Retinol is one of my favorite antiaging skincare products!
Retinol is a form of Vitamin A, which was originally prescribed to clear acne but also helped reduce fine lines and wrinkles. It removes dead skin cells and tightens pores.
Makes skin cells behave like healthy, younger cells - this stimulates collagen and elastin production which helps the skin look smoother and firmer. It smooths uneven skin texture.
Stimulates cell growth and turnover from the bottom up and neutralizes free radicals.
Helps to fade pigmentation (dark spots), evens skin tone and prevents further melanin development.
Potential Side Effects
Applied in the evening for beautiful youthful skin...but don't forget your SPF as your skin will be more sensitive to the sun.
