Vitamin A – Why It’s Important for Anti-Aging
Vitamin A, also known as retinol, is absolutely essential for many functions within the body, from maintaining vision and bone health to keeping the immune and reproductive systems in working order. In addition to this, it is an extremely vital ingredient when it comes to skin care, and has been proven to help with over 100 different skin issues. OROGOLD takes a closer look at why vitamin A is important for anti-aging.
The Different Forms of Vitamin A
Vitamin A, retinol and retinoid – the terms can often be quite confusing. Although they are often used interchangeably, most forms of retinol are widely available in many skin care products, while retinoids usually require a prescription. When it comes to the benefits that they offer, all forms of vitamin A have similar effects, which is why they are so popular in anti-aging products.
Since vitamin A is an antioxidant, it is able to interrupt the damage that is being caused to cells by free radicals. This damage causes the skin to look, and act, much older than its years, making vitamin A essential when it comes to preventing the appearance of wrinkles and increasing the production of collagen. Vitamin A is also great at managing certain skin conditions, such as acne and eczema, while healing any discoloration that may have been caused by the sun. As great as all of that may be, the most valuable property of vitamin A is that it is a highly effective cell-communicating ingredient, which means that it can connect to skin cells and make them behave in the same way that younger, healthier cells would.
Choosing a Vitamin A Anti-Aging Product
When choosing vitamin A anti-aging products, OROGOLD recommends that you first identify your problem areas, so that you know exactly what you want to target. For a weekly vitamin A anti-aging treatment, take a look at the different OROGOLD facial masks, from the 24K Collagen and Seaweed Mask to the 24K Bio-Brightening Pigment Balancing Mask to the 24K Cryogenic Diamond Mask. The skin around the eyes, which is the most delicate and sensitive skin on your face, could benefit from daily applications of the 24K Intensive Eye Formula Cream, the 24K Dark Circle Eye Solution or the 24K Cryogenic Contour Eye Firming, all of which contain vitamin A. OROGOLD also has a great choice of both day and night moisturizers that contain vitamin A, as well as serums and creams. Vitamin A is just as important for men as it is for women, which is why OROGOLD also has a men’s collection that contains the vitamin, including the 24K Men’s Hydrating Moisturizer, the 24K Pre-Shave Facial Serum and the 24K Men’s Deep Pore Cleanser.
The potency of vitamin A that is contained in each product depends on the particular product. However, since vitamin A has been known to sometimes be too harsh for sensitive skin, those of you that suffer from sensitive skin should opt for a vitamin A product that has been designed specifically for your skin type, such as the OROGOLD 24K Sensitive Skin Hydrating Moisturizer. With so many great anti-aging benefits, if you don’t already have vitamin A incorporated into your skin care routine, it is time to do so immediately!
