Ingredients Matter: Retinol
Simply put, Retinol is the purest form of Vitamin A for your skin— and is relied on in the skin care industry for its powerful anti-aging properties. Vitamin A can be absorbed through foods such as kale, sweet potatoes and carrots, but when applied directly via a serum, it can do wonders for the skin.
Why We Love It:
We love Retinol for its ability to accelerate cellular renewal and assist in collagen synthesis— think minimized appearance of fine lines, pore size and texture irregularities.
Why It’s a Go-To Favorite Ingredient:
Not only does Retinol treat aging skin concerns, it is also known to unclog pores and help control blemishes-great for acneic skin!
Note— Today's retinols are even more beneficial than earlier formulas of retinol and cause less irritation. However, it is important to wear sun protection while using any Retinol.
