Retinol is the ingredient the world just can’t stop talking about. Influencers are raving about it, skincare specialists and magazines are recommending it, and it’s all over TikTok; but what is it, and why is it such a huge deal?
Retinol is Vitamin A in skincare form and ultimately, it prevents and reverses aging. That means it targets everything from sunspots and wrinkles to clogged pores and acne.
Retinol is so vital to our skin that everyone over the age of 20 should be using it.
It isn’t a question of if you should use Retinol, it’s a matter of how to get started and which product to use.
What are the different kinds of retinol, and what’s the right product for a new user? What other key products do we need to be incorporating into our skincare regimen?

She gives us an in-depth breakdown of retinol and why it’s a core part of any anti-aging skincare regimen. She also shares some retinol hacks and tricks you didn’t know you needed!
