VITAMIN A. Otherwise none as retinoids, vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin that is not present in the body. It is important not only to general health systems, but also for the skin. You will find it present in these foods: Liver, oils, egg yolk, milk and various vegetables. Vitamin A should be applied topically in order to perform its essential purposes. The sun depletes the skin of vitamin A, thus why people who tan age faster than those who don’t. Good skin care products will contain vitamin A in their formulas due to its significance in preventing and healing sun damage. Vitamin A will prevent, restore, normalize and help repair damaged skin. You will find it listed on your labels as: retinyl palmitate, retinyl acetate and retinol, along with the more traditional perscription form, retinoic acid. When using vitamin A enhanced skin care products you must always remember to apply sunscreen.
Retinol is an antioxidant, which means it helps to neutralize substances call free radicals. Free radicals destroy healthy skin cells. By neutralizing free radicals, retinols calms the skin, decreasing stress factors that may damage the skin .
In Allure Magazine’s book, Confessions of a Beauty Editor, the author asserts that special creams for the eyes are unnecessary: skin around the eyes “does not require its own product. Regular moisturizer works just fine.” I couldn’t disagree more. Eye area skin has important characteristics and as we get older (than the average 20-something magazine editor) they become more pronounced and demand specialized treatment. In fact, I would go so far as to say that a good eye cream is the best investment you can make.

Technological Differences Of Home Microdermabrasion VS Clinical
A professional microdermabrasion treatment utilizes advanced microderm machines that, in effect, “polish” the skin. By emitting a pressurized stream of abrasive crystal particles onto treated areas, these machines remove dead skin cells, improve the look of acne, fine lines, and skin imperfections, and smooth out the texture and tone of treated skin. Professional microdermabrasion can use aluminum oxide crystals (the most common type), sodium chloride or magnesium crystals, or crystal-free, diamond-tipped applicators during treatment. Aluminum oxide microdermabrasion is the most popular choice because it’s effective but not too expensive, and because its bacteria-killing properties have even been shown to prevent acne from forming. Patients should always consult with a certified clinical esthetician prior to microdermabrasion treatments to learn which form of microderm the clinic uses, and the procedural risks and benefits that are involved.
At-home microdermabrasion kits, although designed to treat the same skin problems as professional microderm, and very safe to use, their inferior technology can’t produce the same level of results. Even with at-home systems that use crystal or diamond particles, the particles are often mixed with a face cream that’s applied by hand, or they’re rubbed on with a scrubbing applicator. These systems will improve the look and feel of skin slightly, but they aren’t powerful enough to benefit skin more than your standard exfoliation scrub can.
So, when choosing between professional and at-home microdermabrasion, you may want to ask yourself another question: Do I want to sacrifice quality for convenience? Because, when it comes to quality skin care results, especially for older patients with advanced wrinkles and skin damage, at-home methods just aren’t going to “scrub” it!
