Why Applying Retinol & Vitamin C Prevent and Reverse Aging Skin
Many wrinkles can be prevented and treated with good topical skin products, good nutrition and modern technology like alpha hydroxy peeling. The best way to build collagen and elastin fibers to keep your skin looking youthful is to peel off dead skin build-up and use creams and serums that build collagen. Anything that builds collagen in your skin will help to maintain skin thickness, glow, and reflectivity. The best crèmes are retinol that have proven time and again to convert to trenetoin in our body making retinol just as effective and much less irritating than straight Retin-A.
Vitamin-A crèmes are the gold standard along with Vitamin C with 25 years of good data to support their collagen building evidence. Retinol and Vitamin C help shed the outer layer of dead skin because they send a signal to the deeper layers of skin to become more active and build collagen. When it comes to acne, it is also best to use retinol crèmes such as our
T4 Extreme Retinol Crème that is less drying and irritating to the skin and causes less redness than traditional acne medications. Retinol helps acne by unclogging pores and preventing clogs (comedones) from forming. Retinol crèmes are also excellent for preventing and controlling blackheads and whiteheads.
Using Vitamin C and Retinol underneath the eyes as the main ingredients found in T4's Collagen Boosting Face Repair Crème helps to strengthen the skin and prompt new collagen to be made. Bottom line-T4's Collagen Boosting Face Repair Creme with Vitamin C & Retinol used in conjunction with any of T4's SPF 30 titanium or zinc oxide broad spectrum physical sun blocks are the skin's two best defenses against premature wrinkling.
RETINOL has the power to make skin look younger, smoother and better. Retinol is the pure form of Vitamin A and speeds up cell turnover in order to fight acne and diminish sun damage and wrinkles. Retinol is also praised for its ability to produce new collagen. Retinol stimulates fibroblasts, cells that create collagen and inhibit collagen destroying enzymes. Applying retinol helps to keep the skin intact and less susceptible to damage.
What is Retinol? Retinol is pure and active Vitamin A. Vitamin A is one of the few substances with a small enough molecular structure to penetrate the outer layers of the skin and work to repair the lower layers of the skin where collagen and elastin reside. This allows it to repair and stimulate collagen and elastin, creating firmer, smoother skin. Retinol is also a good alternative for those with sensitive skin who cannot tolerate straight tretinoin, commonly referred to as Retin-A.
Retinol works to increase cell turnover and exfoliation by stimulating cell production underneath the skin. This process slows down with age allowing layers of dead, thick, sun damaged skin cells to remain on the surface. As a result skin looks dull and thick, pores look large, and sun-related damage such as age spots and blotchiness appear. The acceleration of cell turnover caused by the use of retinol will encourage the exfoliation of these dead skin cells and allow new, healthier cells to appear. Skin will appear smoother, softer; pores will appear smaller and less noticeable; and signs of aging will start to diminish.
Studies have found that this cell rejuvenation due to Retinol application produces healthier, plumper skin cells. As we age skin cells start to become slightly misshapen and altered in appearance. The new skin cells stimulated by use of vitamin A start to more closely resemble the younger, healthier skin cells of our youth. Use of vitamin A has also been shown to stimulate new collagen production.
The increased cell turnover caused by vitamin A has also been shown to be particularly helpful on acne patients. The skin exfoliation unclogs pores and helps fade acne scars. Retinol visibly improves the appearance of:
- Fine lines in 4 weeks
- Wrinkles in 12 weeks
- Mottled Pigmentation
- Skin texture and smoothness
- Skin tone and color
Retinol is most active in the epidermis where the skin cells are developing but it does penetrate as far as the dermis and combines 4 wrinkle fighter in 1: Retinol is an exfoliating agent because it increases cell turnover, it helps build collagen, it protects collagen fibers from damage by blocking the action of collagen-digesting enzymes and it is an antioxidant that combats free radical damage. Make sure to use any of T4’s-4 sun block products after applying retinol in the day hours to protect the effectiveness of retinol.
THE IMPORTANCE OF TOPICAL VITAMIN C
Vitamin C is considered a potent antioxidant for the skin. Vitamin C is a valuable antioxidant & protector against photo-damage that is created by both UVA & UVB sunlight bands. Topical Vitamin C is able to deliver a higher dosage to the needed skin area over oral Vitamin C supplementation. Topical Vitamin C augments the skin’s ability to neutralize reactive oxygen singlets (free radical damage) that are created by ultra violet radiation, thereby preventing photo damage to the skin. Topical Vitamin C becomes an integral part of the skin & remains unaffected by bathing, exercise, clothing or makeup.
Used appropriately, topical Vitamin C like T4 20% Vitamin C Super Serum w/ B3, B5, E & Ferulic or Collagen Boosting Face Repair Crème w/ Retinol & C is an important adjunct to the use of sun blocks, an adjunctive treatment to lessen skin redness, an excellent psoriasis healer, and a helpful adjunct to Active-A Retinol in the treatment of fine wrinkles and a stimulant to wound healing…It has been scientifically proven that using Vitamin C on a daily basis increases elasticity by 14%. However, TOPICAL VITAMIN C DOES NOT REPLACE THE NEED TO APPLY ON OF T4’S 4 DAILY SPF 30 SUN BLOCK PROTECTANTS. BOTTOM LINE BENEFITS OF VITAMIN C
Vitamin C is an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and collagen stimulator to inhibit wrinkles. It controls oily skin, hydrates and shields against UV rays in a way that sun block can’t.
