In breaking skincare news, Neutrogena, the loved skincare brand, recently launched its Retinol Boost range of products in South Africa, much to the delight of consumers seeking an effective and innovative anti-age face care line. Developed with dermatologists, the impressive formula combines pure retinol, myrthus leaf extract, and hyaluronic acid to effectively target visible signs of ageing for healthier-looking skin.
The launch of the range in South Africa aims to educate more South Africans on the benefits of retinol products, which can be used in two ways:
A. Preventative: preserve the skin and prevent ageing
B. Correction: soften wrinkles, correct uneven skin tone, improve firmness and radiance
TOP FORMULA: DERMATOLOGISTS USE IT THEMSELVES
This patented, multi-benefit formula fights various signs of ageing and is effective on so much more than wrinkles alone. The combination of quality ingredients is the reason why this range is the number one over-the-counter retinol brand, used by dermatologists in the United States.
Pure retinol, a form of vitamin A, is a highly effective ingredient scientifically proven to accelerate collagen production and stimulate cell renewal at the skin’s surface to fight fine lines, dull skin, wrinkles, and pigmentation. Myrthus leaf extract, known for its skin regenerating properties, works in synergy with retinol by significantly boosting its efficacy to be five times faster than retinol on its own, as proven by scientists. The formula also contains pure, long-bedded hyaluronic acid which helps to hydrate and plump the skin.
STARTING YOUR RETINOL JOURNEY
Neutrogena’s Skin Health Lab dermatologists recommend introducing retinol gradually as your skin needs time to adjust to this ingredient. It’s recommended that one starts with two to three uses per week, working up towards daily use over time.
As retinol is a powerful active, you may experience initial redness, a tingling sensation, or flaking which are normal indications that the formula is working and will soon fade. When using retinol in your skincare routine, it is recommended to always use sunscreen.
|Level 1: Beginners should start with the Retinol Boost Day and/Night cream to kickstart their retinol journey.
Level 2: After four to six weeks, add the Retinol Boost Serum or Eye cream to your basic routine for an extra boost. The lightweight silky Serum delivers pure retinol within the skin’s surface to effectively fight signs of aging. The Eye cream has been clinically proven to nourish and smooth the skin, fade the look of fine lines and stubborn crow’s feet as well as brighten and even out the under-eye area.
