Integrating retinol into your beauty routine erases or limits the appearance of pigment spots. The active ingredient regulates the synthesis of melanin being the cause of these spots commonly called “Brown stains”.
Finally, retinol-based cosmetics are effective in getting rid of acne. The active ingredient unclogs clogged pores and regulates sebum production. So say goodbye to all your imperfections!
Be careful with sensitive skin!
However, retinol has its small drawback. For the most delicate skin, its action may be slightly irritating. Additionally, it can make your skin more sensitive to the sun’s rays. Therefore, prefer to apply retinol in the evening and do not neglect sunscreen in the morning. This also protects your skin from aging.
Before incorporating it into your routine, always test retinol products on a small area of your body. It is important to always observe your skin’s reaction to a new product.
If the product leaves you with slight redness, don’t worry! Although the active ingredient may require a little time to adapt to your skin, it should not take long. So are you ready to have beautiful skin in 2024?
