Skincare

I was first introduced to retinol at 25 when I was prescribed Retin-A cream to help with my spots. Retinol and I have come a long way since then, and I now use it for reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation. Most effective when used at night after a thorough cleanse, retinol-based creams and serums are high in vitamin A that works to resurface the skin.


Whether this is your first-time considering retinol, or if you’re just looking for a new favourite, here are my fabulous four recommendations…


Garden of Wisdom RetiSTAR Retinol Serum (£9). This is a truly fantastic budget option, suitable for all skin types and especially great for first-time users of retinol. Its strong active ingredients include 0.05% of retinol which is incredibly effective for resurfacing the skin.


Indeed Labs Retinol ReFace (£19). The retinol in this serum is encapsulated within a plant microsphere, so it releases slowly into the skin – this is especially good for first-timers as it won’t cause increased sensitivity as it begins to gently get to work.


Teresa Tarmey Retriderm Max 1% Serum (£50). Generally sold through an aesthetician and hailed for rejuvenating aged skin, this serum is best for skin that isn’t super sensitive. It can cause some peeling due to the blend of professional-strength retinol within the formulation.


Sunday Riley A+ High-Dose Retinol Serum (£70). Beneficial to skin that already has fine lines and wrinkles – thanks to the inclusion of Q10 in the formula – this is a beautiful serum that feels really lovely on the skin.


MEDIK8 Retinoate Intense (£210). I adore this retinol – it’s a fortune, but it’s truly one of the very best I’ve used. Medik8 is one of the brands that I feel does retinol really well. This serum is fused with a powerful blend of retinoate and retinoic acid but, wonderfully, it doesn’t cause flaking.


Medik8 Bakuchiol Peptides Retinol Alternatives (£45). Generally, if you’re pregnant you should not use retinol. So this is a great alternative for expectant mothers as it’s formulated with plant derivatives such as Bakuchoil and samphire-based retinol, instead of vitamin A that may be harmful to foetuses.


So there you have it ladies and boys, the 101 on retinol…
