What's Retinol, and Why Do You Need It in Your Skincare?

Skincare has become somewhat of a science, and with so many types of products made for so many types of skin — it can be confusing to learn what’s right for you. So let’s chat about retinol: what exactly is it, and do you need it?


Retinol24 MAX

Olay’s proprietary blend of vitamin B3 + retinol complex hydrates skin for a bounty of benefits. Watch for improvements in fine lines and wrinkles, smoothness, brightness, firming, dark spots, and pores! available at CVS.

Retinol, a type of retinoid, is a skincare ingredient that increases collagen and skin cell turnover — making it a popular ingredient for acne treatment and diminishing fine lines and wrinkles in your skin. Because of its repairing properties, retinol is a product best used at night… which is why I have started getting into Olay’s Retinol24 MAX collection for my nighttime skincare routine.

Given that the Retinol24 MAX collection (complete with a skin serum and eye cream!) is great for nighttime use, Olay Regenerist Ultra RICH Moisturizer makes for the perfect daytime skincare complement to double down on your skin’s hydration and firming needs.

This year has been all about staying home — which means a lot more DIY self care. One of the things I miss the most are my periodic facial appointments, but with the right selection of products I can somewhat recreate the experience for myself right at home! I did an Instagram Live Session with skincare expert Dr. Michelle Henry, where we dove into some of my (and your!) biggest questions around retinol and skincare in general — so if you have a few moments, press play!
