Retin A also known as tretinoin is the best thing for your skin, if you were stuck on a desert island with only one skin care product for years this is the one you would want. Retin A comes from retinoic acid which is a metabolite of Vitamin A. Tretinoin has been used to treat acne for which it was orginally developed for. While using it as an acne treatment doctors and scientists discovered the other amazing skin renewing qualities of this miraculous substance.
Retin A exfoliates the skin promoting new cell growth and helping to shed the old ones bringing out the brighter skin beneath. This helps even out your skin tone, treat pigmentation spots, wrinkles, and scars. Not only does it have great exfoliation qualities but it also boosts collagen and elastin production beneath the skin on a cellular level. This is what really helps to get rid of wrinkles and fine lines by firming the skin, which makes those wrinkles and fine lines gradually disappear.
Retin A is usually put on at night time before you’re ready to go to bed. First the face is washed thoroughly and allowed to completely dry. Next a small amount, usually a pea sized amount is sufficient is rubbed into the skin avoiding the eyes and mouth. Wash your face well again when you awake.
It can cause some irritation at first so it should only be applied once every few days until your skin becomes more used to it then you can increase the frequency. It takes some time to reap the benefits of Retin A but it is well worth it and nearly every cosmetic surgeon would agree.
