Think your routine is working for you? Wait until you see these sneaky ways your skin care habits are causing wrinkles, zits, and more
Rule No. 3: Retin-A and retinol are just for wrinklesThe truth: Gold says these ingredients are for everyone. Or at least, everyone who wants help with acne, wrinkles, pore size, skin care prevention, or skin tone (so, as we said, everyone).
Gold adds that retinol has been around for close to 50 years and has a ton of research to prove its safeness. So rather than jumping from fad ingredient to fad ingredient, he recommends sticking with tried and true retinol to fix almost any skin issue.
