Get ready to upgrade your skincare regimen with retinal. Derived from vitamin A, this powerhouse ingredient is proven to work 11 times faster than retinol. It's a sure-fire way to minimise wrinkles, but it'll also leave your skin looking plumper, brighter, and all-around dreamier than ever before.

It works because it speeds up cell turnover to encourage skin repair and kick-start collagen production. And not only is retinal faster-acting than classic retinol forms, but it also has anti-bacterial properties too, making it perfect for oily, blemish-prone, and acne-prone skin types.

Medik8 is one of the world leaders in retinal skincare, and their crystal retinal is a next-generation formula that delivers unmatched, age-defying results. Because retinal acts quickly it does mean it can be more harsher on your skin, but the brand has you covered with their Medik8 Crystal Retinal 1 Serum. This formula has 0.01% of stabilised retinal, so it's perfect for total beginners to start their retinal journey. After you've finished your first bottle, you can then move up to their higher dose, Medik8 Crystal Retinal 3 Serum. And eventually, all the way up to Medik8 Crystal Retinal 10.

Only apply retinal at night, because it can make your skin sensitive to the sun. And always remember to apply SPF the next morning to protect your skin from UV rays. If you find retinal is a little irritating on your skin, you can always layer it with your favourite moisturiser. First, apply a layer of moisturiser to your skin, then apply your retinal, then another layer of moisturiser on top – like a retinal sandwich!
