If you’re building an anti-aging skincare routine, you need to incorporate a retinol serum. And if you’re looking for a light introduction to retinol, I highly recommend the Gentle Retinol Serum by Versed.
Ok, let’s start with the why: Why do you need retinol in anti-aging skincare? Retinoids reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by increasing collagen production in the skin. Retinol also stimulates the production of new blood vessels in the skin, improving the appearance of color in the skin. I’ve also seen dark spots fade using retinol – it’s a multi-purpose ingredient that I won’t go without.
I love the Gentle Retinol Serum by Versed because it is specially formulated with sensitive skin in mind, perfect for first-time retinol users. I have always recommended building up to daily use with retinol – start by using it 1-2 times per week on cleansed skin at night (you do not want to wear retinol in the sun), and then increase usage as your skin adjusts to its effects. With the Gentle Retinol Serum by Versed, you could start using it every other day or even every day – it’s that gentle.
But that doesn’t mean it’s not effective! Thanks to this formulation’s antioxidants and anti-inflammatories, it means there’s no need to worry about redness or dryness. While using this amazing product, I felt my fine lines and wrinkles softening, and my skin stayed miraculously clear!
Here’s how I used this product: After my evening double cleanse routine, I spread two pumps over my face and neck, concentrating on problem areas such as my crow’s feet and laugh lines. I let the product absorb for one minute before moving on to the next step in my routine (usually a serum or a moisturizer). In the morning, I wipe my face clean to start with a clean slate and to protect myself from overexposure in the sun. (Definitely wear sunscreen daily while using a retinol product).
