Retinol Tolerance: What You Need to Know Retinoids are found in the skincare routines of many, as these are the second-best methods for preventing aging, right after sunscreen. Comprising vitamin A and its derivatives, retinoids work by binding to nuclear receptors and modulating the expression of genes that regulate cell differentiation and proliferation. This causes normalisation of cell keratinisation, which is the process of the outermost cells of the epidermis being replaced by keratin. Tretinoin is a natural retinoid available by prescription, and tazarotene and adapalene are synthetic retinoids. There are also many over the counter products made with retinol and retinyl esters, such as the Zo product line, that are easy to incorporate into a routine for people seeking skin rejuvenation and a youthful complexion.

After losing weight, many people who previously had smooth, wrinkle-free skin, experience sagging and a loss of elasticity, which makes skin look older or deflated. When this happens, you can be left feeling unhappy about ever having lost weight at all. Thankfully, dermal fillers can help regain the skin’s smoothness and elasticity following weight loss. What Effect Does Weight Loss Have on Skin and How Can Dermal Fillers Help?
