Science of YOUTH

Retinol may be the se­cret weapon in every anti-age­ing ex­pert’s ar­se­nal. But the su­per­hero in­gre­di­ent has had a makeover, de­liv­er­ing im­pres­sive re­sults

Woman’s Day (Australia) - - Celebrity News -

Ask any beauty ed­i­tor or der­ma­tol­o­gist what their gold-stan­dard anti-age­ing se­cret is and the an­swer is kind of bor­ing. Be­cause it’s al­ways the same: retinol. But there’s a rea­son for that. This mag­i­cal lit­tle mol­e­cule is the gift that keeps on giv­ing. Dark spots and dis­coloura­tion? Fine lines and wrin­kles? Dull­ness and sag­gi­ness? You name it, it helps it. How? Retinol (a form of Vi­ta­min A) speeds up the skin’s cell re­newal process to keep it look­ing younger.

One of the lat­est stand­out stars to hit the mar­ket is Neu­tro­gena’s Rapid Wrin­kle Re­pair Re­gen­er­at­ing Cream. It’s su­per­charged with a whop­ping 25 per cent more retinol than their Re­pair Night Mois­tur­izer (the re­sults of which we were al­ready pretty happy with). The higher con­cen­tra­tion of Ac­cel­er­ated Retinol SA (Sus­tained Ac­tion) and the fact it pos­sesses the abil­ity to pen­e­trate the skin while also con­tin­u­ing to work through­out the day means that not only does it help sup­port col­la­gen, smooth wrin­kles and resur­face the skin to help with tex­ture, but the re­sults also re­veal them­selves in as lit­tle as a week. Even bet­ter, fac­tor in the Re­gen­er­at­ing Cream’s line-plump­ing in­tense mois­ture hit, and you’ll see skin that’s dewy and su­per-glowy too.

Trans­for­ma­tive stuff, but if you want to en­sure the Re­gen­er­at­ing Cream works to its full po­ten­tial, con­sider team­ing it with the rest of the Rapid Wrin­kle Re­pair range that in­cor­po­rates day and night lo­tions, a serum and a re­ju­ve­nat­ing eye cream. For­mu­lated specif­i­cally to com­ple­ment each other, they’re en­gi­neered with all the ex­tras: nour­ish­ing and skin-smooth­ing in­gre­di­ents and hy­drat­ing mois­turis­ers. So all you need to do is sit back, re­lax and watch your skin trans­form. And don’t for­get your stop­watch.
