Proof of Retinol Face Cream Benefits
Researchers at the University of Michigan Health System, tested creams and lotions containing Retinol – Vitamin A on the skin of elderly patients.
Their study found that skin care products containing retinol had a positive effect on the production of the body’s own collagen, resulting in an improvement in appearance and smoothing of the study groups skin.
“Wrinkles, roughness and overall aging severity were all significantly reduced in the retinol-treated arm compared with the control arm, according to the study, which appears in the May issue of the journal Archives of Dermatology.”
Self Testing Face Creams
It is recommended that you test a small amount of any new cream you try on an easily cover-able part of your face or neck. Give it a few hours to see if you have any allergic reaction, and wipe off if it starts to sting on initial application. Do not apply to tattoos. Please also do not expose any of your face to direct sunlight for any extended period when you use a retinol face cream. Studies and reviews have indicated that damage can occur to your skin by uv rays. Anecdotal evidence suggests the retinol makes your skin more receptive to the uv damage. If you are going to be exposed to sunlight for an extended period and just have to use your retinol face cream, then getting a cream with uv protection is advised.
