A alcohol, as a widely used and effective ingredient, is often used in anti aging skin care products. It is worthy of the name of anti-aging code. But on the other hand, because of its irritation and instability, many people are holding a doubt that they want to try and do not know how to try it.
After finishing a lot of lessons, Liye would like to share some knowledge about a-alcohol and some of her used a-alcohol products to help novice friends confirm how to choose and use a-alcohol~
Why is alcohol a so popular?

Heard that A alcohol is resistant to aging? But I haven’t used it before, and I’m afraid it’s too exciting. What should I buy!

The powder a bottle of Pang’s family was upgraded from a ester to a alcohol after upgrading last year. The microcapsule package is used, which is mild on the basis of improving the efficacy~
As a double effect cream, it also collocation with A alcohol good nicotinamide. On the one hand, nicotinamide can strengthen the skin barrier, make the skin more tolerant and relieve the irritation of a-alcohol; On the other hand, alcohol a can help nicotinamide enhance the brightening effect~

I believe you have heard of their famous brand. The former is used in the old version of Arden, which make only superficial changes. In addition to alcohol a, palmitoyl tetrapeptide-3 and palmitoyl Tripeptide-1 are also used to improve fine lines.
There is also ceramide that Arden loves to use, which can strengthen and toughen the skin barrier. It is very suitable for novices who have the need of anti aging and pursue mild.

Every cent is worth every cent. Liye is quite surprised with the effect of using it. She feels a little bit like closing her mouth. It seems that her skin becomes smoother after using it!
I’ve heard that I’ve used alcohol A. I’d like to try something higher but less exciting.
Neutrogena a night cream ￥ 259.00\/29ml
Neutrogena is a brand that I think is more professional and high cost performance in making A alcohol. When Lily just contacted A alcohol skin care products, he used the cream of his blue tube. This bottle will be slightly higher than that of blue tube, which is suitable for advanced athletes.
Its texture is creamy, its ductility is general, but not very sticky. It is suitable for oil skin. The subsequent moisturizing effect is slightly weak. There is also a slight aroma~
ROC gold glue ￥ 298.00\/30 capsules
C-rock is the originator of a-alcohol research. It has been more than 60 years to focus on a-alcohol research. One of its classic products is ROC eye cream, and the other is the ROC gold gel that Liye will recommend today~
Its formula is relatively simple, mainly relying on a alcohol, ceramide and lipochroman (super antioxidant) these three kinds of active substances to play the role. Here is lipochroman, which can protect the activity of a-alcohol, resist free radicals and play an antioxidant effect~
Although it is an oily capsule, its texture is not very oily, very water, and its fluidity is very good~
The skin is well tolerated, and the two kinds of them are not awesome enough to make them stronger.
OBAGI0.5% retinol extract 555 \/28ml
OBAGI is an effective skin care brand from the United States. It is known as \
Its design is a smaller kind of pressing port, which can isolate the contact with the air and maintain the activity of the product. The texture is also emulsion like, and it has a little moistness and comfort.

Murad is a relatively gentle existence compared with other American medicine brands! It’s relatively strong for sensitive skin!)
Its facial essence uses retinol three power technology. Isosorbide two methyl ether is used as penetration enhancer to help osmosis. Ceramide and antioxidants are used to encapsulate A alcohol + wild soybean extract synergistic effect.

Be fearless. Let the medicine be more powerful.
SkinMedica retinol extract 339 \/28ml
(tuyuan xiaohongshu @ Yumi youmi)
Finally, this brand is not the sister of the city wall, please retreat! Is the sister of the city wall, please consider carefully!
The texture is pale yellow emulsion. The kind of water that touches water looks soft and tender.
(tuyuan xiaohongshu @ Yumi youmi)
It can be divided into three kinds: 0.25, 0.5 and 1.0, but even at the concentration of 0.25, Liye already feels more exciting ~ it takes a long time to establish tolerance, and it is recommended not to use it all over the face~
How to build a alcohol product?
To strengthen the effect of A alcohol, it is only to strengthen its own anti-aging effect or add icing on the cake (plus other effects). However, it should be noted that the ingredients of strong medicine can not be used together. It is better to match with some effective ingredients with repairing effect, such as nicotinamide and peptide.
Olay light sensitive white bottle
Olay light spot white bottle
Even with these two, it’s better to be conservative in the concentration, and take the low + low or low + high collocation, otherwise it may still cause the consequences of rotten face. You can also use the step-by-step method, first build tolerance with one kind of product, and then use another kind of product (the following collocation is the same).
If you are still afraid of making mistakes, please promise me not to think about matching. You can directly use products that contain more than a-alcohol. Generally, they have been tested. Many of the products recommended above are actually like this.
A alcohol products actually make the epidermis thinner and the dermis thicker when they are used. The repairing ingredients have good moisturizing effect and strong sealing, which can help repair the skin barrier~
A alcohol + ceramide, repairing vegetable oil, squalane and other repairing ingredients
Yuze repair conditioning milk
A alcohol tolerance period, may appear reddening and other situations, with soothing products, can help through this period~
A alcohol + allantoin, dextran, B5, licorice essence and other moisture soothing ingredients.

Neutral pure toner
Four, must see the matters needing attention!
Once again, pregnant women should not use it!
(2) vitamin A alcohol products are easy to oxidize, so try to choose products with a relatively close date of delivery
The first use of retinol, first local test, and then gradually expand to the whole face, and do not use with salicylic acid and other powerful drugs!
Pay attention to sun protection and moisturizing during use.
(5) it is recommended to use it at night.
If the use of mild low concentration products for a period of time, still adverse reactions, please stop using immediately~
All right! Today’s class is over here! Do you know how to use alcohol a?
