Retinol has proven itself time and again as one of the most effective anti-aging skincare ingredients out there. It is part of the retinoid family, a group of ingredients derived from vitamin A which are known for their ability to reduce visible signs of aging like dark spots, wrinkles, a dull complexion, and loss of firmness and elasticity. Retinoic acid, the strongest form of topical vitamin A, is only available with a prescription. But retinol and other popular derivatives like retinyl palmitate and retinyl propionate are widely used in over-the-counter serums, creams, oils, and cleansers. Not only are they more easily accessible, but these products are also gentler on the skin and less likely to cause irritation than retinoic acid (although you’ll need to be a little more patient to see results). Starting tonight, add one of these 10 retinoid products to your skincare regimen!
