5 Common Retinol Myths Busted!

Retinol, which is basically Vitamin A, improves collagen production in the skin, skin elasticity and fights signs of skin ageing such as wrinkles and fine lines. There are various myths surrounding retinol that might hold you back from exploring this amazing ingredient. Here are some misinformation busted!

You Shouldn’t Go Out In The Sun After Applying Itl: Not exactly true. After you have applied retinol, wear sunscreen over it to prevent any damage.

It Will Give You Immediate Results: Do not expect results in a week or even in a month. It will take 4-6 months for you to see any visible change in your skin.

It Can’t Be Used Every Day: While it completely depends on the concentration of the product you are using, it is safe to use daily. However, we would definitely warn you against multiple applications during the day.

You Shouldn’t Put It Under Your Eyes: You can definitely put retinol under your eyes and if you have sensitive skin and you want to be cautious, apply an eye cream before applying retinol.

It Can Make Your Skin Thin: This statement is false. As stated above, retinol is proven to increase the collagen production in the skin and that makes your skin firm, elastic and healthy.
