What Is Retinol and How Does It Work?
Embarking on a journey of incorporating retinol into your skincare ritual opens a realm of possibilities for renewing your skin. As you begin this transformative process, it is essential to always start with a calming mindset. Let's explore some key points that will guide you on this path to radiant skin.
First of all, what is retinol? Retinoids have been both clinically studied and used for decades industry-wide by skincare professionals such as dermatologists and estheticians. It’s a popular derivative of vitamin A that varies in potency. We formulated our lightweight serum formula to be potent yet gentle enough for all skin types.
Retinol Benefits for Your Skin
Retinol has many benefits for the skin at any age and is known for making the skin glow, look smoother, and more plump. Here are some of the many benefits:
♦ reducing the appearance of fine lines
♦ softening visible wrinkles
♦ fading the appearance of dark spots and discoloration
♦ helps improve the appearance of skin elasticity and firmness
♦ helps improve complexion and even out skin tone
How to Use Retinol in Your Skincare Ritual
The timing of retinol application plays a vital role in its effectiveness.
The evening is the opportune time to incorporate retinol into your routine, as this is when it can work its magic while you rest peacefully during the night. Sunlight can neutralize some of the effects of retinol and can even lead to skin sensitivity.
So make sure to think of and include retinol in your nighttime ritual. Applying retinol before bed promotes the natural renewal of skin cells and encourages fresh, vibrant skin brighter than a full moon.
How to Use Retinol With Other Skincare Products
First, gently cleanse the skin. We love using our toning Celestial Cleanser with a gentle kaolin clay your skin will love.
Next, let the skin dry completely. You’ll want to apply any retinoids on dry skin to keep the product activating just below the skin's surface and not penetrating too deeply into the layers.
Then apply our luscious and silky Retinol Reset serum. It's lightweight and feels heavenly.
To start, try applying every other day. You can follow a method called skin cycling that implements a schedule of using active ingredients followed by days of rest. If you're using AHAs, like the gentle TriDroxy Acid Blend® packed in our Glow Serum, try using Retinol Reset on a different evening.
Then, take one or two nights with no active ingredients to allow the skin to adjust.
Finally, a rich moisturizer will be your best friend in your retinol-infused skincare ritual to deter any potential dryness. Choose a moisturizer rich in nourishing ingredients, hydrating your skin and replenishing its moisture barrier, like Tru Alchemy’s Quench Crème.
The synergistic combination of retinol and moisturizer provides a harmonious balance, ensuring that your skin stays dewy and soft throughout the retinol journey. This will soothe and protect your skin, allowing it to adapt gracefully to the transformative powers of retinol.
Side Effects and Precautions
It is important to note that during the initial stages of using retinol, you may experience some occasional dryness. However, do not fret, as this is a natural part of the adjustment process. Your skin is simply acclimating to it. Embrace this phase as a temporary skin transformation and a sign that the retinol works diligently to renew your complexion.
That said, if you’re not currently a devout daily SPF wearer, now is the time. SPF is absolutely a must-do, especially when using any retinol. It protects the skin’s reset process and keeps it youthful.
In the morning, after cleansing, we love adding a few drops of Glow Serum to our skin to brighten it before applying our favorite SPF.
Just remember a few key things as you embark on your Tru Alchemy retinol journey: the importance of evening application, expect a short period of initial dryness, and the role of moisturization. With the introduction of our Retinol Reset, your nightly skincare ritual will be transformative, unveiling a renewed and more luminous complexion.
