What it is:
The Ordinary Retinol 0.5% in Squalane is a water-free solution that contains 0.5% pure retinol, a form of vitamin A that is known for its skin-renewing properties. The addition of squalane, a plant-derived oil, helps to hydrate and nourish the skin.
What it does:
Retinol is a powerful ingredient that works by increasing cell turnover and boosting collagen production, resulting in smoother, firmer, and brighter skin. When used regularly, this serum can help to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin texture and tone, and brighten the complexion. It is important to use this product in a slow and gradual manner, starting with once or twice a week, and gradually increasing frequency as the skin becomes more acclimated to it. Overuse or improper use of retinol can result in irritation and sensitivity.
