Retinol is a well reputed anti-ageing ingredient, and many brands use it in their formulas. But what exactly is it?
“Retinoids work by increasing collagen production as well as increasing the rate of skin cell turnover,” says dermatologist Shari Marchbein, M.D. “They also help treat acne, blackheads, and clogged pores by reducing the stickiness of the cells that clog pores, as well as speeding up the rate at which the skin turns over and regenerates.”
However, not all retinol is made equal. Not only are all Medik8 retinols set to drip the active into the skin over time to reduce any irritation potential, they are also all analytically tested for stability so you know that the first drop you use is as potent as the very last. What sets Medik8 best retinols apart from other brands is that they contain a standout ingredient that makes them all the more effective. This is why we strongly recommend Medik8 retinol products.
Both Medik8 Intelligent Retinol and Original Retinol versions allow an increase of the strength of your Vitamin A – something very unique to Medik8. If you’re new to retinol, we would advise phasing it into your skincare regime. So, what Medik8 Retinol products should you try? Here are our top 3 recommendations:
