The Truth About Vitamin A For The Skin

You have unduly heard about the benefits that creams containing various forms of vitamin A have on the skin, but do these formulas work as well as they are said to? Tretinoin, Retinoic acid, Retinol, Retinyl Actate, and Retinyl Palmitate have all been tested and proven to reduce fine lines and wrinkles to a degree, but most of the anti aging products containing these substances are not really worth trying.

It said that these substances were effective in firming and smoothing the skin, because they have the proven ability to stimulate the production of collagen. Of course, this made them an almost instant hit among those serious about reducing their wrinkles, and sales began to take off. In the beginning there were some unforeseen (by consumers) drawbacks to using such products as anti aging aids.

Tretinoin was the earliest form of vitamin A to be available for use on aging skin, and its primary function was the treatment of acne and other skin disorders. Tretinoin based skin care products were available only by prescription, because of the high risk of often severe skin irritation that resulted from its use. The negatives often outweighed the positives for some seeking youngger looking skin.

Over the years, advanced delivery systems have been introduced which significantly reduced your risk of experiencing severely irritated skin. What these advanced delivery systems did was allow higher levels of Retinol to remain fresh, and allowed the primary compounds to be delivered more slowly into the skin. It also mean these potential irritants only became active even contact with the skin.

You may still suffer mild irritation from the prescription forms of vitamin A, but at least they will still give you some results so far as eliminating some of your fine lines. Over the counter Retinol formulas are generally mild enough that they will not irritate your skin. Unfortunately, this is due to the fact that the primary active collagen creating ingredient is available in only minute doses.

You will often find whatever form of Retinol an anti aging formula contains far down on the list of ingredients. This is an indicator that there is hardly any of this key substitution in your chosen product, and so you should not expect much in the way of results at all. I am going to tell you about something that works far more effectively at firming and smoothing the skin than these Retinol products do.

Instead of vitamin A based formulas, you should be using products that combine Nano-Lipobelle H-EQ10, Xtend TK, Phytessence Wakame kelp extract, and grape seed oil. Nano-Lipobelle and Xtend TK are both powerful collagen and elastin stimulators. Phytessence Wakame and grape seed oil have been proven to deter the harmful enzyme activity which causes collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid loss through decomposition.

Anti aging products containing vitamin A may be more well known to the public, but they do not hold a candle to this new formula in producing and preserving firming skin tissues and polymer. Give this product a try, and you will see that it is the most effective anti aging formula out there.
