As skin ages, it looses its inherent Vitamin A (retinol). Vitamin A’s primary role is to normalize a multitude of skin functions and correct the potential skin conditions that develop as a result of aging. One of Vitamin A’s tasks involves thickening and stimulating the dermis, namely the area where collagen and elastin are secreted. It also helps normalize the topmost layer if skin, the epidermis. A smooth epidermis allows light to bounce off without scattering. Put simply, Vitamin A creates glowing skin!
Vitamin A treats many conditions
Vitamin A (retinol) is the gold standard anti-aging solutions. Not only does it help increase the deposits of collagen and elastin within the skin’s dermal layer, but it also reduces their breakdown, a process that intensifies as you age. In addition to maintaining the youthful appearance of the skin longer, vitamin A prevents various unpleasant conditions, such as:
- Lessens the symptoms of rosacea and promotes wound healing by normalizing blood flow in the deep layers of the skin.
- Diminishes the chances of pigmentation and brown spots because it prevents the clustering of the melanin granules.
- Can help treat acne as it improves cell turnover.
- Vitamin A can also help destroy pre-cancerous skin lesions.
- Despite popular belief, it actually improves hydration in and around the skin cell
Some products are better than others
Generally speaking, all forms of topical vitamin A are effective and will provide results in the long run. The key difference in efficiency between vitamin A based products stems from the way their active ingredients are transported to the deepest layers of the skin. Below is the product line Dr. Gerstman prefers.
- Results RX
Results RX is an organic skin care line that employs a very high concentration of active ingredients. Its efficacy doesn’t only come from the lack of chemicals and irritants, but also the ingredients that have been chirally corrected to ensure less irritation and inflammation. In addition the Vitamin is specially encapsulated to help with product penetration and minimize irritation significantly. And most importantly, the line contains several strengths of Vitamin A. This allows clients to start slowly to minimize irritation. Eventually clients build up a tolerance and can increase the Vitamin A strength. And the products smell devine!
