If you’ve done your anti-aging homework, no doubt you’ve heard the word retinol tossed around quite a bit. Beloved by beauty industry pros for years thanks to its ability to help minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, retinol is one seriously popular ingredient in the formulas of anti-aging skin care products. Keep reading to learn more about retinol and how to add it to your skin care routine with our best skin care products formulated with Pro-Retinol A.
According to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), retinol—a derivative of vitamin A—can help unclog pores and miminize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with continued use over time. Just keep in mind that the AAD recommends starting slowly to help avoid any dryness that may occur when using retinol. The AAD also recommends taking sun protection measures after using skin care products formulated with retinol, including applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher as directed, limiting your amount of time in the sun, especially between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., seeking shade, and covering up exposed areas in long sleeves, pants, UV-blocking sunglasses, and a broad-brimmed hat.
If you’re serious about starting an anti-aging regimen, consider using skin care products formulated with retinol on a consistent basis. The following skin care products are formulated with L’Oréal’s Pro-Retinol A, a powerful anti-wrinkle ingredient.
L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Face & Neck Contour Cream: When it comes to skin care, it’s important to pay attention to your neck, in addition to your face. This face and neck cream is formulated with Pro-Retinol A to help accelerate skin renewal. The non-greasy cream helps to improve skin’s elasticity and reveal smoother, firmer-looking skin. Smooth it over your neck and jawline morning and night after cleansing. In the morning, make sure to follow up with broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect against both UVA and UVB rays as well as stay out of the sun and cover up any exposed areas.
L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Night Cream: Sadly, as you age, the natural lifters in the skin that are responsible for your complexion’s firmness and youthful look start to break down, which can lead to fine lines wrinkles appearing more visible and skin feeling less firm. This night cream is formulated with Pro-Retinol A to help accelerate skin renewal. It also hydrates overnight. After cleansing at night, smooth the night cream over your face—then enjoy sweet dreams!
L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Eye Cream: Do your eyes give away your age? Consider adding an eye cream, like this one—which is formulated with Pro-Retinol A—to your daily beauty routine. It can help reduce the appearance of dark circles, plus it provides long-lasting hydration. Dab a tiny bit of eye cream on after cleansing but before applying moisturizer, morning and night.
