The skincare ingredient celebs swear by...
This week, we’re delving back into the wonderful world of skincare to talk about one particular ingredient. Now I receive weekly emails from people saying they’re nervous to try this one, however not only do I swear by it, but celebrities absolutely do too.
As we know, A-List routines come thick and fast and are full of varying recommendations. Although some are highly questionable, they are truly onto a winner with this one…Of course, we're talking about Retinol.
So tonight I thought I’d provide some reassurance and share why the likes of Nicole Kidman, Jessica Alba and Victoria Beckham love Retinol so much, and why your skin will love it too.
Over time this leads to dull, dehydrated and lined faces…Not what the doctor ordered, right?! Thankfully, adding this powerful ingredient into your routine can quite literally turn back the hands of time. It instantly gets to work accelerating cell turnover and makes your skin act younger. This explains why Jessica Alba raves about having noticeably less lines and wrinkles than others her age.
Retinol encourages the skin to repair itself by unclogging pores, reducing swelling and smoothing your complexion. So, whether you struggle with menopausal acne, hormonal spots that come knocking at that time of the month, or those pesky blackheads that make themselves at home on your nose…Retinol has got your back.
As a by-product of all its skin rejuvenating goodness, it leaves you with flawlessly clear skin too.
If SPF is your skins sun protection, then Retinol is your skins sun correction. Within a couple of months of using it you’ll notice any darker patches becoming more unified and even. It’s the secret to keeping Nicole Kidman’s fair skin, crystal clear and radiant.
It’s exactly the reason why I specifically use a gentle form of Retinol in our Ultimate Moisturiser. It means that I can apply it both morning and night and still receive ALL the incredible benefits we’ve talked about, with absolutely none of the annoying side-effects. A genuine game-changer that you can use with confidence.
If you have any more questions about Retinol or would like me to cover any other skincare ingredients, you can send me your suggestions through our social channels. I always love hearing from you 🥰
