Retinoids are forms of vitamin A and have been used in dermatology and skin care for decades. They are an amazing group of compounds with many actions including: regulating skin cell growth, stimulating new collagen production, controlling acne and even treating skin cancers.
Vitamin A must be selected and used carefully as too much or one too strong can lead to irritation. Start with a gentle product and slowly move up as your skin develops tolerance. If new to these products, get advice at ASKINOLOGY before starting so that you can be given a personalised programme.
