DESCRIPTION

Retinol, the over-the-counter vitamin A derivative clears acne flare-ups, evens out skin tone and texture, stimulates collagen, and minimizes age spots and wrinkles. Retinol is the only medication that has scientifically-proven anti-aging properties.

A dermatologist-approved derivative of vitamin A, clinical trials have repeatedly shown benefits of retinol serums to be the improvement of skin cell change and reducing the breakdown of collagen, which leads to fine lines. Retinol has also been proved to help with skin concerns such as acne, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, dryness, rough skin texture, blemishes.

Always use at night as UV exposure deactivates most retinoids, making them useless.

Always use a retinoid with a daytime broad-spectrum sunscreen. This should be everyone’s first anti-ageing step as at least 80% of why we age is due to environmental aggressors and is avoidable. Retinoids can make skin more sensitive, initially so extra UV protection is essential.

If you're seeking a powerful but lightweight treatment for fine lines and wrinkles, dark spots or acne, consider a retinol serum for face.

Unlike retinol creams, a retinol serum has a fast-absorbing, fluid texture, and can be worn alone (if you tend to be oilier) or layered under your favorite night cream or face oil (if you're on the dry side).

What's more, the smaller molecular structure of a serum allows for a higher concentration of active ingredients. Over-the-counter, you'll find not only retinol, but also other vitamin A derivatives, including retinaldehyde, retinyl retinoate and hydroxypinacolone retinoate.

FAQ

Use Olay’s Retinol Serum in the PM after cleansing and toning and before other serums. Apply a pea-sized amount to the fingers and gently tap into the skin.

You can purchase the Olay Retinol serum from retail stores such as Target, and from online marketing websites such as Amazon.

Use Olay’s retinol serum once or twice a week to begin with to see if your skin reacts, and gradually work up to every other day or three times a week. Another key tip for using retinol is to incorporate it into your night skincare routine only, as it makes your skin more sensitive to sunlight. After you've built up your skin's tolerance to retinol, it's perfectly safe to use every day.

Retinol is a key player in any anti-aging skincare routine. By supporting cellular turnover and stimulating collagen production, Olay’s retinol serum can improve skin tone, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and improve the appearance of hyperpigmentation and firmness.

I used to use Olay Pro-x clear. It cleared my skin and faded spots in 3-5 days. Clear skin. I was devastated when it was discontinued. I've been waiting to find another Olay product with the same results. This serum does that and more! Not only has it help treat acne and prevent new problems, but also has brightened my complexion, faded old scars and pigmentation! Not to mention addressing fine lines and wrinkles. I use it with the famous red jar and can't say enough about my skin.

I use before bed. After only a few days I had brighter skin, smaller pores, noticeable more even tone, and no more flaky skin.

I got this to help with my large pores and stubborn acne from wearing a mask. I couldn't believe the difference I saw after one use! I have pretty reactive skin but my skin loves this stuff! No reaction, no irritation, just beautiful results. I will definitely be buying this again.

I've had this stuff for a year now. It last so long. I only use it when I get breakout which is usually that time of the month. And this stuff in just 2 days get's rid of the pimples. I don't use it everyday which I don't think your suppose too. I could be totally wrong. But for me I use CeraVe as a overall face cream and on certain days I'll use the rental serum. It also smooths out the skin beautifully. I wake up to glowing skin which is so nice to see it has no smell or stinging. I do have sensitive-ish skin this doesn't bother my skin what so ever. I don't wear it under makeup. I use all my face creams at night. I do have combination skin mostly oily i plan on buying more soon sense I'm almost out. It's wonderful, if you are sensitive maybe try and do this serum once a week to kinda incorporate it into your skin routine hope this helps.

This stuff is amazing! I received this product through influenster for review and I'm so glad I did! I use this stuff almost every night and it has worked wonders. If you're not sure what retinol does (like I was) it's a very mild product that helps promote skin cell growth and helps even out skin tone and get rid of dark spots and acne scars (of which I have plenty). I have acne scarring and my face is always red, but this stuff has improved that so much over the last month. I would definitely recommend this product to everyone I know, just remember to keep using it, because you might not see much happen in just a few nights.
