To many skin care-obsessed women, retinol is considered liquid gold. It's known as a superb anti-ageing product because of its ability to decrease fine lines and wrinkles, but this ingredient can actually do much more. A great retinol product will plump and smooth while improving skin's elasticity, stimulating collagen, exfoliating, and evening its tone.
