Vitamin A, also known as ‘retinol’, is proven to improve the look of wrinkles and fine lines by increasing collagen production. It’s one of most widely researched anti-ageing ingredients, and has clinically-proven results, which is why it’s number one on my list. There are five main types of retinol (retinoids); retinyl palmitate, retinaldehyde and retinol, which are available ‘over the counter’, and tretinoin and tazarotene, which are prescription only.
Retinyl palmitate, retinaldehyde and retinol are the retinoids you’ll find in mass-market formulas. The one you choose will depend on whether you’ve used retinol before, how deep your wrinkles are and your skin type. The one I suggest is Retinol B3 serum as it has 0.3% retinyl palmitate and is slow release, which means it doesn’t irritate the skin and works overnight. It also contains 10% glycerin to hydrate and 2% B3 to soothe, making it a perfect fit for even dry and sensitive skin types or the Medik8 Retinol 3TR Advanced 0.3%. If you’re looking for something more potent, try The Ordinary Retinol 1%. Use: At night, three times a week. I recommend starting with the lowest concentration of retinol and also gradually working up from once a week to three times a week, and don’t forget to wear SPF the day after using retinol as it increases the skin’s sensitivity to the sun.
