Is retinol good for the skin?
Retinol, sometimes known as vitamin A, is an antioxidant that may help to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, ultimately promoting better, healthier skin.
Additionally, it may help to shrink those stubborn breakouts by reducing inflammation, one of the leading causes of acne.
What does retinol do?
Retinol is a derivative of vitamin A, a vital nutrient that contributes towards the normal function of cell turnover and skin renewal.
When added to skincare products, it can brighten your skin tone and prevent the early signs of ageing.
Whilst suitable for most of us, it’s usually recommended that people should start using retinol in their mid-20s or early 30s.
What is retinol?
Retinol, also known as vitamin A, is an essential nutrient which serves a number of different purposes in your body.
When used in skincare products, retinol helps to stimulate the production of collagen, a protein which is one of the natural building blocks in your body.
By stimulating collagen production, retinol helps to speed up the production of new skin cells and the shedding of older skin cells, revealing brighter, younger-looking skin.
In this way, retinol can also help to reduce the appearance of fine lines, pores, and dark spots.
When should retinol be applied?
Retinol should always be applied in the evening as it’s very sensitive to light, which is why it’s usually packaged in a dark container.
To prevent your skin from sun damage, apply just before you go to bed and allow the product to work its magic while you sleep.
