What is a Retinoid and What Does It do?

What is a Retinoid and What Does It do?

Retinoids are creams that help you keep your skin firm by slowing down the breakdown of collagen, lighten the brown spots caused by sun exposureimprove elasticity and thickness, and minimize the appearance of wrinkles. They are so popular because unlike many other beauty products, retinoid have research and tests behind them and advanced chemical scientific knowledge. 

It first became available in the 70s, but was been developed to cure acne. However, scientists noticed how the patients’ skin started looking healthier and younger. This led to further research and development, and the crème started being used for skin issues such as wrinkles, warts, psoriasis, and sun exposure blotchiness.  

 

How Does it Work? 

Most people think that because of the redness and skin peeling in the first week of use, the retinoids cause the skin to become thinner, which isn’t actually true, and we are about to explain why. 

Retinoid works by speeding up the skin’s cell growth process by making the old skin cells die and be discarded faster. In addition, it blocks the breakdown of collagen and stops wrinkles from showing up by thickening the skin’s deeper layers.   

As for brown or darker spots on the face, retinoid causes the skin to produce less dark pigment in the problematic areas making your different skin tones look much more even. 

 

Non-Precription or Prescription? 

When it comes to the dilemma of choosing the non-prescription or prescription products, you need to know that the prescription products are much stronger than the non-prescription ones, but are more effective. However, they are also more aggressive and in some cases, not suitable for sensitive skin. 

On the other hand, non-prescription products, even though are less aggressive, and usually better to start with when it comes to rejuvenating your skin, they are “lighter” on the ingredients, and in some cases, might not work at all, or you will need a month or more of usage to notice the difference.
