Retinol has become the must-have anti-ageing skincare ingredient over the past year. Dermatologist-approved and proven to minimise fine lines and wrinkles as well as pigmentation, Retinol has become a staple ingredient in serums, moisturisers and eye creams aimed towards turning back the hands of time.

Very recently, Retinol has started to appear in body care. As many signs of ageing, such as wrinkles and skin sagging, occur on our body, many brands have started to incorporate Retinol and other retinoids in body creams and treatments.

What is retinol?

A chemical from the Vitamin A family, Retinol works to smooth out the skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles diffusing pigmentation which may have been caused by sun damage. As well as exfoliating, Retinol boosts the production of collagen in the skin and helps to fight free radicals which can cause further premature ageing.

If you're considering incorporating anti-ageing body care in to your beauty routine, we've curated an edit of our favourite Retinol-infused bodycare products to help you firm your skin and smooth the appearance of wrinkles on your body.

REN Skincare AHA Smart Renewal Body Serum

Harnessing the powers of the gentle AHA Lactic Acid, the REN Skincare AHA Smart Renewal Body Serum works to improve the tone and texture of the skin on your body, lifting dead skin cells to leave your skin glowing.

The innovative formula enriched with Retinol helps to combat pigmentation and uneven skin tone giving your skin a smooth and even appearance. When massaged into your skin, the Body Serum strengthens the natural defensive barrier of your skin, boosting its overall health and leaving the skin on your body looking firmer and more radiant.

Eve Lom Time Retreat Hand Treatment

It is well known that our hands are often tell-tale signs of ageing. As wrinkles form quickly on our hands as we age and we put them through so much each day, choosing a hand treatment which includes Retinol is a wonderful way to combat the fine lines and wrinkles appear.
