This month we are highlighting one of our favorite products, SkinBetter AlphaRet. This product has won InStyles Best Beauty Buys for 2018 and Allures 2017 breakthrough product of the year. There are a couple powerhouses in the anti-aging market. AHA’s and Retinoids. AHA’s or alpha hydroxy acids are typically some forms of glycolic and lactic acids. These aid in lightening, brightening, and repairing fine line and wrinkles. Retinoids, which are derivatives of Vitamin A, help unclog pores, boost collagen, speed cell turnover. The result is a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. You may have heard the terms Retinol/ retinoid and be thinking what’s the difference? Over the counter products typically contain Retinols, which are lower strength and need to be converted to Retinoids before they can be used by your skin. During that conversion process, the efficacy of the retinoids are diminished.
Alpharet is a unique combination of alpha hydroxy acid and a medical grade retinoid that will leave your skin rejuvenated with little to no irritation. This is a first of a kind product that includes both these key ingredients. If you are not using a retinoid, this should be a must in your nighttime skin care routine. Remember, after about the age of 18 we lose approx. 1% of collagen production each year. The number one way combat this, is to force your skin into cellular renewal. AlphaRet is the best option available as it combines these two gold standard ingredients. It’s available in two concentrations, AlphaRet Overnight Cream and AlphaRet Intensive Overnight Cream, which contains a higher level of glycolic acid to enhance re-texturization.
How / When to Apply
This product is designed to be applied at night. This is because UV rays will breakdown the efficacy of the retinoid. To apply, dispense two full pumps to fingertips. Dot forehead, cheeks and chin. Spread from the center and massage until the product is absorbed. You can apply remaining product to the neck.
At the time of this writing, AlphaRet is priced at $110 (same for the standard or intense), which is an amazing price point considering the combinations of these key ingredients. I know you will love the results of this product as much as I do.
