But… some skin types can find it quite harsh (sometimes it’s too powerful for its own good!) and may experience dryness or irritation.
The good news is, rather than abandoning retinol altogether, you just need to change formulas. Specifically, you should add a retinol oil to your regimen. Because this stuff is gold for giving skin a glowy (and youthful) look, along with all those anti-ageing benefits.
The beauty of facial oils is they’re emollients (they soften and strengthen the outer layer of skin) and occlusives (they form a seal to lock in moisture). But they also penetrate deeply into the skin - and quickly - so your skin gets a good hit of hydration that’s sealed in for longer-lasting benefits. Hello full-time glow.
Now imagine when all the anti-ageing goodness of retinol comes together in a nourishing, radiance-enhancing facial oil formula. Well, there’s now a product that does just that.
Neutrogena® Rapid Wrinkle Repair®Retinol Oil is putting retinol oils on the map - at an insane price of just $42.99, might we add. Formulated with Retinol SA, which is scientifically proven to be a superior form of vitamin A, in as little as one week you will start to see an improvement on the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
The lightweight oil absorbs quickly and deeply into skin, and won’t leave behind any greasy residue. Just a lovely pop of radiance. With continued use, this oil elixir goes to town on your stubborn, deep wrinkles - you know the ones, many of them like to hang around your cheeks and eyes - and signs of pigmentation. In four weeks, their appearance is reduced and your skin will look more even, youthful and glowing all on its own (no illuminator required!).
To use it, add the Retinol Oil into your night-time skin care routine. After cleansing, apply 4-5 drops into the palm of your hand and massage it into skin in circular motions. Follow with a moisturiser.
