If there’s one product I recommend it’s a retinoid. It is essential that once you approach your early thirties (earlier if you’re struggling with acne), that you begin incorporating a retinoid into your nightly skincare regimen.
Retinoids are in a class of vitamins that when applied topically increases cell turnover. Rapid cell turnover is necessary in order to keep those top layers in the Epidermis nice and exfoliated. This keeps your skin texture smooth, tightens your pores, and prevents congestion/breakouts in the skin.
It’s easy to see how everyone should be using one after hearing all of that! Below are some of my favorite, user-friendly retinoids. By user-friendly I mean they don’t cause any skin peeling or redness and irritation that some other can (and therefore deter you from using them consistently).
Take a look and see which one is best for your skin type!
