What is Vitamin A

Vitamin A consists of retinols and retinoic acids.

What Does it Do?

Vitamin A promotes cell turnover, unclogs pores, get’s rid of acne, smoothes fine lines, and treats photoaging.


Will my skin become more sensitive to the sun? Yes, Vitamin A will increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun. Wearing sunscreen consistently is advised while using products with Vitamin A.

How long will it take for me to see a difference in my skin? Everyone’s skin is different, some people see nearly overnight changes in their skin, while others it may take 3-4 weeks to see any difference.

Do retinoids irritate the skin? Typically, if you have never applied retinoids on your face, you will likely experience redness and irritation. If you do experience irritation, reduce your usage until your skin adjusts.
