“What You Want is Thick, Juicy Skin, Juicy is Young Skin!”
Remember a couple of posts ago we mentioned how the chemicals we put on our face sends it into overdrive causing it to age at a rapid rate and doing the opposite of what we want or what we are told?
Ok, here we go getting all serious about chemical ingredients but to be quite honest with you we really do care about you and your skin and we are always looking for high performing ingredients like the ones in Dr. Lucy that work naturally hard for you without the chemicals!
Here is some well documented information on these drugs and what they can do to your skin and how Retinoids, Retin-A, Renova, Tazorac and Retinols (retinols are over the counter while Retinoids are by prescription) are actually very toxic and quite honestly dangerous to the integrity of your skin and to you!
First Always Remember Here at Dr. Lucy Pure Natural Skincare We Are Against Retinoids and their Relatives and Here Are a Few Very Important Reasons Why:
For years, prescription retinoids for the face have been assumed to be the best anti-aging products by smoothing wrinkles, speed cell turnover, fade sunspots and build collagen. But now there are claims that they can also thin the skin and cause chronic inflammation (peeling, lobster-red faces), actually leading to premature aging.
“It doesn’t matter if it gives you 10% less of a wrinkle-that’s so microscopic, our eyes can’t distinguish it.” Says Dr. Michelle Yagoda New York City facial plastic surgeon. She goes on to say, retinoids are easy to prescribe, so patients are rarely offered an alternative. While most experts agree that retinoids do produce quick results, many claim they might not be worth it. “Sure, your discolorations and lines might be getting a little better,” says Simon Erani, lead researcher for the skincare company Somme Institute,” but you’re not noticing how your skin looks papery and thin.” Erani believes any inflammation (detected in his subsurface skin photos of people who’d been using retinoids for at least eight weeks) will damage skin in the long run. New York City aesthetician Susan Ciminelli says she can spot retinoid users right away: “Their skin looks brittle because it has lost its cushion.” She believes that retinoids strip the skin, while the path to a youthful glow involves adding natural moisture and emollients. “What you want is thick, juice skin.” She says, “Juicy is young skin.”
The Bottom Line:
Avoid anything that makes your skin irritated, red or flaky which includes retinoids or retinols and use natural, calming, potent and plumping skin care. The point is to soften not deepen those lines, after all.
