Are you using retinol correctly? I'm only asking because I recently learned the hard way that I’m still not.
Now riddled with tender-the-touch, dry patches on the left side of my face, I'm reminded that the skin needs to build tolerance to this potent ingredient, regardless of your skin type. And while process of getting adjusted to your newly resurfeced skin can take up to four weeks, Jennifer Garner is here to tell us why we shouldn’t stray too far away from this essential anti aging ingredient.
“I love a lot of favorite drugstore things, but right now my favorite is Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Retinol Oil because it’s hydrating,” she told the magazine.
SHOP IT: Amazon, $25 (originally $30)
So, I’m giving retinol another try because the truth is in Garner’s glowing skin. If you’ve been a long-time fan of the star, you know that she’s been flaunting her youthful-looking bare skin on Instagram while being quarantined at home.
With regular (and proper) retinol use, the skin looks more refined and refreshed. As one of the few do-it-all skincare ingredients, retinol unclogs pores, exfoliates the skin and reduces the appearance of pigmentation all while improving acne and fine lines and wrinkles. Over time, enhances the inner radiance for a more youthful complexion.
Thank you for the gifts and lessons of this summer. God bless teachers, faculty and administrators as they guide us through this big question mark of a school year. Bless the parents trying to make it all work. And the children who are learning to make the best of things in ways we couldn’t have predicted. Help us remember we hold each other in our hands. And please God, preserve our collective sense of humor. Amen.
