BEST ANTI-AGING SKIN CARE THAT WORKS ON MATURE SKIN!
I’ve been taking care of my skin since I was a teen. When I reached my 40’s my skin was dramatically changing. It took many years for me to find the best anti-aging skin care that works on mature skin but I finally found it! One of the gold standards for anti-aging has been retin-a. I was using that and stopped and here’s why. Make sure to watch this VIDEO for more!
WHY I STOPPED RETIN-A
I started using retin-a because after a visit to my dermatologist she informed me that I had sebaceous hyperplasia which are benign growths of the sebaceous oil glands. Sebum gets blocked in these glands and they form hard bumps. Always have these checked because these could also be skin cancer.
Sebaceous hyperplasia can be caused from over oily skin, genetics, hormonal and sun exposure. There is no cure but using a retin-a can shrink these. I needed to explain this because it’s why I started using retin-a.
I started out with a low dose and wasn’t getting the results I wanted I decide to increase it and the peeling was non-stop. In the early stages of using this I was seeing a change in my skin. My lines were softer and my skin appeared tighter. I had heard that retin-a was the best anti-aging skin care that works on mature skin. So even though I wasn’t seeing big results from my sebaceous hyperplasia was was excited about this being anti-aging.
I wanted to keep using it until the never ending peeling discouraged me. No matter what I did I kept getting peeling skin, which wasn’t very attractive. I decided to stop using retin-a since my prescription ran out and decided to try a retinol.
TRETINOIN VS RETINOL
These both contain the same key ingredients. They’re both retnoids but tretinoin is a pure retinoic acid and retinol is converted into a retinoic acid. Bottom line is they both work the same but retinoin will work faster than a retinol.
TIME FOR A CHANGE
Because I was having so much peeling with retin-a (tretinloin) I decided to try a retinol. I’ve heard so much about Truth Treatments (use code ANNE20 for 20% off-this is an affiliate code)and after using the c-serum and having great results I decided to try the retinol 1%. I’ve been using this for months now and my skin has a beautiful glow. I look at photos from a year ago and I can see the difference!
I’m now incorporating 5% retinol to my routine which I’m only currently using once a week and my skin is looking better and better.
RETINOL IS A WIN
Retinol is a win for me! I cannot rave enough about Truth Treatments in how it’s changed my skin. It’s been a renewal of youth looking at before and after photos. Most people that meet me in person in daylight and not under any flattering filming lights are always floored when they find out my age. Most think I’m at least ten years younger than I am. I do have good genes but that doesn’t mean I shouldn’t take care of my skin. Watch this VIDEO for more on this topic (best anti aging skin care for mature skin)!
