Power up your skincare with this vitamin A derivative
Skincare trends come and go, but dermatologists agree retinol is one of the few ingredients proven to give you youngerlooking skin. It’s effective, safe and affordable – definitely worth a try!
So, what is it?
Retinol is an over-thecounter derivative of vitamin A and has been used for wrinkle treatments for over 40 years. Retinol products come in various strengths and formulations and there are plenty of effective options to choose from. If you want a stronger version – meaning faster results – see your doctor or a dermatologist for a prescription. Surprisingly, a script product can be comparable in price with consumer options. A word of warning – if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, retinol is not recommended.
And what does it do?
Put simply, retinol products stimulate collagen production, which reduces fine lines and wrinkles. Retinol also accelerates cell turnover to even out discolouration, smooths skin texture and unclogs pores. If you have acne, these products will help your skin too. Sound impressive? That’s because they are!
