Singapore Women's Weekly (Singapore) - - LOOK YOUR BEST AT ANY AGE -

Q What are the ben­e­fits of us­ing retinols and how can I in­cor­po­rate them into my skin­care reg­i­men?

Retinols are a vi­ta­min A de­riv­a­tive, which can be found in anti-age­ing prod­ucts. They can stim­u­late the me­tab­o­lism of skin cells and pro­mote collagen syn­the­sis, which in turn re­duces the ap­pear­ance of wrin­kles and helps to lighten dark spots and pig­men­ta­tion. As retinol mol­e­cules are pho­to­sen­si­tive and can lose their po­tency once ex­posed to light, it’s im­por­tant to pick a sta­ble for­mula like the ones used in the Der­ma­log­ica Overnight Retinol Re­pair cat­e­gory. It in­cor­po­rates mi­croen­cap­su­la­tion tech­nol­ogy to pro­tect the mol­e­cules to re­tain their sta­bil­ity, so as to de­liver the best re­sults.
