There’s no escaping that as you age, your skin changes, and to keep it in tip top shape your skincare routine needs to step up a notch. While there’s no magic elixir in a bottle for perfect skin (sadly!), retinol come pretty close.
Retinoids (the umbrella term for retinol treatments, more on that below), are heralded as wonder products. You might have heard that they are incredibly good for skin, but also that they are somewhat tricky to use properly.
The reality is that the transformative effects retinoids have on your skin are due to very potent formulations. These positive effects can come with some less appealing side effects too, when used without proper guidance.
