The Truth About Retinol

Published

What is all the hype around Retinol? Retinols have been making headlines for several years now as some sort of wonder skincare ingredient, but are they really as good as all that? And what exactly is it, and why should you use it?

The benefits of retinol

Retinol benefits include reduction in the appearance of fine lines, refining skin texture and reducing the appearance of pores.

What is it?

Retinol is the antioxidant derivative of Vitamin A. Vitamin A is a powerful ingredient that speeds up cell turnover and protects the skin from free radical damage.

How does it work?

The effects of retinol can help prevent lines, wrinkles and spots from forming in the first place. It works by absorbing into the skin and breaking down into retinoic acid. This is a compound that affects the chemistry of skin cells and their behaviours. This can help increase collagen production and improve skin elasticity. It can also increase skin thickness, improve skin texture, and create a more even skin tone, making it an idea ingredient for those with skin discolouration, or damage from the sun.

Are there side effects?

If you’ve never used Retinol before, you should be aware of initial side effects, such as skin dryness and peeling. This will subside as your skin gets used to the product, and then you’ll start to see the amazing benefits.

Which product should I try?

We always start you on the GSR Fundamental 5 with ZO (Cleanse, polish, tone, DPD,SPF) for 4-6 weeks then let the magic happen with a range of Retinol products even suitable for the most sensitive of skins!
