Beauty’s Urban Dictionary: Retinol

Beauty’s Urban Dictionary: Retinol

Myself being (nearly) in my mid twenties, I’m sure a lot of people my age and a little older will agree that we can sometimes feel a little “out of touch” with some of the latest fads, trends and even the terms used to describe them LOL! Here is an urban dictionary for all the latest beauty buzzwords you need to know that will even have your little sister wondering how “you” know so much.

Another magical skin care super ingredient, Retinol.. Also known as Vitamin A, Retinol is an unbelievable anti-ageing ingredient that helps to increase collagen production AND dramatically reduces / prevents wrinkles. The wonder ingredient is quite pricey but fortunately, it can be medically prescribed to help severe acne sufferers battle their skin condition as the antioxidant is also a great acne buster. Keep in mind, products containing Retinol can cause redness after use so I’d advise to use them at night time.
