Before Olay Retinol24, I hadn’t tried a retinol product. I’ve heard about it before but hadn’t taken the time to learn about it until now!

When I was researching the ingredients, I saw some scary stuff.  However, I was able to learn some really cool things and why the retinol ingredient is so incredible.

So before you shy away from using it, make sure to read the answers to some frequently asked questions below.

What is retinol?

Retinol is a form of vitamin A that can help improve the look of your skin in so many ways!

What does it do?

If it’s formulated properly, there should be no issue using it every night! I found the Olay Retinol24 Night Moisturizer to be very gentle and I was able to use it daily without any irritation.

What age should you start using it?

There are no rules or restrictions! If you can find a product like the Olay Retinol24 Night Moisturizer, then you will get the hydration you’re looking for while getting a potent dose of this miracle ingredient. If you’d prefer a different moisturizer, then you can pair that with a retinol serum.  It’s all about fitting retinol into your existing nighttime routine to ensure you’re still using products you love.

Is it only for older people?

It’s not! This is a common misconception. While retinol does help to improve the look of fine lines and wrinkles, it does so much more. So if wrinkles are not your top skincare concern, not to worry! It helps to brighten your skin, even out your skin tone, smooth out your skin texture and help diminish the look of dark spots and acne scars.

You can start using retinol as early as your mid-twenties – it’s much better to prevent the signs the aging instead of trying to fix them later on!

Should I use Retinol Every night?

Most retinol treatments don’t recommend daily use. However, the Olay Retinol24 line is designed to be effective and gentle enough for daily use. Unlike other competitive brands, Olay Retinol24 remains intact and active providing you with the results you want.

What is the best moisturizer to use with retinol?

If you can find one that has hydrating properties that’s ideal – try to find retinol that will fit into your existing nighttime routine to ensure you’re still using products you love.

So what can retinol do for you?

It can give you bright, smooth skin and it is definitely worth trying! If you’ve used it in the past and it’s given you a hard time, don’t give up on your retinol dreams – just make sure you do your research.

I hope my blog post has demystified the ingredient and helped shine a light on the wonders it can do. Since using the Olay Retinol24 Night Moisturizer, I have noticed a serious skin transformation with smoother, brighter skin and even minimize pores with no irritation! I can’t wait to see what my skin looks like in a couple of months.
