Retinol might sound scary, but adding it into your skincare routine can have some impressive results. As an ingredient, it has been proven to reduce fine lines, as well as pore size and an uneven complexion. So, if you haven’t already got a Retinol product in your routine, now is the time to try it out…
SKINCITY skincare Total Repair Retinoate Treatment – shop
It would be a shame not to include a SKINCITY skincare product, especially this one. It’s perfect for mature skin but also congested, blemish-prone complexions to renew, brighten, repair and smooth. This innovative cream can be left on the skin for 20 minutes or it can be applied and kept on overnight. It’s formulated with a new generation Vitamin A known as Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate alongside Ceramides to support the skin barrier and to restore a healthy, youthful appearance.

SkinMedica Retinol Complex 0.25 – shop
This product comes in a variety of different strengths, but we’d suggest starting with the 0.25 if you have never used a Retinol before so that your skin can get used to it. This concentrated serum combines an easily tolerated amount of Retinol with corrective Niacinamide and super hydrating Squalene to target rough texture, breakouts and dullness.
Medik8 Retinol 3TR – shop
This serum teams up with the skin’s nightly regeneration cycle to target any signs of ageing while you sleep. It contains a specialist time-released Retinol which gradually releases into the skin over a period of time to stimulate cell turnover gradually. With continued use, this serum will boost collagen production to deliver a noticeably plumper and rejuvenated complexion in a matter of weeks.
Paula’s Choice CLINICAL 1% Retinol Treatment – shop
Formulated with 1% Pure Retinol, this lightweight lotion effectively resurfaces and rejuvenates the skin, which is just one of the reasons why it is a Skincity favourite! Due to its purity, the Retinol stimulates collagen production to soften the signs of ageing while stimulating cell renewal to target sun damage, large pores and acne. With consistent use, expect skin to become clearer, firmer and more radiant.
