As you age, your collagen production slows down. Retinol, when applied, works to boost collagen production in your skin. But for many people incorporating Retinol into their skincare routine is similar to finding the last piece of the puzzle. Though it is a derived form of Vitamin A, topical application on the skin can cause some irritation. Retinol is ‘The’ solution to the anti-aging problem but a more nature-based Revinage is also gaining popularity due to its non-irritable component. Let us learn through the benefits and side effects of the anti-aging ingredients.

Not only it pair well with anti-aging products, but it also goes really well with vitamin C, essential for skin nourishment,
