It is a powerful anti-aging agent that works wonders on acne-prone skin. It’s also an active ingredient, which can irritate if used too much. What is the element? Retinol. This blog will answer your most frequently asked questions about Retinol. We’ll explain what it is, its benefits, and the clinical products that you can use to firm, smooth, and brighten your skin overnight.
Why Kate Loves Retino
Kate, our founder, loves Retinol. She says, “I make all my clients older than 30 use it two to three days a week.” It’s an all-rounder when it comes to visible aging repair. It helps remove environmental damage, reduces wrinkles, minimizes pores, improves skin texture, and removes brown spots.
Does Retinol Help with Anti-Aging
Topically applying Retinol helps reduce wrinkles by increasing the skin’s moisture retention. Your skin will become more hydrated as it becomes softer and smoother. Retinol can also help to soften wrinkles and even out skin tone. It’s also a good exfoliator. It unclogs pores and removes dead skin cells. By removing the top layers of the skin, exfoliation can reduce fine lines and wrinkles. This is a great way to repair visible aging.
Does Retinol Help Acne
Kate says, “We saw a visible improvement in my son’s skin when he started using retinol.”
How does Retinol help acne-prone skin to heal? Retinol has exfoliating properties that help to prevent acne and remove existing breakouts. Exfoliating these new skin layers also helps to even out your complexion and minimize acne scarring. Retinol has many benefits, including exfoliating acne-prone skin. It also helps clear breakouts because of its anti-inflammatory and antibiotic properties.
How can I pair Retinol with other active ingredients
You may wonder if you can combine Retinol and niacinamide in your skincare routine to combat aging. What are some other active ingredients that help firm the skin? You may wonder if you can use Retinol with salicylic acids if you focus more on acne clearing.
We’ve answered the top questions about Retinol in other blogs, but we believe educating yourself on how retinol-containing products are formulated is essential.
How does Kate Somerville formulate with Retinol
As mentioned, Retinol is an active ingredient that can irritate the skin. We are Skin Health Experts and have the science of formulating ingredients down to a fine art. We combine highly active ingredients and soothing essentials for visible results. You’ll often find that our products have several elements with similar functions. Connecting them expertly allows you to achieve visible results with no downtime. It may seem not very easy in the hands of a professional, but we aim to make skincare easy.
How do I start using Retinol
For those who are new to Retinol, we recommend a product with Retinol that is expertly formulated. This will mimic the results of Retinol while avoiding irritation. Kate’s clinic-inspired Oxygen facial, DermalQuench(tm)+ Retinol, is clinically formulated to include both Retinol & HPR (as retinoic ester), delivering active ingredients directly into the skin. This helps reduce the appearance of pores and wrinkles while improving skin tone.
The skin can be treated with this gentle formula multiple times per week. Start by using it once or twice per week. Then, depending on the age of your skin, increase the frequency. For example, Kate recommends using Rusing five days a week. After 50weekch, Retinol products deliver the best visible results for anti-aging
Our KateCeuticals ™ Resurfacing overnight Peel is another retinol-based product that provides visible results quickly. It is clinically formulated and contains a retinol compound delivered through a controlled release method. Our Retinol is encapsulated in ceramides that remain on the skin’s surface. This allows it to be released more quickly into the skin’s lipids. It visibly improves skin firmness and promotes cell turnover, which helps smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.
How Does Kate Combine Retinol with Other Active Ingredients
We are Skin Health Experts and take pride in formulating retinol-based products that deliver results quickly without downtime. We love combining powerful ingredients, salicylic and Retinol, to create our Eradikate(r), Salicylic Acid Acne Therapy. These ingredients are lightweight and expertly formulated to help reduce breakouts and improve blackheads and pimples. Kate Somerville Retinol firming eye cream is another effective eye treatment with Retinol. The eye cream contains Retinol, bio retinol, and a combination to smooth and firm the area around the eyes without irritation.
Kate’s +Retinol C Vita Serum is a powerful duo of ingredients that can target visible signs. Despite being highly active, Kate’s team of experts combined Retinol with vitamin C. Pure Retinol and ascorbic Acid (pure Vitamin C) combined in a clinically stabilized formulation to smooth and & brighten skin overnight. Use it once or twice weekly, on alternate evenings, to see results quickly.
