Skin Care Boosters | Retinol vs Revinage: Which Is Best For Your Skin?

As you age, your collagen production slows down. Retinol, when applied, works to stimulate collagen production in your skin. But for many people, incorporating retinol into their skincare routine is like finding the last piece of the puzzle. This much-discussed ingredient is one of the most powerful ingredients for skin care. Although it has some advantages, it does not work transparently for everyone.
What is retinol?

Retinol is a type of retinoid derived from vitamin A which is also a type of retinoid. The ingredient is known for its anti-aging properties.

Revining: The plant-based alternative to Retinol

Revinage is a plant extract that acts like synthetic retinoids. It is found in Bidens Pilosa, commonly known as blackjack. The effective plant extract regulates cell proliferation and differentiation for cell rejuvenation.
Now that you know the two ingredients, let’s take a look at the side effects of retinol and why you should avoid it and choose the safer alternative, ‘Revinage’.

Side effects of retinol:

The skin dries up or peels. Do not dry the skin.

Causes skin irritation or redness.

Soothes the skin.

Leads to acne breakouts. The production of sebum is reduced.
Weakens the skin barrier. Preserves the skin barrier.
Considered dangerous for pregnant women. Safe to use during pregnancy.

Melasma can be made worse.

Reduces the production of melanin.
Takes up to 6 weeks to show results. Displays results in 28 days.
Use only at night. Revinage can be used both day and night.

Retinol is not for everyone because it contains powerful antioxidants. Whereas, Revinage being an herbal extract, it is safe for everyone and for all skin types. However, one thing to keep in mind is that retinol works, but not everyone.
