With a wide array of products floating around in the market, navigating through the world of skincare can be confusing. It’s easy to get lost in products that tempt you with ingredients that sound like an opulent indulgence. And while that isn’t a bad thing, you need to actively start seeking ingredients that’ll surely do your skin some good. Lucky for you, we’ve got them right here.
If you’re a skincare fanatic you probably know by now that retinoid is the queen of anti-ageing. As well as one of the most sceptically used ingredients out there. They’re available in all forms including prescription-strength tretinoin to over-the-counter retinol and retinaldehyde. What they’re good at is increasing cell turnover, and bringing new skin cells to the surface. This promotes smoothening of fine lines, wrinkles and banishes scars and discolourations.

L’Oreal Paris Revitalift Night Cream
Olay Regenerist Intensive Repair Treatment
