Tackle Fine Lines, Uneven Skin Tone and Breakouts With These 8 Retinol Serums
When it comes to incorporating retinol into your skincare routine, slow and steady wins the race. This is not a product that can be rushed in its introduction to your skin and for very good reason. Vitamin A products are extremely strong, which is why we love them, but when used incorrectly, can produce an uncomfortable result.
Vitamin A products like retinol encourage the turnover of skin cells, while also working to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Retinol is also great at targeting uneven skin texture and tone as well as breakouts. It’s a pretty magical product but must be handled with care, especially if you’re a beginner.
To make this process easier, we’ve rounded up some of the best retinol serums on the market — for both beginners and more advanced users. These are beloved for their ability to target the signs of ageing and leave your skin glowy, but even the most gentle formulations should still be integrated slowly.
Each product will have its own directions, so best to follow these, but if you are incorporating a new vitamin A serum into your skincare routine, it’s best to start by using it one night a week. You can eventually increase this use once your skin adjusts but it’s best to start slow to avoid disrupting your skin barrier, which can lead to dryness, redness and irritated skin.
