Ask the Esthetician

Q: My dermatologist suggested Retin-A for anti-aging, but I wondered if there are natural options instead?

A: Vitamin A supports the overall health of the skin. It plays a huge role in repairing cells. Vitamin A produces the enzymes that stabilizes the production of collagen, working to minimize fine lines and wrinkles. As well as the production of collagen, vitamin A improves the skin’s elasticity. Natural forms of vitamin A don’t irritate the skin while the prescriptions do at times.
Zenana Spa carries the high-quality line Eminence Organics Skin Care and many of those products contain active ingredients that target anti-aging while treating your skin gently. Eminence products we sell in our boutique for this purpose are Blackberry Pore Refining Serum and Pumpkin Latte Hydration Masque. Many of our products also contain Biocomplex ingredients that contain vitamin A. Professional Eminence treatments include: Yam and Pumpkin Peel, Pineapple Enzymes Peel, and AHA Fruit Pulp Treatment, if you’d like to discuss using one of them when booking a facial.
