Retinol and powerhouse peptides are effective anti-ageing ingredients. Here’s how they work and which product we’re using to see the benefits


Are fine lines and wrinkles getting you down?

Ageing is a fact of life – there’s no getting around that – but you can slow down the visible signs of it. You don’t need multiple lotions or potions; rather, specific tailored-to-your-needs ingredients. In this case, retinol and peptides, both of which are combined in the new AGELESS Overnight Retinol Powerbalm by SKINICIAN.

Not only is the Powerbalm clinically proven to dramatically reverse the signs of ageing, but the ‘before and after’ photos truly speak for themselves.

What is retinol?

Our skin goes through cycles. Old skin cells shed, while new ones come to the surface. But, when we reach our mid-thirties, this renewal process slows down a lot. This can lead to our faces looking dull, tired and old.

Retinol, which is a form of Vitamin A, absorbs deep into the lower layers of skin. It encourages healthy skin cell renewal; in other words, it helps your skin rejuvenate at a healthy rate. As a result, skin feels firmer and tighter, while skin tone and clarity are improved.

What’s more, retinol stimulates the production of collagen, elastin and fibronectin – all of which leave your skin feeling firm, plump and even, with reduced visibility of wrinkles.

SKINICIAN AGELESS Overnight Retinol Powerbalm

SKINICIAN has combined active retinol with three powerhouse peptides (namely Dermapep™, Tetrapeptied and Tripeptide), to form its new AGELESS Overnight Retinol Powerbalm.

The product, which is fortified with these clinically proven ingredients, targets the signs of ageing; dramatically reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, boosting collagen production and tightening the skin.

And the best part? It’s completely vegan and cruelty-free.

How to use

Use the Powerbalm each night after thoroughly cleansing and toning. Apply it in circular movements to the face and neck (avoiding the delicate eye area), then follow with yourSKINICIAN night-time moisturiser.

Experts recommend introducing it into your daily skincare routine gradually; every other day to start, and then once a day.

It’s important to note that, due to the active nature of retinol, it’s best not to use it for at least five days prior to sun exposure, waxing or advanced exfoliating/peeling treatments.
