Why You Should Include Retinol In Your Skincare Routine

Retinol – a must have product in your skincare routine. This powerful, anti-aging treatment boosts collagen production and cell turnover, reduces the appearance of hyperpigmentation, softens fine lines and wrinkles, treats acne and improves skin texture. It’s your personal magic wand to treat a variety of skin concerns and works for all skin types.

A Little About Retinol

Retinol is a form of Retinoic Acid, which is a form of Vitamin C that goes through various forms of conversion in the skin. Retinol is the more common product used in skincare and it’s significantly more gentle than Retinoic Acid. However, it does take longer to show benefits. But when it does, it really works to improve your skin’s appearance.

If you’re looking for a high-quality Retinol, Dr. Lancer’s Advanced Retinol Treatment is a supercharged nighttime serum that contains 1.25% Retinol with Bakuchiol, a plant-derived retinol-mimicking compound to deliver younger-looking skin. Co-Retinol Technology, a powerful blend of Retinol, Bakuchiol and a Soy Complex, is the key to softening those fine lines and wrinkles, while improving the appearance of skin elasticity, texture and tone. Collagen and Prickly Pear Extract are also key ingredients as they minimize the look of redness and dryness while keeping the skin hydrated. If your goal is to have youthful skin, Advanced Retinol Treatment is sure to make a difference.


What Age Should You Start To Use Retinol?

An ideal time to start using Retinol would be when a patient is in their 20’s, but you can actually use it at any age since it has so many benefits. No matter your age, gender or skin type, Retinol is always started slowly and requires patience on your end. The product is to be used only at night and after polishing and cleansing. Retinol makes skin more sensitive to sunlight, so applying it at night is important.

How Often Should This Be Used In My Skincare Routine?

In terms of weekly applications, most patients start using Retinol once a week in the evening and then slowly increase use to twice weekly. You could start on a Monday night, then do Monday and Thursday night the next week and see how your skin responds. As skin gets used to the product, you can increase application to 3-4 times a week if your skin isn’t experiencing any signs of irritation. As for the amount, a small amount can go a long way. You can use up to 2 pumps on the face, neck and decollate, applying it with upward strokes.

With Advanced Retinol Treatment in your routine, your skin should not only appear more balanced and youthful, but healthier which is what we strive for.

Skincare in Your 60s: The Best Products for the Golden Years

Women in their 60s face a variety of skin challenges. According to the US National Library of Medicine, the right vitamins, diet, and sun protection play a big role in skin health and appearance. However, normal hormonal and physiological changes subdue sweat and oil gland functionality, slow the cell regeneration cycle, and thin the epidermis, creating wrinkles, a dull complexion, and a loss of elasticity. As we age, those changes—most commonly dryness and noticeable wrinkles—become pronounced.

Best Skincare Regimen for 50 Year Olds

Skincare for women over 50 can be challenging, especially if hormone fluctuations cause added stress. As you reach menopause, testosterone increases and estrogen decreases. You may experience a recurrence of acne, a dull or mottled complexion, and you might notice the appearance of dark spots from sun damage right alongside crow’s feet and other fine lines and wrinkles. This deterioration might feel frustratingly inevitable, but with a skincare regimen that uses the highest quality products, you can prevent and reverse many signs of aging.

Dr. Lancer’s Skincare Regimen for 40-Somethings

In your 40s, hormonal fluctuations can cause recurrent adult acne, your skin may appear dull or sallow, and fine lines and wrinkles may have made a visible appearance. Dr. Lancer explains, “Biologically speaking, 25 is the age when your body’s cell replacement system comes to a screeching halt, but it’s not till your 40s that it really starts to show.” With the right skincare regimen, however, you can work with your skin to maintain—or regain—a firm and glowing complexion. Skincare after 40 continues to be about protection and prevention, while also ensuring that your skin receives the rejuvenation and essential antioxidants it needs to look its healthiest.

Dr. Lancer’s Skincare Regimen for 30-Somethings

In your 30s, your skin might appear duller than it once did, and you may notice fine lines around your lips, forehead, or eyes. The cell cycle naturally slows in your late 20s, and the effects of that decline slowly begin to appear. Your skincare routine should be both preventative and active, treating existing problems and protecting against any new ones. While you may have already developed good skin maintenance habits in your 20s, and you are still young, your skin will become less efficient in your 30s. Now is the time to shift to a skincare routine that will stimulate your skin to continue cellular regeneration.
