A form of vitamin A, retinol helps promote the skin’s natural exfoliation process—which can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and can help improve the skin's texture and even the skin tone. However, retinol isn't only effective in anti-aging products; it can also help those with acne-prone skin improve the appearance of post-acne marks. Because retinol can break down when exposed to sunlight, we recommend using products containing retinol primarily at night, though products with retinol can be used during the day when combined with a sunscreen.
