What Is Retinol?


Today’s topic for my skinfographic is retinol because, well, you asked for it.

If you haven’t seen already I have a Monday morning session of ‘ask me anything’ on my Instagram (@scienceandskincare) and a few of you DM’d with questions about retinol.

Questions like: what is it? How is it different from retinoids? And how to use it?

So, I put together this infographic (or should I say skinforgraphic) to help you understand more about retinol.

If you have any questions you would like a skinforgraphic made about then just let me know and make sure to follow me on Instagram because that’s where they get posted first! (It’s also easier to save posts for future reference on there).
