ARTICLE: Retinol, all you need to know!

Retinol is a pure vitamin A and it is commonly used to treat various skin conditions such as acne-prone skin, discolouration and wrinkles.


Retinol is a synthetic derivative of vitamin A, the group of fat-soluble vitamins. When retinol is applied topically, it converts to retinoic acid by specialised enzymes in the skin.

Topical vitamin A (retinoids) may reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Tretinoin was the first retinoid introduced in 1970s for acne treatment, but later it was established that it can also fade actinic keratosis spots, evens pigmentation and speeds the skin’s turnover.

Retinoids reduce fine lines and wrinkles by increasing the production of collagen. They also stimulate the production of new blood vessels in the skin, which improves skin colour. Additional benefits include fading age spots and softening rough patches of skin. 

  • Because retinoids can cause skin dryness and irritation, it is recommended to use them only every other day at first and then gradually working up to nightly applications.
  • Wear a sunscreen during the day, because retinoids increase the skin’s sensitivity to sunlight. Use them continually to maintain their benefits.
  • Pregnant women or women who are planning to become pregnant should not use retinoids.
