Everything you need to know about retinol and what it actually does to your skin

If you're constantly on the quest for great skin (who isn't?), and have tried every lotion and potion under the sun to no avail, you might - nay, need - to take heed of this advice.

The skin guru maintains that there's just one ingredient that is super effective on lines and wrinkles.

Hello, retinol.

As the craze for actives and breakthrough skincare ingredients shows no sign of slowing, retinol is one of the few ingredients that has been proven to actually work. And brands are going crazy for it, striving to offer the highest quality version in their products. In fact, you can even get a good dose of retinol in your eye cream now. Plus, even supermarkets are catching onto the trend, with Asda's in-house beauty brand, Nspa, launching the £10 Expert Nightly Revitalising Retinol Capsules, making it the first supermarket to develop and sell these in the market.

So why is everyone pumping their products with retinol?

It's all due to retinol's ability to impressively decrease wrinkles, but it seems there may be another miraculous benefit to the wonder ingredient. Retinol comes highly recommended by dermatologists for its ability to clear up acne.

Just take a look at this before and after:

But - as with any skincare ingredient that will actually impact your skin, you need to use it with caution. Here's everything you need to know before adding retinol to your own skincare regime...

What does retinol do?

First thing’s first - let’s start with what retinol actually does. Many refer to it as the only proven anti-ageing ingredient and that’s kind of on the money - Dr. Murad, dermatologist and founder of Murad Skincare, neatly summarises the action of a retinol as ‘exfoliating, aiding in the production of collagen and fighting free radicals.’ Those three jointly are a pretty powerful skin overhaul.

That said, retinols don’t work equally as well on everyone - you shouldn’t touch the stuff if you suffer from rosacea, eczema, or psoriasis as retinol can make you more vascular - meaning that you will end up with more inflammation and thereby worse symptoms of whatever it is you are suffering from, (though clinical trials have shown PHAs to offset some of the negative sides of using a retinol).

WHAT IS A CLEAN BEAUTY BRAND?

table
When Jane started the line almost 25 years ago now, she was hesitant to describe it as “natural” because she didn’t know how to define that word. What is natural? A handful of earth from my garden? Even that will contain heavy metals and probably some acid rain. Is natural always a good thing? Poison Ivy is natural, so is Nightshade. It made more sense to her to describe their line as “clean.” To Jane it meant scrubbed of those ingredients that they thought had the potential for harming our skin or our health. Though ingredients play a major role in how we define “clean,” they also believe it is important to be mindful of how we impact the environment and our community.

Mindful Product Formulations:


That’s why we’ve found alternative preservative systems to parabens. We pay close attention to anything that’s credited as an endocrine disrupter. We eliminate talc and synthetic fragrance and ingredients that have the potential for causing irritation. Although, this can be a challenge since sensitivity can be caused by anything.For instance, carmine. It’s a natural colorant that saves the need to use FD&C dyes (soluble dyes approved for food, drugs and cosmetics, mostly derived from petroleum or coal tar), but some people can be very allergic to it. And since it comes from beetles, it means that vegans and those practicing kosher can’t use it. This is called a formulator’s dilemma. We made the decision to move away from carmine as much as possible and substitute it for D&C Lakes – insoluble dyes approved for drugs and cosmetics bonded to a calcium substrate. It’s a compromise until something better comes along.


Environmentally Conscious
ingredients
This is the kind of agonising we go through daily in our efforts to keep our line as clean as possible. To do it, we have to keep our hearts, minds and bodies as clean as possible, too. We always ask ourselves what effect our actions are having on animals, our environment, our community. Furthermore, our gardens continue to be an inspiration for everything we do. We plant consciously as we try to support our bees, butterflies and birds that are at the mercy of our choices.

Community Advocates:

Jane always believed that they're only as strong as our weakest link, so they do what they can to support the health of our community which includes sponsoring a farmer's market for six months of the year. Farmers and families all benefit from the opportunity of getting close to the bounty of the land. No pesticides, no GMOs just clean food that tastes great, acts as medicine and brings us all together. This is what clean means to those of us at jane iredale.

What toll does travel take on my skin?

flight

Zero humidity, recycled air, chemicals galore and fluctuating temperatures.You’re strapped to your seat with your knees somewhere near your ears. Sound like in-flight fun to you? Think about what it’s doing to skin:

The unnatural pressurized environment of a plane sucks moisture out of skin, leaving you dehydrated with cracked lips and hands that are super dry. The lack of moving space also means fluid retention in the ankles, stiff joints and puffy eyes and hands.

In-flight skin care can make your journey much more enjoyable. What do Dermalogica jet-setters always have in their carry-ons? Convenient travel-sizes of their skin care favourites!

UltraCalming Cleanser: tiny bathrooms and water need not apply: stay in your seat with this gel/cream cleanser that requires only a tissue for removal (and a little elbow room).

Dermalogica Toner: Choose your favorite mini-size Dermalogica Toner and stuff it in your purse or briefcase. Spritz over skin for a little in-flight oasis that hydrates, refreshes and revives. (Careful not to mist your neighbor…)

Skin Hydrating Booster: This pint-sized product contains Hyaluronic Acid to help smooth fine lines and quench dry spots. Use around the eyes to brighten up before landing.

Dermalogica Moisturiser: Your prescribed moisturiser will keep skin comfortable, but Barrier Repair will really help shield against the plane’s environment.

Don’t forget a little water goes along way. Save the alcohol for your holiday destination, and opt instead for water in-flight.

This was my first purchase from 'Logical' and I genuinely had an excellent experience. I needed the products urgently but forgot to add Special Delivery. I quickly emailed them and they dealt with it straight away the next day. The people I spoke to were polite, friendly and helpful. It was funny how I had to order from a Scottish firm to find the best price and service. I hope Scotland doesn't leave the UK!

have been using Dermalogica Super Rich Repair for some considerable time now and love it. I have bad reactions to lots of product that contain different things, so hence reason I purchase this nourishing moisturising cream. I apply it first thing in the morning and as I have 'mature' skin will continue to do so. I am an older (70***) woman so this is my luxury. Would recommend this Age Smart Cream
