Use Of Retinol For Acne And Post-Acne Scars

Do you know how important it is to add up retinol in your daily skin routine? Need to know why?

Let’s read on with us till the end.

Retinol increases skin cell production. It helps unclog pores. Retinol also exfoliates your skin and increases collagen production, which can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, giving your skin a fresh and plump appearance.

Retinol for acne:

Acne is a common skin condition. When your pores become blocked with dead skin cells and oils, you can develop blackheads, whiteheads or other types of pimples. It works for acne by preventing clogged pores. You may still see pimples for the first couple of months of treatment and your skin might even look worse; this is sometimes referred to as the retinol purge. But if you stick with it, you’ll soon see a clearer skin.

Retinol for acne scars:

Acne scars develop as a result of injury and inflammation. These pink, red or dark spots on your skin can appear as your acne heals, and may last for several weeks. Additionally, picking or popping your pimples causes more injury to the skin and may leave permanent scars. Topical retinol treatments can help reduce the swelling and inflammation that come with breakouts and help prevent further breakouts. 

Retinol for large pores:

A pore is an opening at the surface of your skin that allows body hair and oils to pass through. When these pores become clogged with dead skin cells or oil, your pores become bigger and more noticeable. Topical retinol treats large pores by increasing skin cell turnover that makes your skin thicker and prevents the development of clogged pores.
