Vitamin A is a form of retinol and can be harsh on the skin, so choosing the right retinol-infused product for your skin type is a must for avoiding discomfort and other adverse effects. Vitamin A & E Radiant Skin Renewal uses a mild form of retinol in our formula which is called Retinyl Palmitate and which is generally suitable for all skin types, however sensitive it may be.
Despite the fact that retinyl palmitate is mild, it still addresses the same skincare concerns as stronger retinols would. Retinyl Palmitate boosts collagen in the skin, minimises fine lines and wrinkles, and smooths the texture of the skin. Once it's absorbed into skin, retinyl palmitate is converted to retinoic with the help of enzymes.
Vitamin E is an antioxidant but its main function in skin care is to protect against sun damage. It absorbs the harmful UV light from the sun when applied to the skin. Vitamin E also helps keep your skin hydrated and supple and it is claimed to help with signs of premature ageing such as the formation of fine lines.
Due to the high percentage of Vitamin A Palmytate, It’s best to start with one night a week and build up slowly, adding just one or two additional nights each week. Build up to as often as your skin can tolerate. If you’re experiencing a little irritation or dryness, then back off a little from there. While some people can use retinyl palmitate every night, other people can only handle it three times a week. It really just depends on your skin and what it can tolerate,
it's best to include retinyl palmitate in your nighttime skincare routine. and to use a pea-sized amount of product, applying it onto clean skin before your moisturizer.
When using any type of retinoid, it's important to wear sunscreen, since vitamin A can increase sun sensitivity.
