A lot of people ask what is retinol and what are the side effects. We have you covered here!

What is Retinol?

Retinol is derived from Vitamin A and fat-soluble vitamins like carrots, eggs and sweet potatoes. Amanda Hagen, a certified esthetician and Internation educated for Glo Skin Beauty said to Today,” Retinol is a gold-standard ingredient in skin care because it alters the behavior of aged cells so they act in a more youthful manner. It smooths and refines skin’s texture, enhances skin radiance and treats aging.”

It has anti-ageing elements that help in accelerating skin, reducing ageing, bad texture and age spots. They also prevent wrinkles and brightens dull skin.

What is the side effects of retinol?

  • It takes time for the skin to adjust. Hence, you can see dryness, redness and even flakiness of the skin.
  • Amanda suggests, “”Begin slowly by adding it into a nightly routine one to two times per week for the first week and increasing it gradually from there, depending on how the skin reacts. If there is visible redness or peeling, use it once per week for a month then increase to twice per week and monitor the skin for irritation before increasing use. “
  • Do not forget to apply sunscreen before heading out to the sun. It becomes sensitive when sunray hits and sunscreen will prevent the skin from drying.

However, pregnant women or planning on getting pregnant are advised to consult their doctors first before using retinol treatment.
