Why You Should Be Adding Retinol To Your Skincare
Did you know the retinol is the #1 most search skin care ingredients on google? There is a lot of buzz around this “R” word and I wanted to see for myself what all the hype was about. I’ve spent the last 4 weeks testing the Olay Retinol24 skincare line to see if this powerful ingredient lives up to its reputation and I have to say, it really does.
Firstly, think of retinoids as a super ingredient! They are powerful enough to improve skin texture and overall tone with just a few drops of a serum or cream. The most important factor with using retinol products is how the retinoid is combined with other ingredients. Since retinol can quickly degrade when exposed to air, sun and heat, it has to be formulated properly to remain stable from first use to last. This is where the Olay Retinol24 line becomes really impressive, Olay has created a retinoid formula combined with vitamin B3 that hydrates your skin better than the #1 best-selling retinol!
I’ve been using these products for the last 4 weeks and I can really notice a difference in the texture of my skin and overall skin tone. My pigmentation marks are becoming lighter, my skin wakes up feeling incredibly hydrated and firmer. There are 3 different Retinol24 products to make it easier for you to find what works in your routine, meaning they don’t necessarily have to be used all together. For me, the night eye cream has been a real game changer and the one that has made the biggest difference. My dark circles are fading and I feel like I wake up with brighter looking eyes, which is something I really need after turning 30! Looking forward to keeping this in my skincare routine and to track even more changes as I use it.
