And How can it Help me Look Younger?

This complexion caused by smoking
 cigarettes can be improved with retinol

Over the past several years, Retinol has featured in the health, fitness and skin care media as the latest and greatest cure-all for skin problems. Anti-ageing product companies say that it's a miracle cure for all those inevitable wrinkles and signs of ageing.

Retinol is an animal form of vitamin A which is also found in fresh vegetables. It is both an diterpenoid and an alcohol that is convertible into other forms of vitamin A.  The retinyl ester derivative of the alcohol serves as the storage form of the vitamin in animal products like fish oils and liver and is referred to as a 'retinoid'.

Retinoid forms of vitamin A are used in cosmetic and medical applications applied to the skin. Retinoic acid, termed Tretinoin in clinical usage, is used in the treatment of acne and keratosis pilaris in a topical cream. An isomer of tretinoin, isotretinoin is also used orally (under the trade names Accutane and Roaccutane), generally for severe or recalcitrant acne.

Retinol supports the production and growth of new skin cells growth and helps to repair damaged cells. The main cause of skin damage is from the sun, secondary causes are from pollution, smoking and the toxins in many skin care products like parabens. You often can see the effects that smoking cigarettes can have on your friend's faces when they are smokers.

But does it really work to help prevent the signs of premature ageing?

It is well documented that Retinol is an anti-oxidant that may be beneficial in reducing free radicals which can lead to certain cancers because Retinol helps to facilitate normal cell growth. Retinol was initially used as a treatment to help people who suffered from acne, but soon other results were noticed. Sun damage and wrinkles were also noticeably affected by making skin feel firmer and softer.

Retinol has a natural ability to be absorbed through the first layers of your skin into the deeper layers containing collagen and elastin. Elastin is a protein that helps to maintain your skin's elasticity and collagen actually works by helping to maintain your skin's firmness. Elastin is not produced by your body after puberty, so if your diet is lacking Retinol or your body is not processing this vitamin, applying retinol to your skin is one of the best ways to support your skins elasticity.

Therefore it can help to improve skin cells on your face and reduce the signs of ageing. It's best used as a topical cream and not that while it can be taken internally, it can be toxic, so special care must be taken.  Over time,  skin condition improves, dead skin is sloughed off and new cells have more vitality. Age spots, fine lines and wrinkles may fade away after only a few weeks of regular use.

Finding a product that contains Retinol is an excellent way to address your anti-ageing concerns. Products like Kollagen Intensiv have been clinically proven to not only reduce fine lines and wrinkles but also to help repair damaged skin caused by the sun and other affects. The scientists and researchers who developed this amazing anti-aging product containing retinol guarantee results – so you have nothing to lose except a few wrinkles and age spots! So why not give Kollagen Intensiv a try. You will be happy that you did.

While miracle cures generally reside only in our imaginations, good skincare actually comes from within. This is why it's so important to develop a healthy lifestyle, to avoid excess of the things likely to cause us damage and of course to eat well. But there are times when some extra help is needed.
