Retinol, a wonder ingredient in skincare, is known for its ability to treat common skincare concerns such as dehydration, unevenness, pigmentation, fine lines, and wrinkles by increasing the synthesis of collagen and stimulating the production of new blood vessels in the skin. Additional benefits include fading age spots, softening rough patches on the skin surface, evening out pigmentation and unclogging pores.
These benefits are a result of new skin cells beings generated faster at the topmost layer of the skin. This increased skin cell turnover unclogs pores which have increased in size due to sun damage thereby making pores appear smaller. Retinols can also be combined with chemical exfoliants most commonly Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) for additional skin smoothing effects
How to use Retinol on your skin.
Retinol is most commonly incorporated to skincare routines by applying to the skin topically. MZ Skin’s Hydrate and Nourish features a pioneering combination of non-irritant retinol and SPF 30, tackling hypersensitivity to the sun while simultaneously refining the complexion. With continued use skin also feels more hydrated due to hyaluronic acid in the moisturiser which restores skin’s moisture.
Best results are revealed when it is combined with alpha hydroxy acids that can be found in MZ Skin Cleanse and Clarify and MZ Skin Radiance and Renewal, both of which chemically exfoliate the skin to reveal smoother, brighter, hydrated and more radiant skin.
