Sensitive skin

There are many sensitive skin conditions — acne, rosacea and contact dermatitis. 

The skin tends to become more sensitive with age as it loses the protective moisture and fat that keeps it from drying out.


Sensitive skin is skin that is more reactive than usual.  With sensitive skin, proper and gentle skin care is important, especially when choosing skin care products.


Also, the  skin around the eyes is much thinner than the skin on the rest of your face, and as you get older, the tissues and muscles supporting your eyes weaken and may start to sag, so proper and gentle skin care is very important. 


'Hypoallergenic' skin care products are not necessarily safer for sensitive skin. There are no government standards as to the use of the term 'hypoallergenic'. So it can mean whatever a particular company wants it to mean; and really is just a marketing word.


Retinaldehyde: Wonder Product

Retinoids produce significant changes in epidermal and dermal skin cells and tissues. Users not only see a real improvement with fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, roughness and elasticity.


The stronger the retinoid the more effective it becomes. However, effectiveness can have drawbacks, and side effects like redness, flaky skin, and irritation, even temporary, are often encountered when using Retinoids. Retinaldehyde is a compromise between effectiveness and mildness. 


Retinaldehyde is a retinoid with fantastic benefits for aging skin. Retinaldehyde can improve the feel of skin elasticity for firmer, plumper-looking skin with a reduced appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and roughness. It is also better tolerated than tretinoin, making it the best choice for those with sensitive or delicate skin.


Retinol has been used in cosmetic skin care products for more than 30 years to help diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is the mildest retinoid, a well-tolerated treatment, and users typically experience minimal skin redness and irritation. It is the best choice for younger or very sensitive skin that cannot tolerate a more potent retinoids.


The unique entrapped retinol delivery system in Obagi retinols gradually releases the ingredient for the desired effect on the skin.

Sun protection is the most important step to take in fighting skin aging, especially when using Retinoids


Kinetin

When researching the ingredient Kinetin, scientists discovered that this plant-based growth factor prevented plant leaves from drying out and withering.
