really loves it.

#Repost @the_hazel_dragon (@get_repost) ・・・ HappierLivingToday recently posted an online article naming to top 50 Retinol products and the @yeouthskincare Retinol 2.5 Serum* made that list. I can say that my face has been feeling more plump as well as gaining more elasticity because I’ve noticed my skin not feeling like that dry tightness later on in the day. Do I look more youthful? Only a bit more time will tell, but at this point I will take what I can get! I will also add here too that this is my first attempt at a Retinol product and I will say, I really prepared for the side effects in mind. However, this seems very gentle. I also had a concern about the aloe in the product but my face seems to be taking it fairly well. I have noticed a few tiny strawberry patches. This could be part of the initial application period but it’s not the common raised hives with itchiness that I would usually receive from using an aloe product. I will continue to update you as I progress. . . . . . #Yeouth#YeouthSkinCare#retinol#abcommunity#skincarecommunity#beautycommunity#skincare#beauty#asianbeauty#selfcare#skin#antiaging#aloevera#aloe#hyaluronicacid#vitamine

How to Use the Serum:
1. It is advisable to use the serum only at night. Since retinol promotes cell turnover, the new skin is more fragile and needs minimal sun exposure.
2. Always apply on a cleansed face. For best results, first spritz the YEOUTH Balancing Facial Toner on your face.
3. While skin is still damp, apply a pea-sized amount of the YEOUTH 2.5% Retinol Serum to the face and neck areas.
4. You can use the YEOUTH L22 Anti-Aging Facial Moisturizer or Day/Night Cream after the serum is fully absorbed into your skin. These moisturizers support the anti-aging benefits of the serum, and create a barrier on top of skin to retain all the good stuff.
5. Always use an SPF 30 sunscreen or higher on your face, neck and other retinol-treated areas if going outside. Reapply sunscreen regularly especially if you sweat or engage in outdoor activities or sports.
6. In the beginning, it is recommended to use the serum every other night to determine skin sensitivity. If there’s no irritation, continue to use every night.
7. When exposed to the sun and air, Vitamin A derivatives like retinol rapidly break down so please keep the bottle in a cool, dry place and do not expose to light.
