MOSCOW, 5 March – RIA Novosti. Scientists told what component of facial products is needed to improve skin condition. Writes about this 20 minutos.
Experts from the Institute of Dermatology in Barcelona said that thanks to its properties, retinol helps fight age spots, acne scars, and also improves the texture and appearance of the skin.
Retinol is the active form of vitamin A, which is soluble in fats or oils. It has antioxidant properties and is therefore most commonly used in many cosmetics to treat skin problems.
Experts noted that retinol also stimulates collagen production, which slows down the aging process of the skin.
Scientists from the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology emphasize that it also helps to treat cellulite by helping to increase the elasticity and increase the thickness of the dermis.
According to a study, applying retinol twice a day for six months improved skin condition.
However, experts warn that some people with sensitive skin may experience redness or irritation of the skin after using products with this component.
It is noted that in order to achieve more effective results, treatment with retinoic acid (Retin-A) in higher concentrations is allowed only after consultation with a specialist.
