Elevate Your Skincare Routine: Tips on Integrating Retinol


When it comes to reducing the look of fine lines and maintaining a healthy-looking glow, there’s no ingredient in skincare more popular than retinol. Retinol, a derivative of vitamin A, is renowned for its skin-renewing properties to improve the overall appearance of skin and lessen the signs of aging. Retinol is known for reducing the look of fine lines and large pores, improving skin texture and evening out skin tone.

Here are some tips from board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Sonya Abdulla, on how to introduce retinol into a daily skincare routine:

  1. Start Slow: If you’re new to retinol, begin with products that contain a lower concentration of retinol and then wait a few days to understand how your skin responds. A great product to start with is the Neutrogena® Rapid Wrinkle Repair® Regenerating Cream.
  2. Consistency is Key: Apply retinol products consistently to see optimal results. Start with 2-3 times a week and gradually increase as your skin builds tolerance.
  3. Transitioning: Once you’ve established a routine with the Regenerating Cream, consider advancing to the Neutrogena® Rapid Wrinkle Repair® 0.3% Retinol Pro+ Night Cream. This custom retinol vitamin A formula targets the look of deep wrinkles and stubborn dark spots.
  4. Nighttime Application: Retinol works best when applied at night. Incorporate it into your evening routine after cleansing to dry skin and before moisturizing.
  5. Pair with Sunscreen: It’s essential to use sunscreen during the day, especially when using retinol. This helps protect your skin from potential sensitivity to sunlight due to its exfoliating benefits.
  6. Listen to Your Skin: If you experience any irritation, take a break and consider spacing out applications or using a lower concentration.
  7. Hydration is Key: Maintain well-hydrated skin by incorporating a quality moisturizer into your routine to counteract potential dryness associated with retinol use.
