Hailed as one of skincare’s all-time superheroes with most dermatologists wielding it as their top skincare tool (- along with SPF, of course), retinol is one of the most effective ingredients in the modern skincare kit. It helps accelerate skin cell turnover, reduce inflammation, diminish hyperpigmentation, and stimulate collagen production, promoting smoother, firmer, brighter skin. In short, it’s one of the best ingredients to use in all anti-aging skincare rituals.
Smooth skin is always in but it's not always a reality. As we age, cell turnover slows and dead skin cells buildup on skin's surface. This build up causes dullness and uneven texture, which you may recognize as dry, flakey patches that become more noticeable when washing your face or applying makeup. The harsh reality is, while babies' skin cells renew about every 2 weeks (lucky them), more mature skin cells (found on clients 50+) take up to 2 months to regenerate.
Multi-tasking skincare is a must have for those of us looking for products that deliver more. Having a core group of products with multiple uses is crucial for girls (or guys!) on the go, which is why we’ve rounded up our favorite multi-tasking products to combat all of your skincare needs.
