Why YOU Should Use Retinol

Retinol most simply is Vitamin A. It is most commonly known for anti-aging properties, specifically anti-wrinkle and skin brightening. It can treat and prevent everything from dark spots and sun spots to the most stubborn acne and eczema.

How does this help? "Namely, retinoic acid works to increase cell turnover, stimulate collagen and elastin production, fade hyperpigmentation, and help skin stays hydrated and glowing without irritation." (said Amy Wiggin, see the full article )

For great skin, your client will reap the benefits, with younger and healthier skin.

Take a look at these options
