Retinol has become a skincare go to with high street brands flooding the market with what appears to be a skincare miracle, but what is it?
Retinol, also known as Vitamin A, is used as an anti-aging skincare ingredient. It increases the amount of collagen, the main protein in the skin, making it plump, reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
It is best used in the evening and moisturise after and is recommended you avoid direct sunlight and wear sunscreen the next day.
We recommend consulting a professional before choosing to use retinol on your skin, especially as a stand-alone product that is not included in a moisturiser.
