Most people can benefit from the use of a retinol. As we age the skin’s natural exfoliation process slows. This results in dull looking skin, with a thicker layer of dead skin cells on top of the skin. It also means fewer new plump skin cells. Retinol is a key anti-aging product as it addresses both of these concerns.

After age 20 skin slowly starts to slow its natural exfoliation process. By the time we are 40 our skin is taking about twice as long as it did at 20 to naturally shed these dead skin cells. This results in two times the amount of dead skin cells sitting on the surface of the skin. Most people will want to start to incorporate a retinol to their skincare routine around age 30 when looking to address and prevent aging. This isn’t to say someone younger then 30 shouldn’t use a retinol, as it can treat a range of skin concerns.

 Retinol will help to exfoliate the top layer of dead skin cells, providing a brighter complexion and more even skin tone. It also helps to stimulate new cells to provide a more plumped skin tone, resulting in the diminished look of fine lines and wrinckles. By aiding the skin in this process it can help increase the skin’s natural exfoliation process as well as strengthen the skin.
