What are the effects of retinol on the skin?

Star anti-aging active ingredient, retinol became a real beauty must-have when it was discovered by chance by a team of dermatologists in the 90s. Although often prescribed to combat acne, retinol offers impressive results for a wide range of skin problems! In fact, it promotes cell regeneration, reduces inflammation, smoothes skin texture, diminishes wrinkles, fine lines and pigmentation spots, tightens pores and boosts skin radiance. It also stimulates the production of collagen, hyaluronic acid and elastin for a complete anti-aging action . An antioxidant, it also acts against free radicals and external aggressions responsible for premature skin ageing.

Our advice on finally switching to retinol

We particularly recommend applying to the face in the evening, andusing sun protection the following day to protect the skin from the photosensitizing and sometimes irritating effects of retinol. To prevent irritation, we also recommend gradual application, once a week to acclimatize your skin, then 2 or 3 times, before making retinol a full part of your beauty routine. If you notice that your skin is slightly dry, pink or more reactive, it's a sign of inflammation. Reduce the quantity and frequency of use. Note also that retinol is not recommended for pregnant women. Find out all you need to know about retinol here.
