But wait, what is Retinol?
Retinol is a vitamin A derivative known to play a key role in supporting cell growth and turnover. Belonging to a class of retinoids, retinol is gentler and friendlier to your skin. It speeds up the production of collagen (your secret ingredient to address those unwanted signs of ageing), reduces pore size, fights acne, and gives your firmer skin. When it comes to being an all-rounder, retinol is the standard. Below is a list of why you need to include this product in your routine STAT!
Advantages of Retinol
Yes, you read it right. Retinol is known to boost the production of collagen, which plays a crucial role in reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This helps you achieve youthful and radiant skin.
In your fight against acne, Retinol is the most powerful weapon you'll possess. This vitamin A derivative is a one-stop solution for acne and pimples. Retinol prevents the possibility of future breakouts by declogging pores and getting rid of dead skin cells. This mechanism inhibits the growth of pimples and acne. Because of this full-proof working, it leaves no space for acne to form.
Did you know that factors like stress, smoking, and pollution can make your skin look dull? Luckily, you no longer have to worry about this. Retinol initiates cell turnover, a process in which dead skin cells are continuously shed, producing new, healthier skin cells with a chance to surface. It also regulates the production of melanin, a substance responsible for your skin's pigmentation. This functional duo gives bright and glowy skin.
Get even-toned skin
With retinol in the picture (and your routine), you no longer have to worry about pigmentation on certain parts of your skin. Instead, it works by stimulating collagen production and accelerating cell turnover, which helps reduce wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and acne.
Prevents sun damage
We all tend to skip the sunscreen and think it's no big deal, but in reality, we're leaving our skin vulnerable to the sun's harmful rays. Retinol is perfect for you if your skin is showing signs of sun damage. It helps eliminate all the damaged skin cells and fades brown spots by speeding up cell turnover.
Still skeptical about using retinol? What if we tell you there's a retinol serum that's more soothing, gentle, and moisturizing to the skin? Your search for the perfect retinol ends here.
The retinol that suits every skin type
Foxtale's Vit-A-lity retinol night serum unlocks the secret to the ultimate all-in-1 solution for all your skin concerns. Here are a few reasons why it needs to be added to your skincare shelf!
1) Encapsulated retinol
If you're one of the many folks with oily skin, finding the right skincare products can feel like searching for a needle in a haystack. You want something that will keep your skin in check without clogging pores or making it feel too greasy. Foxtale's Retinol Serum is the holy grail of skincare. It contains 0.15% encapsulated retinol which is lightweight, absorbs quickly into the skin, and won't make your skin feel oily. Its efficacy in treating the signs of ageing is 2X faster than other retinol serums. It is also known to boost collagen production and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
2) Perfect for dry & sensitive skin
If you have dry skin, it is recommended to use low-strength retinol to prevent your skin from drying out. A wise decision would be to use a product containing a lesser concentration of retinol, such as Foxtale's retinol anti-ageing night serum. The unique thing about this serum is that it contains 0.15% encapsulated retinol- a process in which an active ingredient is trapped within a carrier agent so it can be released slowly to the targeted area. How does this help exactly? It can penetrate the deepest layers of the skin to deliver benefits without any side effects that ordinary retinol serums cause.
Having sensitive skin is an unending cycle of worrying about the ingredients in a product. You are more prone to redness and irritation when you use a product containing a higher percentage of retinol. But with Foxtale’s retinol serum, you no longer have to fear purging and irritation!
3) Palmitoyl glycine
While the name sounds intimidating, the function it performs is not. This ingredient reduces wrinkles to reveal smooth, firm, and radiant skin by improving skin oxygenation and building skin proteins.
4) Goodness of moisturizing agents
The serum is enriched with hydrating and moisturizing ingredients like betaine and allantoin, designed to pamper and nourish your skin. Say hello to bouncy and supple skin!
5) Kokum butter
The presence of kokum butter in the serum helps treat acne and other skin inflammatory conditions.
You no longer have to do the guesswork; retinol is the right fit for you. Its versatility makes it a must-have in any skincare routine, regardless of skin type. Not only does it combat acne, but it also bestows a youthful radiance upon your skin. Let retinol work its magic on your skin today!
1.My skin is extremely dry. Will using retinol dry it further?
No, Foxtale’s retinol will not dry out your skin. Here’s a tip- To minimize the risk of dryness and redness, use a product with a lower concentration of retinol, like Foxtale’s retinol anti ageing night serum. It contains 0.15% encapsulated retinol which does not cause any purging or dryness and delivers the best anti-ageing benefits.
2.Can I apply retinol directly to my skin?
No, applying retinol directly to the face can make it drier and turn it red. After cleansing your face with a gentle cleanser like the daily duet cleanser, you can layer it with Foxtale's ceramide moisturizer. This step is important to let your skin adjust to the retinol.
3.How should I introduce retinol to my skin if I’m a beginner?
If you’re a beginner, we recommend using a lower concentration of retinol to get your skin acclimatized to the product. You can introduce retinol to your skin by using the ‘sandwich method’ where you layer it between two layers of moisturizer. This minimizes the possibility of any irritation. Initially, you can use the serum twice or thrice a week and gradually increase the usage every alternate night.
