Benefits of Vitamin A

by | Apr 1, 2016 | Healthy Eating

Are you aware of all the forms of Vitamin A?

There are 3 prescription strength retinoids on the market today:

Tretinoin –  Retin-A, Atralin, Avita, Retin-A Micro and Renova

Tazarotene Avage and Tazorac

Adapelene –  Differin

Some of you have probably used one or two of the above. Maybe you used it for anti-aging reasons, maybe you used it for clearing acne. Most of these forms of vitamin A can be irritating to the skin causing redness, flakiness and irritation.

Osmosis uses Retinaldehyde. Retinaldehyde is a natural form of vitamin A derived from beta carotene which is converted and used to boost our immune system and provide healthy skin cells. Equivalent in strength to prescription Retin-A, Retinaldehyde is less irritating and non-inflammatory. Osmosis is the only skincare line to formulate a stabilized liposomal delivered form of Retinaldehyde, so it can reach beyond the surface to deliver results. I always recommend introducing the vitamin A serum slowly and increasing the amount and frequency as your skin adjusts. There’s no rush in using “more”; let the skin acclimate and you will have beautiful results.

You might ask, “What sort of benefits does Retinaldehyde provide?” Glad you asked!

  • Calm inflammation
  • Repair the skin barrier
  • Rebuild the dermis
  • Remodel the skin
  • New collagen/elastin
  • Increase nutrition
  • Increase immune repair
  • Clear acne
  • Normalize oil production
  • Shrink pores
  • Remodel scarring
  • Antibacterial

If you have concerns about any of the above, then it might be time to think about adding a vitamin A serum to your daily regimen.
