Retinol Night Repair is an intensive anti-aging night time skin treatment that effectively reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Additionally, it improves the tone, texture and radiance of the skin for a younger, healthier complexion. Featuring retinol, a superstar anti-aging ingredient, as well as retinyl palmitate and alpha lipoic acid, Retinol Night Repair provides the most dynamic results possible without a prescription.
Retinol is a retinoid, or derivative of vitamin A. Perhaps best known by its prescription formula Retin-A (tretinoin topical), Retinol previously had a reputation as being both very effective and very irritating. However, recent research into how skin converts retinol into retinoic acid has yielded a form of retinol that is much less irritating. Retinol is hailed as being one of the best anti-aging products, second only to sunscreen.
Retinol works as an effective cellular communication ingredient. It accelerates cell renewal, which is naturally slowed by the aging process. It also stimulates the production of collagen as well as has an inhibitory effect on the enzymes that break down collagen. Retinol also helps minimize the appearance of pores by preventing clogged pores through exfoliation and the stretching of pore walls through increased collagen production.
Retinyl Palmitate is another type of retinoid and behaves in a similar way to retinol. By itself, retinyl palmitate is secondary in performance to retinol, but as an additional ingredient in Retinol Night Repair, it boots the overall efficacy of retinol resulting in more dramatic results.
Alpha Lipoic Acid has been heralded as a “miracle in a jar” for its anti-aging benefits. Alpha lipoic acid prevents and reverses the glycation of collagen; a process that causes stiffness and loss of elasticity.
