The Power of Vitamin A


They say the eyes are the window to your soul; well the skin is the window to your health.  Our skin communicates so much about how we are, including indications of our age and well-being. Our skin is on show every day of our lives and also acts as a barrier against external challenges, so healthy skin is not only vital to appearance but it’s also very important for overall health too.

Unfortunately, although we all wish it didn’t happen, our skin from our 30’s onwards begins to deteriorate. This is accelerated by exposure to UV rays from daylight/sunlight and other factors such as pollution and smoking can also enhance the problem. The skins elasticity, firmness and smoothness is reduced and eventually this leads to the lines and wrinkles that we all hate so much.

But don’t despair too much there is a solution!

Stepping back into the limelight with a few developments after a few years hidden away is Retinol (Vitamin A). It was first identified in the 1930 and in 1971 became FDA approved as a prescription strength treatment for acne. But soon enough Dermatologists and Patients began to report that not only was there a reduction in their acne but also in their wrinkles and pigmentation too!

The Beauty industry is now flooded with peptides, growth factors, glacial water etc. etc. but nearly all Skin care specialists agree that aside from Sunscreen being the best anti-ager, Vitamin A is the next best thing.

Vitamin A is essential to healthy skin, it promotes the production and differentiation of skin cells and has been clinically proven to regenerate aging and sun damaged skin.

The Skin Problems Retinol can significantly improve include:

  • Facial Wrinkles, including those around the eye and crow’s feet (great for those who are against Botox or who are scared of needles)
  • Skin laxity and tightness
  • Hyper Pigmentation
  • Skin Brightness
