Does Retinol For Wrinkles Work?

Find out how retinol for wrinkles actually works and how it can make you look years younger

Many women that find that they are starting to develop wrinkles are not quite ready to go under the knife or get cosmetic procedures just yet. Many turn to retinol for wrinkles, a common wrinkle cream that can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Retinol is a Vitamin A compound, one of the first antioxidants to be used in nonprescription wrinkle creams. Antioxidants work by neutralizing free radicals, which are responsible for breaking down skin cells and causing wrinkles. Retinol for wrinkles is a slightly less potent combination than its prescription counterpart, Tretinoin. Read 12 Anti Aging Skin Care Ingredients for a list of products that readers swear by.

Retinol for wrinkles works by stimulating the production of collagen in the skin, giving skin a plumper, firmer appearance. Retinol urges skin cells to rejuvenate themselves faster, thereby promoting healthy cell growth to occur more quickly. They not only reduce the amount of wrinkles on the face but also tighten and firm skin for more dramatic results. When treating skin with retinol for wrinkles, you may at first find that your skin is more red and flakey than usual. If you find this to be a problem, kick your usage back to every other night and wait at least thirty minutes to apply after washing your face. Also limit your sun exposure and always wear sunscreen and a hat, as retinol tends to make skin more sensitive. Using retinol for wrinkles is the next best thing to getting a full-on face peel.

I just started incorporating retinol in my nighttime routine. I am 27 and have started to notice a few signs of aging. It's too soon to tell, but I hope that even if I can't erase damage that has been done, I am preventing future signs of aging.
