Retinol is one of the few ingredients that is actually scientifically proven to boost collagen production and speed up cell turnover to diminish fine lines and pigmentation, hence why it’s so sought-after and raved about in the skincare world. This version uses a special “lamellar structure” technology to ensure the active ingredients are effectively delivered into the skin to work their magic. Start by applying this every other night to get your skin used to it, and always apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen the next day.
