Breaking news: There’s a new Youth To The People player in town! And while every fresh product launch is beyond exciting, this one is off the charts due to the marriage of a very special key ingredient with a glow-boosting array of equally beneficial and supportive ones. Yes, the Retinal + Niacinamide Youth Serum has arrived, and it’s the icing on the skincare cake you didn’t know you needed yet. (Or maybe you did—we see those IG comments!)
Formulated with retinaldehyde (the most potent non-prescription retinoid on the market), skin-toning and pore-refining niacinamide, antioxidant-rich adaptogens, replenishing ceramides, moisture-attracting hyaluronic acid, squalane…Oh! And ultra lightweight vitamin E, it’s the multi-effect serum that stands between you and your best skin yet.
Don’t believe us? Read on and find out why you’ll love the Retinal + Niacinamide Youth Serum.
You’ll love the Youth Serum if…..You’re looking to level up your routine.
Retinaldehyde is pretty amazing stuff. For one, it promotes cell turnover to remove dead skin to make space for new, healthy looking and feeling skin, which means you’ll see benefits quickly from the serum itself (hello, visibly smoother, firmer, more even toned skin). But, it also acts as the ultimate hype man, amplifying the effects of every other product in your routine. Friendly with all skin types, the only product you don’t want to mix it with is your exfoliator. In that instance, alternate nights between the two, allowing space for a break a couple of nights a week.
You’ll love the Youth Serum if…You’ve tried it all and are looking for the next best thing.
Skincare buffs will flock to try retinaldehyde (or retinal—with an A) because it’s clinically tested to work. Not only that, but it’s less irritating than using a prescription and more effective than using retinol. In terms of ingredients, it’s really the cutting-edge of science–and that’s pretty exciting for a number of reasons. Bypassing the typical unnecessary side-effects, YTTP’s pro-grade retinal delivers a dose of 0.15% stabilized retinaldehyde, along with 5% niacinamide to help calm the skin while the retinal gets to work. This means all of the results and none of the downtime.
You’ll love the Youth Serum if…You find prescription retinoids too harsh.
Perhaps you’ve tried an Rx retinoids to help tackle acne and blemishes, or employed one as a means to reduce scarring but found the side-effects to be too unpleasant to get to the end of the tube. Sound familiar? Give the Youth Serum a try. Because retinal is less potent than pure retinoic acid (aka a prescription reinoid), it’s also gentler, which means results without the same level of irritation, extreme dryness, flaking, and peeling.
You’ll love the Youth Serum if…You love dual-purpose products with innovative ingredients.
Sure, retinal is the star ingredient here, but what makes the Youth Serum particularly effective is how its other ingredients make it work smarter—alleviating any potential irritation and diminishing the lengthy acclimation period that are part and parcel of using other retinoids. In the Youth Serum, niacinamide works to strengthen and reinforce the skin’s natural barrier, while adaptogenic mushrooms and ashwagandha help to mitigate the effects of stress and irritation. And that’s not all: Ceramides, hyaluronic, squalane, and vitamin E neutralize dryness, drawing and locking in moisture for velvety-soft, smooth skin. You’ll see a difference in improved radiance overnight, but with continued use the results can be transformative. Think: Decreased appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, visibly improved dark spots and hyperpigmentation, along with minimized pore size. Just start one night per week to begin, increasing over time up to every other night—and always apply an SPF in the morning.
