When it comes to skincare and anti-aging, there is only one ingredient for the job to get serious
results: Vitamin A. Also known as retinol, Vitamin A has become the Holy Grail of skincare. It was originally pioneered to help fight acne. However, after dermatologists witnessed the impact it had
on reducing wrinkles and aging, Vitamin A became a staple in skincare. It has now become an incredibly popular ingredient in both treating acne and anti-ageing products.
Yet, despite all the benefits of this wonder ingredient, many people are unsure how to introduce
it into their skincare regime, Environ gives us the lowdown on what we need to know.
SO WHAT DOES
Studies have found that Vitamin A improves skin’s top layer, protecting it against
environmental pollution and that supplementing with Vitamin A can reduce the risk of developing skin cancer by up to 40% in women. It has also been proven to help prevent collagen being broken down
for firmer and more radiant skin, improving the appearance of lines and wrinkles, skin tone and texture. Vitamin A can also improve acne prone skin, speeding up healing and minimsing
break-outs. It can also improve skin’s moisture levels.
SHOULD I USE IT AND IS THERE SUCH A THING AS TOO MUCH?
Vitamin A should be combined with other nutrients and should be used daily. You can
also take it internally in supplements. Despite the vital role it plays, around 95% of women don’t get enough Vitamin A, which means their skin is not as healthy as it should be. By applying Vitamin
A to the skin both topically and internally, you are giving their skin the essential tools it needs to combat the signs of ageing.
THIN YOUR SKIN?
The simple answer is no. Studies show that Vitamin A can actually strengthen and thicken skin, so
the theory that it will have a thinning effect is a complete misconception. Vitamin A is actually essential in feeding the skin, just as humans become very thin when they are starving, so does the skin.
WHAT IF YOU
SUFFERA REACTION, DOES THAT MEAN IT DOESN’T AGREE WITH YOUR SKIN?
If the skin receives too much Vitamin A too quickly it can result in a reaction, which
causes skin to become red and sore. The key is to gradually introduce Vitamin A, and start with a mild form. Skincare brands such as Environ have a step-up system, which start with a moisturiser
containing low levels of Vitamin A. Once your skin becomes used to the product you can progress to a stronger form.
CAN I EXPECT?
Vitamin A will result in healthier and crucially younger looking skin. Your skin will
become firmer and smoother because there are more moisturising factors which plump it out. It will also increase collagen production, the key to youthful skin, improving fine lines and wrinkles and
reduce pigmentation and uneven skin tone. It will also speed up healing, prevent break-outs and boost skin’s moisture, to give dull skin a glow. No other skincare ingrediant has been shown to have so
many rejuvenating skin benefits, which is why everyone in the world needs to replace the Vitamin A in their skin,not only to help us age more gracefully but, more importantlyto maintain good
and healthy skin.
