What Does Retinol Do?
Retinol can be used to treat a wide variety of skin concerns, including acne scarring, large open pores, sun damage, uneven skin texture and pigmentation and all signs of ageing including feathery and deep laughter lines. With such all-round benefits, retinol can turn the skin around dramatically in a short space of time. It’s a bit of a superhero in the skincare world!
Retinol has been proven to boost collagen production and prevent its breakdown, resulting in a reduction of wrinkles and prevention of fine lines. It works to speed up cell turnover, helping fresher and more youthful skin cells to make it to the surface more quickly.
Retinol also unclogs pores which makes it particularly great for acne and scarred skin too. For dull skin, it helps drive a dewy and more fresh-faced radiant glow. It also helps improve the condition of rough and dry skin, improving the look and feel of the skin.
