Everything You Need To Know About Retinol

As we age, we research top-rated anti-aging creams and skincare treatments to reduce and prevent the visible signs of aging. With significant advances made in the anti-aging skincare industry, we can provide you with highly effective top skincare products that deliver desired improvements. The most efficacious ingredient for skin restoration in the market today is retinol.

What is retinol?

Retinol, also known as vitamin A, is a powerful skin rejuvenator. Long used by dermatologists to treat acne, skin care practitioners soon realized that it also reduced fine lines and wrinkles. Retinol molecules have the ability to penetrate the outer layers of the skin and work deep into the layers of collagen and elastin to stimulate skin restoration. Retinol remains the gold standard for anti-aging skin care.

Cell-Tight Contains Next Generation Retinol

There are many variations of retinol in the market in the form of top skincare products. They regenerate skin cells and stimulate collagen production revealing younger, new skin. In the past, retinol has had a common side effect of irritating the skin. That’s why YNS Cosmeceutical Skincare chose the next generation retinol. Next generation retinol encapsulates retinol molecules in nanometer-sized cups called cyclodextrins, which means “a ring of dextrin sugar.” Retinol molecules are hosted securely within the tiny sugar cups until they are released selectively upon contact with skin moisture. This slow release is so gentle that Cell-Tight may be used twice a day, even under the eyes, without visible peeling or irritation.

Which Retinol Percentage Is Right For Me?

Cell-Tight is available in two formulations of retinol, specific to your skin type. Cell-Tight is one of our most popular products. We offer two levels of this peptide retinol serum with varying retinol percentages.

Our customers frequently ask us which one is better or if one is more effective than the other. Selecting the level of Cell-Tight for you is largely a question of skin type.

  • Level 1: 0.15 Percent – For dry or sensitive skin.
    • We recommend that users with dry/sensitive skin use Level 1 until they have established tolerance. Level 1 contains 0.15 percent retinol.
  • Level 2: 0.2 Percent – For normal to oily skin.
    • We recommend that users with normal to oily skin use Level 2, which contains 0.2 percent retinol.

One exception: if you live in a colder, dryer climate, we recommend starting with 0.15 percent Level 1 regardless of skin type. If you still have questions about which retinol percent to choose, please consult with us!

What Can I Expect From Regular Use of Retinol?

With regular use of retinol in a top skincare product, you should note a visible decrease in signs commonly associated with skin aging:

  • Wrinkles
  • Dark spots
  • Loss of elasticity and plumpness
  • Dullness
  • Acne

Regular use of a high-quality retinol such as in Cell-Tight also prevents the advance of premature skin aging. To be sure to get desired results, it is essential to choose a top skincare product line, such as the YNS Power Trio. The Power Trio consists of the peptide retinol serum Cell-Tight, the peptide cream complex Radiance, and Infusion O2, a polypeptide cream. The Power Trio is manufactured to the highest industry standards, using the most effective ingredients in the market today. While each product targets specific needs of your facial skin, together they achieve optimal reversal to younger-looking, healthier skin.

Although Cell-Tight is very gentle and therefore tolerated well, there are exceptions to consider:

  • Pregnant and lactating women should not use products containing retinol.
  • Colder temperatures, lower humidity, and dry indoor air all conspire to make your skin dry, itchy, and sensitive. To adjust your program, stop Cell-Tight for one to two days, and apply Infusion O2 and Radiance in the morning and evening. After one to two days, continue program or adjust usage of Cell-Tight to evening-only application.
  • Avoid facial hair removal by waxing.

Our next-generation retinol is encapsulated for controlled release upon contact with your skin — meaning you can apply it twice a day without visible skin peeling. There is no difference in the efficacy of Level 1 or Level 2 — it simply comes down to your skin type. Order Cell-Tight and other top skincare products from YNS Cosmeceutical Skincare today!
