What's Wrong With Retinol?
It happens to everyone. You wake up one morning and look in the mirror and you almost do a double take…when did your face start to look so old and tired?
Upon closer examination, you notice the fine lines appearing around your eyes and mouth.
No - is your skin actually aging? Not if you can help it!
So you head out the door to the local beauty supply store and ask an employee what you can use to get rid of wrinkles. They lead you to an endless aisle of overpriced products containing retinol.
“This is what you need to get rid of those wrinkles!” they say as you swear they are staring right at your wrinkles and smirking.
But how much do you really know about retinol? Is it safe? Does it work? Why are there so many warnings about redness, irritation, and even skin cancer?
