What to Do to Keep Skin Looking Young

A good buddy of mine asked the other day, “What can I do right now, to keep looking young…and I don’t have time for a lot of face products!” I told him that I ask the same thing to myself, and I may have found the answer. For the past month I have been using AlphaRet Intensive from Skinbetter and couldn’t be happier! AlphaRet Intensive is a topical Retinoid, and is the latest breakthrough in skin care technology. This product is a once daily cream that is applied before bed, after a normal face wash. It has not irritated my skin (and I have fairly sensitive skin). What it has done is given my skin a smoother and cleaner appearance, reduced lines in my forehead and around my eyes, and improved pigmentation. So why is Alpharet different from the rest of the Vitamin A derivatives (i.e., tretinoin, Retin-A, retinoid) on the market?

Benefits of Alpharet

First, it is non-irritating. Alpharet uses ground-breaking technology to deliver retinoid and lactic acid to the skin. This double conjugated molecule has a “time-release” action, which helps decrease redness and peeling, while delivering full results. I have noticed no redness or irritation, and no peeling of my skin (even with daily use). My skin is even smoother after I shave, which was an unexpected bonus! Second, because of its non-irritative nature, AlphaRet can be used for patients with rosacea, eczema, and sensitive skin without this unwanted side effect. AlphaRet also contains a peptide blend and antioxidants, which stimulates and helps collagen growth to smooth and rejuvenated the skin.

How to Use Alpharet

As with any skin care regimen, be sure to apply a medical grade sunscreen every morning to block harmful UV-A and UV-B rays. And then, AlphaRet at night is an easy and powerful product to give you younger and healthier looking skin!
