Retinol yes or no?


Many ask me about retinol, if it is good or bad, if you have to use it or not, many fear the unwanted effects that synthetic retinol can cause.

To answer your questions, I will first explain what retinol is and what it can do for your skin.

Starting with the certainty that retinol is one of the best anti-aging active ingredients known.

Retinol is synthesized from Vitamin A , it helps neutralize free radicals, stimulates the synthesis of collagen and elastin in the skin, improving its firmness and elasticity, by stimulating collagen production, it visibly improves wrinkles, reducing their depth and amount. In addition to this effect, retinol exerts an exfoliating effect, eliminating dead cells, thus favoring the appearance of new cells, improving the appearance and texture of the skin, it also helps to reduce the size of the pores, improving oily skin and/or with acne.

Now you will tell me, then what is the but?

The adverse effects of the use of retinol are several, among them is excessive dryness of the skin, peeling, redness, irritation, itching, allergy to the component, sensitivity to the sun, in most cases these effects disappear after several days of application in other cases it's just not for your skin.

I always advise before using cosmetics with retinol to consult a professional such as your pharmacist or dermatologist, take into account your skin and its degree of sensitivity.

The question that many of you have asked me is there an alternative?

The answer is yes

Natural cosmetics have advanced by leaps and bounds, and today we can find cosmetics with ingredients that will provide us with the same beneficial effects as the retina without providing the adverse effects.

This means that you can use it safely even with sensitive skin, any time of the year and even during the day.

Now comes the improvement part where I am going to talk about the cosmetics that you can find in Biovardi and that contain Bio retinol.

My favorites are these 4:

- Le Pure True Revelation:

Formulated with Retinol of vegetable origin, specifically from beta-carotene, it helps to improve the functioning of the skin's melanocytes, improving the tone and pigmentation of the skin as well as preventing premature skin aging.


The cream that has become a top seller for its results, formulated with Bakuchiol, the analogue of synthetic retinol, acts on the same receptors as synthetic retinol, offering the same results without causing unwanted effects.

- Bio-Retinol + C Booster

Contains the famous Bakuchiol , this serum provides impressive results without causing any skin irritation.

-Bio-Retinol Gold Mask

Wearing the color gold was never so beneficial for our skin until this wonderful facial mask came into our lives. It not only illuminates the skin but also hydrates it and improves texture and wrinkles. a delight for your skin.

In short, Retinol yes, but not at any price, and if we have more skin-friendly alternatives, there is no excuse not to use them.
