One of the reasons why retinol is so popular in the skincare segment is because it offers more than one skin benefit. To know about this ingredient in detail, we asked Dr. Sonavane about the benefits of retinol for the skin, hereís what she has to say.

i) Exfoliates skin:

While physical exfoliation is essential, including an ingredient that mildly exfoliates the surface of the skin is essential too. Retinol stimulates as well as exfoliates the skin to give you a smoother, more even-toned complexion.

ii) Reduces pigmentation and uneven skin tone:

With regular use, retinol also helps visibly reduce pigmentation spots, fine lines, wrinkles and enlarged pores. This results in even-toned and smooth skin.

iii) Makes skin bright and glowy:

Retinolís ability to boost skinís appearance is unmatched. It is one ingredient that can make your skin tighter, brighter, smoother as well as glowing. Therefore, it is highly recommended by dermatologists to those with dull skin issues.

iv) Offers anti-aging benefits:

Retinol has anti-aging properties. It stimulates collagen production and decreases the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This is why a lot of anti-aging products contain this ingredient.

v) Prevents acne:

Retinol has anti-acne benefits, too. It works especially well in treating comedonal acne. When used on acne-prone skin, retinol can reduce whiteheads and blackheads. Not just that, it reduces acne spots and scarring as well.

**How to use retinol for best results?
- Use retinol at night
- Use gentle skincare products
- Start slow - Retinol can cause redness, dryness and flaking when you first start using it. This is called Ďretinisation'. You can minimise this reaction by starting slowly.
- Use sunscreen

I'm 25 and every other day I use 3†% retinol from The Regular. I'm supposed to stop? In my childhood, I was a poor noodle and never used sunscreen and I'm concerned about early wrinkles because my skin is still blotchy with broad pores.
