How the Retinal + Niacinamide Youth Serum Benefits Skin

03 Oct 2022

If you’re looking to achieve youthful-looking skin (and who isn’t?) then bright, smooth skin with a reduction in the look of fine lines and wrinkles is the real goal. It starts with finding the routine that works best and lays the foundation for you—and then there’s room to amp it up. Enter: the Retinal + Niacinamide Youth Serum, YTTP’s mindfully created formula that not only assists in combatting the visible signs of aging with regular application, but also promotes other sought-after skincare benefits.

“The formulation behind the Youth Serum is so spectacular and elegant; it really does give an excellent experience,” says Jacob Tomás del Rosario, Youth To The People’s Director of Field Sales + Education. “It doesn’t skimp on results, which is really beautiful.”

What You Can Expect from the Youth Serum

Retinals and retinoids are, according to del Rosario, “the gold standard of skincare.” But prescription-grade retinoids, specifically tretinoin (or all-trans-retinoic acid), weren’t always meant to turn back the clock on aging. In fact, tretinoin was originally used in formulations to assist breakout-prone skin. As older patients started using it to treat acne, they noted a general improvement in the quality of their skin, which led to studies showing tretinoin’s other unintended (but welcomed) benefits, like improving the look of fine lines, revealing more even skin tone, and boosting skin smoothness. Like tretinoin, retinaldehyde is a retinoid and is an ingredient that is known for helping improve the look of fine lines and wrinkles but is available without a prescription.

Likewise, the Retinal + Niacinamide Youth Serum has many benefits, including smoothing texture, revealing brighter-looking skin, and decreasing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The Retinal + Niacinamide Youth Serum contains 0.15% retinaldehyde. Unlike retinol, retinaldehyde or retinal requires only one step to be converted to retinoic acid.

Why Choose the Retinal + Niacinamide Youth Serum?

Despite its formulation with retinaldehyde, which has secured the title of “the closest dose to an Rx,” the Retinal + Niacinamide Youth Serum keeps all skin types top of mind.

“The cool thing about Youth To The People is that we’re conscious about percentages of our ingredients,” says del Rosario, sharing that “the thoughtful formula” boasts 0.15% retinaldehyde—chosen by our chemists for its potent level of actives while still being gentle on your skin.

“The Youth Serum is impressive even beyond the retinaldehyde,” says del Rosario, sharing that the Youth Serum also includes ceramides, 5% niacinamide, ashwagandha extract, and an adaptogenic mushroom extracts complex, a great mix to help address visible signs of aging.

Together in the Youth Serum, these ingredients work their magic to ensure a well-rounded formula to elevate your skincare routine and help you achieve a smoother, more radiant complexion.
