Retinol, Retinol, Retinol this is the game changer for ageing skin as far as I am concerned. I may not be a Doctor but I can almost guarantee that most dermatologists would agree with this statement. Retinol is a cell communicating ingredient helping to speed up the skin cell turnover which in turn helps to create healthier skin cells and increase collagen over time. People often comment on my youthful skin and I honestly believe it comes down to my persistent use of retinol for over the last 8 years. Retinol is also a great cure for Acne and Pigmentation, there are various strength available (stronger prescriptions aren’t available over the counter and can irritate sensitive skin) but my absolute favourite and highly recommended over the counter retinol is Jan Marini’s Age Intervention Retinol Plus. It is a very well regarded retinol treatment, I have never suffered any irritation using it, and it has transformed my skin making it clearer and younger. This has a proud pole position in my beauty cabinet.
