Retinol Can Be Your Skincare Super Power

Have you ever questioned whether you would ever find a skincare product that can actually produce noticeable results for your skin? If you are in need of some anti-aging skincare magic, try retinol. Retinol will not only minimize wrinkles and related signs of aging but create a brighter, clearer, and smoother complexion.

What Is Retinol?

Retinol, also known as retinoid, is a form of vitamin A. Retinol can be applied to the skin for anti-aging effects. Retinol can be organized into three categories:

  • Over The Counter: Over-the-counter retinol products are the most gentle type of retinol and cause the least amount of irritation. These products do not normally list the strength level of retinol in them as they are ester-forms of the formula. For this reason, over-the-counter retinol products are less effective and do not show significant changes in the skin. 
  • Medical Grade: Medical grade retinol is the product category that Vivier’s 0.3% Retinol SR Complex falls under. These products can also be purchased over the counter and will contain a certain level of retinol in the formula making consistent use produce significant results in the skin's appearance. 
  • Prescription Grade: Prescription grade retinol is the strongest form of retinol available. This retinol will produce changes in the skin's appearance much quicker than other retinol options but also causes more redness, peeling, and irritation.

How Can Retinol Help My Skin?

Retinol provides support within three categories of skincare:

  • Stimulates the production of collagen
  • Speeds up cell turnover rate, which helps diminish the appearance of wrinkles and improves skin texture, tone, and clarity
  • Regulates sebum production

How Do I Use Retinol?

Retinol products tend to irritate the skin at the beginning of use. This may cause redness or peeling of the skin. To avoid this, start by using lower strengths every second night. This will allow your skin to slowly acclimate to the product. After 2-3 weeks you may use the product every night. As you continue to use retinol you may also purchase higher strengths. For best results, press the formula into the skin instead of rubbing it in.
When using this product, keep in mind that it makes your skin more sensitive and susceptible to sunburn. Ensure you are using a daily facial sunscreen to protect your face from sun damage and expedited signs of aging.

What Makes Vivier Retinol Superior?

Vivier has created specialized retinol formulas that feature several powerful ingredients including: 

  • Retinol
  • Slow-release technology
  • Antioxidants
  • Squalane
  • Added moisturizing agents such as argan oil and shea butter

Vivier 0.3% Retinol SR Complex is suitable for all skin types.

Medical Grade Retinol

While retinol is a valuable product to use in your daily skin care, it is important to choose the right formula for optimal impact. Medical grade retinol products are effective in providing intended results and cause less irritation than prescription grade retinol. You are also able to purchase medical-grade retinol over the counter.

How long does it take to see results?

After using retinol consistently for 3-6 weeks, you will be able to notice positive effects. After continued use for 3-6 months, you will see significant changes in your skin's appearance.
Can I stop using retinol once I am satisfied with my results?

While the effects of retinol are long-lasting, consistent use of the product will ensure your skin remains in a satisfactory state. You will continue to age and your skin will begin to show this if retinol use is halted. 

Which retinol product should I choose?

In general, we recommend using medical-grade retinol as they provide noticeable results without irritating the skin too much. Specifically, we recommend Vivier 0.3% Retinol SR Complex, which can be purchased through this link.
