Retinol is also known as Vitamin A which is an ingredient that helps resurface the skin. Its exfoliating properties help with getting rid of dead skin cells, healing acne, and preventing fine lines and wrinkles. By adding this to your nightly routine, you’ll be able to get that glowy and firm skin you’ve been wanting!
Who It’s Recommended For
We recommend using Retinol only if you're 18 years old or older, unless prescribed by a dermatologist.
- People below 18 don’t really need retinol in regards to preventing wrinkles, as skin at that age generally has a high cell turnover rate! This means that when you’re young, your skin is really good at renewing itself so you are naturally getting rid of dead skin cells and resurfacing the skin.
- Depending on the concentration, it can be too strong. Adding the incorrect concentration and type of Retinol to your skincare routine can cause more damage than good, so make sure you check with your dermatologist if you're planning to incorporate a product with this ingredient!
