The weather change is
certainly underway, the most common phrase at the moment is "it’s so cold outside”, of course, for numerous reasons, this can have a negative effect on your skin, exacerbating conditions like acne, rosacea, eczema and psoriasis, but what can you be doing extra to help with your skin?
Dermatologists swear by
Retinol and research shows that it can tackle a ton of skin care concerns,
including acne as well as wrinkles and rough, or discoloured skin. Second, only
to SPF, Retinol is recommended for just about everyone, even those with
sensitive skin and for an excellent reason.
If you suffer from moderate to severe acne and over-the-counter
medications and washes have had little or no effect, then you may want to try Retinol as an alternative treatment as it influences cell
turnover and can be of benefit in normalising increased
cell turnover as seen in acne. However, while Retinol for acne has been proven
effective in treating certain types of acne, for those who suffer from
blackheads, whiteheads or occasional pimples should not consider Retinol for
acne because these forms of mild acne can be better treated with ingredients
such as salicylic acid.
It is a well-known feature of acne development that skin cell
production increases and these cells die quicker resulting in more skin surface
debris which can increase the risk of hair follicle ducts becoming blocked,
leading to blackheads and spots. Retinol helps normalise
cell production and reduces the risk of blockages.
Take our Synchrovit® which contains encapsulated forms of
Vitamin A (Retinol) and Vitamin E (Tocopherol), which has potent antioxidant
properties to mop up free radicals
generated by stress and 'life'.
Synchrovit® also contains Acetyl
Glucosamine, Glucuronic Acid and
Saccharide Isomerate, which improves skin tone and increases the skin's ability
to hold water and promote the biosynthesis of Hyaluronic acid.
Synchronised anti-wrinkle –
anti-oxidant effect through the simultaneous action of Retinol (Vitamin A) and
Tocopherol (Vitamin E) which inhibits the formation of "free radicals” and
stimulate cellular renewal, leaving the skin younger looking and brighter.
Synchrovit® promotes tone and turgidity on the skin of the face and neck,
stimulating the biosynthesis of hyaluronic acid.

Synchrovit® A/E should be used afterAknicare® Lotion and before Aknicare® Cream.
Why is SkinMed’s Retinol Cream
As we encapsulate the Retinol before we add it to our high technology creams, and we do this for a number of reasons:
- It has little surface activity and so
it doesn't irritate like some
other Retinol creams. So it is released sequentially as it goes
deeper and deeper into the skin - delivering a prolonged long lasting effect.
- The active ingredients contained in
the product provide a synergistic
decrease invisible acne as the
Retinol helps the skin shed dead and dying cells faster so they don’t
contribute to clogged pores. This can also prevent new breakouts from forming,
especially if you are prone to cystic acne.
