is a question I get on a daily basis. As well as, "what's the difference between the All-Trans Retinol 2.0% and the All-Trans Retinol 2.0% with Non-Prescription Strength Tretinoin (aka Ret with Tret)?
The best retinol product for one person may not be the best retinol product for you. But first of all, lets discuss the difference between the two. All-Trans Retinol 2.0% and the All-Trans Retinol 2.0% with Non-Prescription Strength Tretinoin have the exact same ingredients in them. The one and only difference is that the with the All-Trans Retinol 2.0% with Non-Prescription Strength Tretinoin has TRETINOIN in it. Tretinoin is pure Vitamin A, also known as Retinoic Acid. Tretinoin is the active Vitamin A that's in prescription products such as Retin-A, Renova, Refissa, Retin-A Micro, etc. Prescription strength Tretinoin starts at 0.020% and goes up to 0.01%. Our non-prescription strength Tretinoin is 0.018%, so you can see how close it is to prescription strength.

Hello fellow skin care devotees!
I haven’t posted my personal daily skin care routine in ages, so it’s definitely time to do so. I’ve really shortened it up – I do switch it up now and then, but this is my current routine and has been for a while:
Morning:Step 1:Cleanse with the Microfiber Cleansing Cloth only.
I don’t use a cleanser in the morning, the microfiber cleanses so well, I don’t feel the need for an additional cleanser. I wash my hands, wet the microfiber in hot water, wring it out and press it against my entire face giving myself a mini facial steaming. Then I gently exfoliate my entire face and neck with it. I just swipe it across my eye area.
Ferulic Acid is a powerful antioxidant that helps to prevent wrinkles by boosting collagen, and works to prevent and reverse sun damage. I like to think of this ingredient as that silk scarf that plays well with our basic wardrobe selections and elevates any look.
Currently, Ferulic Acid is one of the most exciting ingredients in skincare. Scientific studies report that Ferulic Acid performs best when used together with Vitamins C and E as it helps to stabilize them and enhance their antioxidant properties. By stabilizing these vitamins, Ferulic acid causes them to become more than the sum of their individual parts.
Sebaceous Hypeplasia treatments: What topical products help?
Sebaceous Hyperplasia treatments vary and don't always work. They can be removed by laser, an electric needle, liquid nitrogen, even surgery; and there are more options that aren't quite as effective. However the removal may be temporary only, as these little crater type benign bumps are very difficult to get rid of completely; they can and will come back.
For a DIY treatment, several clients have had success with the GHK-Cu Copper Peptide Serum With EGF and the All-Trans Retinol with Non-Prescription Tretinoin. The treatment consists of using a
I want to discuss the proper way to use All-Trans Retinol with Non-Prescription Tretinoin (Ret with Tret) so you can get the most out of it. Complete step by step instructions are included with your order, but I want to elaborate a bit…..
Several clients have asked me why there needs to be a 20 minute wait period after cleansing to apply the Ret with Tret (All-Trans Retinol with Non-Prescription Tretinoin). The only reason is that it cuts down on any possible irritation. Tretinoin doesn’t like water very much. That’s why it needs to be kept away from mucous membranes as well. Our eyes, nose (paranasal creases) and mouth emit moisture and moisture + Tretinoin = irritation.
MSM: "Nature's Beauty Mineral” by Louise Manteuffel, Guest Writer and Esthetician
MSM is considered to be nature's beauty mineral for firm skin due to its ability to enhance collagen bundles and restore the foundation for healthy skin. MSM is well known as a building block for collagen and connective tissues; it can normalize collagen formation and radically improve skin health. We need MSM in our Skincare Toolbox because it is a powerful team player in the anti-aging skin care game.
The FDA has said this about MSM:
I know a lot of you have heard me say that taking a before picture of yourself, for yourself, before using our Anti-Aging skin care products is a good idea since results are cumulative. Then in two months, take another one, and in another two months, take a third one - on up to a year. You'll be amazed to see how your skin has improved; and they;re fun to compare.
I received the email below recently, and it explains exactly why taking selfies for yourself is really is worth it. Of course, I'd love to see them too! Please do read on…..
Hello you gorgeous thing you!
The Microfiber Cleansing Cloth is a powerful tool; that's putting it lightly. I want to chat about what makes it so powerful. I wonder if you love your Facial Microfiber Cleansing Cloth as much as I do. I've been using one for years now and can't imagine what I would do without it. Aside from being kinder to your skin than a leave-on exfoliating acid, you can count on smoother, blemish free, glowing skin.
The Microfiber cleansing cloth is an amazing work horses that do a lot more than just thoroughly remove makeup. Using one on a regular basis keeps pores from enlarging by keeping them unclogged. Pores increase in size when they get filled up with dead skin cells, makeup, sweat, soap residue, grime and pollution. Oily skin types typically have more of an issue with larger pores due to excess oil secretion that get stuck in their pores, clogging them; but large pores can be genetic and can also get larger with age. Oh the glory of aging... but... that's OKAY - microfiber to the rescue!
