Sleeping Beauty's got nothing on you.
Retinol might just be the holy grail of skincare ingredients. It not only clears your skin of build-up in your pores, but also can help build up your collagen to thicken your skin, erase fine lines, and even out skin tone. Dr. Shereene Idriss, a New York-based dermatologist, recommends using retinol creams at night after cleansing your skin from the day's impurities.
Dr. Idriss also recommends introducing retinol into your beauty routine slowly, but surely. "Start with one night a week and see to see how your skin reacts before adding a second night a week and so forth," says Dr. Idriss. "If you find yourself to be extremely sensitive, then apply your moisturizer before applying your retinol in order to make it a little bit less effective and less irritating."
Ahead, shop a few retinol night creams to get you started on your path to dream skin.
