Retinol facial cream has several uses, such as reducing the fine lines and wrinkles, helping to keep the skin firmer,
maintaining the elasticity of the skin, slowing down the breakdown of collagen that helps keep the skin firm,
and lightening the brown spots caused by exposure to sunlight and age. Retinoids can accelerate the cell turnover of the skin. This process helps discoloured skin to be and even-toned smooth.

  • Rosehip oil is great because it has a high vitamin C content and provides anti-aging benefits such as protection from age spots.
