Retinoids

What: Vitamin A derivative that increases cell turnover

-retinoic acid is most potent and prescription form

- retinol has to be converted to retinoic acid once on the skin and is 20x LESS potent

Why?

- FDA-approved for acne

- decreases oil on skin- great for oily skin, large pores, pimple spot treatment, and milia-prone skin

- Improves sun damage

- Lightens dark spots in 6-12 months time

-Improves and prevents fine lines/wrinkles when: at night (wash off in AM) because makes you more sensitive to the sun Where: face, neck, and sometimes chest and back ( use on back for acne)

How: 1 finger tip unit dabbed in 4-5 places on face then massage in after cleansing before moisturizer (sometimes after moisturizer when first begin using) and avoid nasal crease

Side effects: dry, flaky skin apply the right amount, start slow, MOISTURIZE Start SLOW: 2-3 nights per week to start working up to every night.

Listen to your skin! Don’t use if dry and flaky. Skip that night and restart when skin has recovered.

Who: everyone except in pregnancy and breastfeeding... Bakuchiol is considered a retinoid alternative that is safe in pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Differin gel (adapalene 0.1% available in acne aisle at drugstore) is the only retinoic acid available over-the-counter and required a prescription before 2017

When: at night (wash off in AM) because makes you more sensitive to the sun

Where: face, neck+ acne on face and back

Did you know? There are not that many ingredients in skincare.

The marketing and different mixtures = the expansive skincare market.

When I create a #customskincare routine, I’m grouping ingredients in the right concentration and vehicle (serum v moisturizer) for YOU, your skin and goals.

I don’t get excited about a product until I turn it around and check out the active ingredients👏🏼
