This week I dive into
This week I dive into Rx-strength retinol and why we use it. Prescription retinol is mainly prescribed by dermatologists for a variety of acne and anti-aging purposes in patients.
Q: What is Rx retinol and why do we use it?
A: Retinol comes from the word retinoids. Retinoids are a vitamin-a based molecule. Tretinoin is the all-magical ? retinoid doctors and professionals recommend we use on our skin. So really...what I’m putting on in this video is tretinoin. ?
Retinoids are proven to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, fade dark spots, elevate skin tone/ color and heal acne. They also work to repair the blood vessels in your (very thin and vulnerable) facial skin. Part of the work of retinoids is to break down and “beat up” your skin so that it’s forced to recover. By forcing it to recover so consistently your skin is producing collagen regularly and building elasticity.
Q: What is collagen?
A: Collagen is the main protein our body uses to connect tissue. If we have a lot of stimulated collagen — they stick together strong and firm...instead of breaking apart and causing wrinkles. ?
Who watches Real Housewives of Dallas? The episode with the chicken feet. Chicken feet are FULL of collagen. Cultures in China, Vietnam, the Philippines, and Korea eat the chicken feet because it “keeps them looking youthful”. ???
You have to get this stuff at the doctor's - but here's a link to shop my favorite over-the-counter retinoid serum: http://liketk.it/366s2.
