retinol, a type of retinoid derived from vitamin A, is one of the most powerful ingredients you can add to your skincare routine. retinol penetrates to the dermal layer of your skin where it helps neutralize free radicals (unstable molecules that damage skin cells). this helps to boost the production of collagen & elastin. it is clinically proven to help improve the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles, improves uneven skin tone, promotes cellular turnover & is recognized as a mainstay treatment for acne. retinol skincare products need to be used 5 times a week to be effective.
after sunscreen it is the #1 anti-aging ingredient everyone should be using.
