There are certain skincare products that everyone knows they should use – cleansers, moisturizers and sunscreen, but there is another product that EVERYONE should also use – Tretinoin, also known as Retin-A.
Tretinoin is derived from vitamin A. Vitamin A derivatives have been proven to:
- boost collagen production (reducing wrinkles and preventing fine lines),
- speed cell turnover (evening out discolorationand brightening skin tone), and
- unclog pores (making them look smaller and reducing acne).
Skin cells contain retinoid receptors that help regulate how the cell functions. As people age, their cells behave more erratically. Consistent use of tretinoin helps normalize the cells.
Tretinoin is one of the best topical creams available to reverse sun damage and rejuvenate your skin. It can improve skin texture and fade dark spots and freckles because it causes skin cells to turn over more rapidly. It shrinks dilated pores and improves cell turnover within the pores so they are less likely to clog and become blackheads and whiteheads. But what has earned tretinoin its long-held reputation is its ability to affect the retention of collagen.
