Retinol, a derivative of Vitamin A, is very beneficial for the skin. It can help reduce the appearance of bumps and large pores, help fade discoloration, and even help smooth lines and wrinkles.
The skin undergoes a micro-peeling which is not visible to the naked eye, but is very effective in increasing cellular turnover. As a result of this action, the new, fresh skin is extra sensitive to the effects of the sun.
Using Retinol consistently ensures you reap the benefits of its action on the skin.
You can use Retinol during the summer PROVIDED you are very diligent with the application of sunscreen.
If you cannot consistently protect your skin with sunscreen, it is best to discontinue use of Retinol and resume it in the fall.
