Retinol is one of those skin care ingredients that you see everywhere. From creams to serums to sheet masks, retinol is there to pack a powerful punch against aging, dark marks, and dullness. The only problem with retinol is that because of its power, it can be a bit irritating, especially if you’re spending time in the sun. But, if you take care of your skin and mind your sunscreen, a retinol treatment can help reveal younger, healthier looking skin in no time. We’ve rounded up some of the best-selling options for you to try out in your skin care routine.
FOR A SERUM
Eva Naturals Natural Vitamin A Retinol Serum
The retinol in this serum helps with wrinkles, but also helps to promote collagen production and fight sun damage.but There’s also jojoba, vitamin E, and hyaluronic acid.
FOR A MOISTURIZER
Medix 5.5 Retinol Cream with Ferulic Acid
Made with black tea, aloe vera, and chamomile, this moisturizer can help target even sun damaged skin for a smoother complexion.
FOR DEEP WRINKLES

If you have more deep set wrinkles, this is the serum for you. It helps to counteract the skin’s natural tendency to lose elasticity as you age.

Yes, retinol can be put into a sheet mask. The concentrated serum that the mask is soaked in gives your skin a drink of moisture while helping to improve texture and fine lines.
FOR AN OVERNIGHT CREAM

This is the nighttime moisturizer I use and I love it. It’s lightweight, even though it’s made for overnight use. It seals moisture in while delivering powerful retinol to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
FOR A FACE OIL

Retinol combines with Blue Tansy and German Chamomile to create a luxurious face oil. It helps plump the skin and reduce the appearance of dark marks.
