Our No.1 skincare recommendation is always going to be “Wear SPF! Seriously!” But our second is “Use Retinol”

When it comes to reversing the signs of ageing skin, Retinol is hands down the ingredient you should be looking out for.  It has the power to accelerate skin renewal and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Vitamin A has long been a hot ingredient in the skincare industry, with many brands using it as one of their main weapons for fighting the signs of ageing, Acne and Pigmentation and sun damage.

The main thing you need to know is that you don’t need a high concentration to get the benefits. If you are new to retinol we recommend you start low and work your way up.  Slathering on retinoid creams won’t only cause you to quickly use up your supply, but it can also cause redness, dryness and irritation, so always follow the advice of your skincare professional.

The benefits of this wonder ingredient are:

  • Promotes skin’s natural moisturising factor and gives a radiant glow
  • Strengthens skin’s outer layer to keep it firm
  • Stimulates the production of natural protein to keep the skin looking healthy
  • Supports the skin’s immune system and help prevent breakouts
  • Promote collagen and elastin production

We can always tell when someone is using Retinol. They will have that dewy, fresh-faced look, like they’ve just had a facial! It is by far one of the best ingredients you can have in your skincare tool box!
