Valentia Night Revive Retinol Serum

I have used the Valentia Night Revive Retinol Serum as part of my daily skin care regimen. I apply this serum after I have cleansed my face just before applying my nighttime moisturizer. I have already started seeing the transformation in my skin since using this retinol serum. It helps to fight wrinkles and provides hydration, for visibly smoother, rejuvenated skin.

I’m always looking for products that are non-evasive and help to keep my skin looking younger and healthier. This product definitely delivered!

 

About Valentia Skin Care

The Roman Goddess of healing, Valentia, relied on nature’s gifts to heal the citizens of Umbria. Whether matriarchs seeking to maintain their youthful look or farmers seeking help for sun damaged skin, Valentia used berries, herbs, barks and other natural ingredients. We also rely on all natural ingredients due to their protective, preventative and corrective powers.

Just like our namesake, Valentia Skin Care products have been formulated with natural and organic cosmetic ingredients that will repair and protect the skin.

After performing extensive research into what skin care customers find most important, we found an overwhelming demand for skin care that is natural, free of toxins and paraben-free. Natural ingredients with an organic base have proven most effective at repairing skin damaged by sun or wind, preventing signs of aging such as wrinkles, dark spots, and reversing the effects of oxidative stress on the skin.

Frequently Asked Questions

At what age should I start using a Retinol? 

 

We recommend to start using a Retinol at age 30. This is the age at which collagen production can start to slow down, and fine lines and wrinkles may begin to form. Starting at age 30, using a Retinol 3 times a week can help slow the aging process. For women 40+ we recommend using the Retinol ever other night, or every night if your skin can tolerate it.

Which one is for me, a Retinol serum or Retinol cream?

 
To maximize the benefits from Retinols we recommend using Valentia Night Revive Retinol Serum and Night Revive Retinol Cream in combination with each other. The serum will penetrate deep into the skin, and the cream will lock it into place.

Alternatively, if you are looking for just one Retinol product. We recommend the Night Revive Retinol Serum for oily/combo to normal skin types, and the Night Revive Retinol Cream for dry-normal or sensitive skin types. The cream is a richer formulation that will help prevent your skin from experiencing further dryness.

Can I use this Retinol serum during the daytime? 

 

No. Retinols are meant to be used only at night as they can make the skin more sensitive to damage from the sunlight. When using a Retinol at night, make sure to use an SPF of 20 or higher during the day to protect your skin.

Exploring Different Skin Tightening Methods

Exploring Different Skin Tightening Methods

Sagging or wrinkly skin might not be life threatening, but it can certainly have a bad impact on your self-esteem. That’s why you’ll be glad to know that there are plenty of different skin tightening methods available to you. Exploring all of them before you choose a treatment is essential. Otherwise you could waste time and money, put yourself at unnecessary risk, or simply not achieve the results you want as quickly as you otherwise might.

Treating Minor Skin Sags on Your Own

If your skin sags are minor, you might be able to treat or cover them by yourself. You can use medicated creams, lotions, or even makeup to do that. Check local drugstores for creams that include retinoids, minerals, and vitamins. If you think you need something stronger, you can ask your dermatologist to write you a prescription for a stronger lotion.

The trick to treating minor skin ailments with creams and lotions is to remember to use them each day for an extended period of time. It can be very easy to forget to do that. So, you need to create and stick to a daily skincare routine, if you choose that treatment route. Alternatively, you can look into the use of medical skincare devices to treat your skin at a local clinic instead.

Undergoing Laser or Thermage Skin Treatments

Among the medical skincare equipment out there are Thermage and laser treatments, which are not the same thing. Although, they do similar things in different ways. A Thermage treatment is basically another name for a form of radio frequency treatment. It uses particular sound waves to get down into the lower layers of skin and stimulate them.

A laser treatment acts similarly to a radio frequency treatment in that it can stimulate the deeper layers of skin, but it does so with light and heat instead of sound waves. Both treatments stimulate the cells in such a way that the patients body should start to make more naturally fortifying substances. Among those substances are collagen and elastin, which are the materials that help skin bind together and stay smooth and tight.

Other Things That Lasers Can Do for You

In addition to stimulating your cells from within, some laser treatments can also help your skin to look better in other ways. For instance, they can remove scars and treat discolored spots of skin. They can also resurface your skin by removing the top layer so that lower layers that are healthier can replace the dead surface cells. However, it’s important to understand that skin resurfacing and skin tightening treatments are not the same thing, even though they both can be done with laser machines.

Other Skin Tightening Procedures That Are Available

Lasers, radio frequencies, and lotions aren’t the only ways to treat loose skin besides facelifts. For example, you might choose to have an ultrasound therapy. Although it uses a type of sound waves like Thermage treatment, Ultherapy, as it’s commonly known, uses a frequency of sound that can get into deeper tissues.

You might also choose to have Botox injections or other “filler” treatments to stretch or fill out your skin. It all depends on your needs, budget, and personal preferences. Just remember that, aside from a facelift, almost all treatments are definitely going to have to be repeated regularly if you want to keep your skin from sagging again in the future.

Summertime is my favorite time of year! I love spending a #DayAtTheBeach with my favorite book, some snacks, and my favorite summertime beverage.
