People always seem to look better when they smile. A smile can light up a room, turn someone’s frown upside down, and make hearts melt. I heard once that it requires more muscles to frown than it does to smile. But, like all things, for every action, there is a reaction and smiles are no exception. Smiles, although they kind of just make you feel good, can result in lines around the mouth. Much like any other expression that is repeated over and over again, smiles will eventually leave etchings on the face. The Philosophy Help Me Retinol Night Treatment helps to treat fine lines around the mouth and face. The product offers several other benefits that include smoother skin and a reduction in the appearance of skin discoloration. Retinol is a form of Vitamin A that is not as strong as the pure version. Vitamin A offers great benefits for the skin. Retinol communicates with the skin cells and encourages them to respond like brand new ones. Retinol functions as an antioxidant, fighting free-radical damage, and it has been shown to be effective in reducing lines and wrinkles.
I have been using the Philosophy Help Me Retinol Night Treatment for just about a month and have seen some really great results. So far it has cleared up some discoloration from breakouts and my skin looks more even then it has in the past. Retinol is very powerful, but this product is not harsh on my combination skin nor does it have a scent.
After cleansing each night, I apply the Retinol Night Treatment and follow up with African Shea Butter for a moisturizer.
