Over the years, there have been many claims, NEW, GREAT and NOT SO GREAT ingredient claims that have come and gone. But still, you cannot beat the tried and tested VItamins. Predominately Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and Vitamin B. We cannot rely on one ingredient or vitamin alone, but I feel that Vitamin A, in the right form is one of the most effective, for the treatment of many different skin issues. It helps increase cell turnover of basal cells (Our lowest layer of skin cells in the epidermis) helps encourage healthy epidermal thickening. Helps the top layer of our skin become more compact to reflect light better.
Did you know that Retinoids (Derived from Vitamin A) have been used topically for many many years in anti-aging skincare? It was scientifically tested and proven to be effective for, not only its amazing anti-aging effects, but in other forms, it can help reduce acne and even help treat Rosacea.
Vitamin A comes in a few different forms being that it is a family called retinoids. The ideal Retinoid in the family, for the skin, is Retinaldehyde It is the most effective in the retinoid family while being the gentlest. So maximum benefits with minimal to no irritation. Help by reducing the overproduction of melanin, and oil production. While increasing collagen renewal. It also inhibits the production of an enzyme that breaks down collagen. While encouraging new stronger capillary production. In it's ideal form (retinaldehyde) and with a good lipophilic delivery system, topical vitamin A can help increase collagen, reduce oil flow, repair damaged cells with minimal irritation. Our new Skindividual products have not just one Vitamin A serum, but 2 powerhouse Vit A products! We can prescribe the best one for you.
One more thing, Vitamin A deficiency can show on the skin as dull, scaly, dry skin, as cell turnover slows, and reduced desquamation. Desquamation is the natural shedding of the top (outermost) layer of the skin. So we need topical Vitamin A, along with other skin vitamins.
*Disclaimer: Topical Vitamin A is not suitable for certain skin conditions and sensitivities. It is best to seek advice from a qualified Skin Expert prior to commencing usage of Topical Vitamin A.
