Everything you should know about retinol and why it should be a part of your skincare routine.
Retinol has become the hot topic of every skincare conversation. Because of its magical anti-aging properties, retinol has become a staple product in the majority of women's skincare routine. In case, you didn't know about them, here is a rundown of the things you should know about retinol and why it should be a part of your skincare regimen.
What is retinol?
Retinol is a Vitamin A derivative which boosts collagen production and improves cell turnover. It has proven to be helpful in combating skincare concerns such as fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation, larger pores, and acne.
When should you start using retinol?
Because of its magical anti-aging properties, the late twenties is the ideal age to introduce retinol in your routine as that is when the collagen production starts to decline which results in fine lines and uneven skin. However, you can use it when you are younger too, as they say, prevention is better than cure. But be aware, younger skin types may not sure visible results as much as the older skin.
