My Skin After Switching From Retinol To OneSkin

Editors Note: It’s true – wrinkles are inevitable. As I’ve grown gently older, I’ve noticed fine lines appearing on my face, but I never really minded them. In search of healthier skin as I continue to age, I found OneSkin.

My Skin When I Tried Retinol:

I’ve always been one to embrace the beauty of aging – growing out my grays and opting out of botox. However, I was getting more concerned about the actual health of my skin – not merely aesthetics.

Some dermatologists rave about Retinol being the gold standard of aging skincare, so I figured there was no harm in giving it a try. As a topical form of vitamin A, I liked how Retinol is non-invasive. And if the professionals say it works, it should work for me, right? Wrong.

After only a few uses of Retinol from Skinceuticals, I had adverse side effects. My skin was constantly red and irritated and quite literally peeled off my face. I couldn’t go outside without my face getting sunburnt and further damaged. I’d read about these side effects and that this phase would eventually subside. But my skin didn’t feel healthy.

I found out pretty quickly that Retinol isn't the right match for my skin. No matter how rewarding dermatologists said the results were, no reward is worth incessant irritation. I knew there had to be another way to improve my reactive skin.

I looked beyond Skinceuticals’ Retinol for an alternative solution and discovered OneSkin.

A skin and health longevity company, OneSkin’s pioneering technologies are aimed at extending the human healthspan. The notion of a healthspan totally resonates with me. Their topical products are designed to slow the effects of skin aging to refresh and revitalize your skin. Unlike Retinol, OneSkin is a non-invasive and non-irritating topical skin care solution. It seemed like what I’d been looking for.

After my failed Retinol attempt, I explored the formula's science to ensure it wouldn’t harm my skin. OneSkin's OS-01 peptide has the power to reduce senescent (damaged) cells - the ones that actually promote accelerated aging and inflammation - by up to 50% in skin. Powered by the OS-01 peptide, OneSkin’s Topical Supplements help to increase epidermal thickness, repair past damage and will keep your skin healthy for years to come.

With that kind of scientific-backing, I had to give OneSkin a shot.

My Skin After I Switched To OneSkin:

OneSkin’s OS-01 FACE Topical Supplement is an ideal addition to my skincare regimen. I simply use it as a moisturizer after washing my face! Even with twice-daily applications, my skin’s never irritated by the formula, which is a welcomed change.

After my first 2 weeks using OneSkin’s OS-1 FACE Topical Supplement, I felt some results. To be honest, the aesthetic difference wasn’t too noticeable right away. But my skin was more hydrated and plumper than it had been in a long time.

By Week 6, there was a radical difference. My skin is thicker and firmer, with far fewer fine lines and wrinkles. My skin has discernable, newfound health. As I continue to use the product, my skin tone has evened out. These days, I’m confident and feel a glow from the inside out.

Each OS-01 FACE bottle I’ve used has lasted 2-3 months! And for $99 a bottle – with their subscription – the value is undeniable. Not to mention the results are skin-changing.

Takeaway:

Switching from Skinceuticals’ Retinol to OneSkin was a game-changer. As much as I wanted it to be and as painful as it was, Retinol isn’t for everyone. I wanted healthy skin I could feel – I found that with OneSkin.

If you want to improve your skin’s longevity without the ugly side effects, I highly recommend ordering OneSkin – you won’t regret it.
