Retinol: Why It's A Superstar Ingredient

We’re sure you’ve heard talks of retinol when it comes to skincare: but skincare can be confusing at the best of times, so we’re here to make things that bit easier for you.

Retinol, a vitamin A derivative, is mainly used to treat skin concerns such as acne and ageing. It works by stimulating the development of skin cells. Also, retinol acts as an exfoliator, boosting collagen formation and reducing the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles. The result: a smoother, clearer, more youthful, and plumper complexion.

It may take several weeks to see any improvements from your retinol-containing skincare products, but consistency is key.

So, who can use retinol? The best news is that there’s a retinol to suit every skin type, you just have to find what works for you. If you’re struggling with any of the following skin concerns, retinol will be a great product to add to your routine: problematic skin and acne, fine lines and wrinkles, exfoliate the skin, balance sebum production, neutralises free radicals, boosts production of collagen and elastin, promoting skin health, refines skin texture, helps with uneven skin tone, sunspots (photo damage), hyperpigmentation such as melasma.

Don’t forget, always use retinol at night only and always follow up with SPF the next morning as it can leave your skin more open to sun damage.

Check out some of our best selling retinol products below, happy shopping!

Environ Focus Care Youth+ Concentrated Retinol Serum 1

When it comes to professional style products, Environ is up there with the best of the best. This particular Retinol is the first of three serums that help in the improvement of skin tone, texture and the prevention of pre- mature aging. When used correctly they can give the skin a firm and smooth looking appearance improving its overall health and radiance.

 

CeraVe Resurfacing Retinol Serum

For a bargain alternative, look no further than CeraVe. A lightweight serum that should only be used in the evening.

Another budget friendly option, the Inkey List Retinol is up there with our favourites. This particular serum releases retinol slowly over a longer time period to help to target the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with less irritation risk.

With its lightweight formula that firms and tones the skin, it reduces the appearance of wrinkles while leaving your skin looking youthful and dewy.

 

SkinCeuticals Retinol 0.3

Another amazing brand, the SkinCeuticals Retinol 0.3 contains 0.3% retinol and is scientifically proven to help diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and age-spots.
