Apart from sunscreen, retinol is probably the only other thing that dermatologists around the world, unanimously, agree on. Chances are you’ve seen the word alongside buzzwords like ‘anti-wrinkle’ and ‘age-defying’ but haven’t delved deeper into what this fountain of youth and its many miracles are. Well, here’s a crash course on important questions like “what is retinol” and “what does it do”.

Commonly known as RoC, this active ingredient visibly takes years off your appearance, apart from a whole other laundry-list of stuff that’s good for your skin.
What does it do?
While the level of efficacy might differ depending on the form that you use, be sure that you’ll reap all the benefits of retinol to some degree.
Are there any side effects?
Something as powerful and potent as retinol can pose problems for your skin, if not used correctly. Memorize these side effects of retinol so you know what you’re signing up for.
