Have you ever consider incorporating retinol in your skincare routine but don't know when to start? There are circumstances where you can start using retinol earlier than you think:
1. 19 years old and below
This only applies through doctor's prescription. Consult with a dermatologist or a certified esthetician on your skin condition. They know best! Never blindly follow just because others of the same age as you are doing so. Each skin differs.
2. 20 to 24 years old
You may start using retinol at this age when your skin aging condition is apparent. This includes visible wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin. Retinol is best used in these conditions to repair skin texture. Consult with a dermatologist or a certified esthetician beforehand.
3. 25 years old and above
The best time to start using retinol! But what if I don't have any skin issues such as acnes? Doesn't matter! Bare in mind that retinol is not an acne-fighting ingredient, its main function is to repair skin texture and delay the effects of aging. Your skin will thank you later for the youthful skin you maintain in the next 10 years *wink wink*
