Retinol is hugely popular and found in many anti-ageing skincare products, thanks to its proven ability to reduce the appearance of fine lines and dark spots. But while its benefits are many, using retinol products that are too strong for you could also adversely affect the skin.
If you’re a newbie to the world of retinoids, instead of jumping headfirst onto the bandwagon, why not consider a gentler but no less effective alternative like pro-retinol? When applied, pro-retinol converts to retinoic acid and is stored in the skin cells to be used in cell growth, which can play a helpful role in fighting the signs of ageing by improving the texture and appearance of skin.
Read on to find out the differences between retinol and pro-retinol, and why this power-packed ingredient found in the L’Oréal Paris’ Revitalift range might be the answer you’re looking for.
