Retinol is one of the most researched anti-aging ingredients. As a form of vitamin A, it supports skin regeneration and acts as an energy booster for the fibroblasts, cells that are essential to the formation of connective tissue. Fibroblasts stimulate collagen and elastin production, which makes the skin not only look more even, but also younger and more radiant. Retinol is a game-changer for mature skin, but it also visibly benefits younger skin in which it helps prevent impurities, scars and sun damage. It is important to note that retinol should be applied at night because the active ingredient makes skin sensitive to light, meaning that it is essential to protect it with a high SPF during the day. If you are new to retinol, start with a low dosage of 0,1 or 0,3 percent and gradually increase as your skin adjusts to the effects. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, please speak to your doctor or dermatologist before using.
