Retinol 2.5% Cream by Uptown Cosmeceuticals



Vitamin A or Retinol as it's most commonly known is a great anti-aging skincare product to have in your arsenal.  What does it do?  It basically tells skin cells to act like younger and healthier skin cells, which is why it works so well.  It almost literally helps "turn back time" on aging and damaged skin.
For heavily damaged skin you can have your doctor prescribe a topical cream like Retin A that is a Retinoid with a much higher dose than it's over the counter cousins.  However, you don't need a prescribed Retinoid to get really great results.
This Retinol 2.5% Cream by Uptown Cosmeceuticals is a great example of a skincare product that can give you results almost as good as those prescription brands.  It just might take a little longer, which is some cases might be better.  Retinol at a prescribed dose can actually leave skin red and irritated.  Using Retinol at a dose of 2.5% means it will gently help fade discolorations from sun damage, reduce fine lines and wrinkles and it can even reduce the size of pores that have enlarged due to clogging or sun damage.  Plus, it can even help increase collagen production!
If you find that you have sensitive skin do a test patch to make sure that you are not overly sensitive to the Retinol.  Once you know you are good to go start adding the Retinol 2.5% Cream by Uptown Cosmeceuticals to your nightly skincare routine.  I recommend using on your face, neck and decollete.  Just make sure to wear sunscreen during the day while using ANY Retinol product.  You don't want to undo all the hard work that the Retinol!
This worked really well on some Melasma spots that I have and of course I always use Retinol to help keep my fine lines and wrinkles at bay!
