Retinol is considered the skin-perfecting elixir in skincare. It is a form or derivative of vitamin A that is proven to have anti-aging effects. It boosts the skin's ability to produce collagen and it strengthens the protective function of the epidermis (the external layer of the skin). It can also treat acne dislodge clogged pores. Lastly, it has micro-exfoliating properties that can help address skin texture. It's no wonder dermatologists recommend retinol to solve the most common skin issues like breakouts, scarring, fine lines, and wrinkles. (You can read more about retinol here!)
