Among the multitude of anti-aging skin-care products on the market, one ingredient stands out: retinol. Retinol is considered the gold standard ingredient in anti-aging products because of it’s proven ability to stimulate and reproduce collagen in the skin.
So what exactly is this miracle ingredient?
In the most basic definition, retinol is essentially the purest form of Vitamin A, which is one of the best vitamins to put on your skin. Retinol is one of the most powerful anti-aging ingredients that re-texturizes skin, reduces wrinkles, plumps skin and reduces pore size.
Retinol-based products can sometimes cause redness, so the most opportune time to use one is in the evening, also your body works hardest at night to fight and repair damage from the day. While using a retinoid it is important (i.e. mandatory) to use a high level of SPF protection in your daily regimen.
