Winter time is the best to use a prescription strength retinol
It is hard to decide what to put in your beauty bag!
Here’s what’s in “my beauty bag”
Winter is the best time to step up your at home skincare regimen. This is also the safest time to book professional treatments with your esthetician so check with him or her before starting any prescription strength product.
Retinol is just about the most popular product on the market these days. Studies have shown that retinol helps with cell regeneration and collagen production to prevent aging and treats the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Since Retinol is so potent, it also helps lighten age spots from both internal and external factors. Internal meaning from hormones (melasma) and external meaning from sun (freckles/spots). Additionally, retinol has the added bonus of minimizing the appearance of pore size, while correcting blemishes associated with problematic skin. Skin Media makes a retinol formulation at a 0.5% potency with anti-inflammatory properties to diminish some of the redness that can be associated with retinol use.
If MELASMA is what you want to treat I highly recommend combining a retinol therapy with Hydro-Q, a prescription strength skin lightener. Using both of these therapies together increase your chances of reducing melasma. If this is your first time using a Retinol, I would advise you to use it 2-3 days a week at first to acclimate your skin to the strength. If your skin can tolerate everyday use then you can advance onto an everyday application.
