Creases across your forehead, crinkles around your eyes, fine lines above your lips… it might sound scary, but there’s nothing wrong with a few wrinkles on your face. After all, it happens to the best of us, and a few lines can look good and add character to your face. That being said, most of us would prefer to keep our skin wrinkle-free for as long as possible. What is one particular solution out there? Retinol face serum. Find out everything you need to know about retinol serum benefits with our helpful guide. We’ll also give you a full and frank introduction to L’Oréal Pure Retinol Night Serum, one of L’Oréal Paris’ most potent serums yet.
What causes face wrinkles?
One of the most common factors to bring about wrinkles (through natural effect) is ageing. The amount of collagen your body produces slows down over time, which causes your skin to lose elasticity, leading to wrinkles on the face. This process can be exacerbated by a couple of other factors, including pollution, exposure to the sun and UV rays, and lifestyle (i.e., lack of exercise, drinking, and stress). Furthermore, your skin is likely to dry out and get thinner as the years draw on, which can make you more prone to wrinkles.
Wondering how to reduce wrinkles? You’re not the only one! To a certain extent, the way your skin ages over time comes down to genetics (i.e., intrinsic ageing). Having said that, there are plenty of steps you can take to prevent the formation of more and deep-set wrinkles. Preventative and reductive measures include changing your diet (vitamin-rich food is a plus), kicking your smoking habit, and protecting yourself from the sun. However, we’re going to focus on one particular anti-ageing ingredient: retinol serum.
What is retinol serum?
Glad you asked! Retinol is a form of vitamin A with natural, anti-ageing properties. So, what does retinol do for your skin? Essentially, it helps stimulate your body’s collagen production and speed up skin cell turnover, helping to make your skin look visibly younger and reduce the visible appearance of pores and dark spots. Bottom line: retinol serum can help to make wrinkles on the face and fine lines less noticeable. Now that you know a little more about retinol serum benefits, let’s explore L’Oréal’s very own retinol face serum.

This retinol serum contains a trio of naturally sourced ingredients, providing maximum comfort and efficacy for anyone who wants to do all they can to keep wrinkles at bay. So, if you find yourself wondering how to reduce wrinkles on a regular basis, L’Oréal’s retinol serum might be exactly what you’re looking for.
How to apply retinol: our step by step guide
When you’re using a retinol face serum, it’s super-important to have a routine. It’s also a good idea to start using L’Oréal’s retinol serum a couple of nights a week, before you move onto daily application. Wondering how to apply retinol in the first place? No worries, here’s our simple guide:
1. First, cleanse your skin to get rid of all the impurities (makeup, oil, dirt, etc.) so that you can enjoy maximum retinol serum benefits.
2. Once your skin is clean and dry, you should apply 3-4 drops of L’Oréal Pure Retinol Night Serum to your face.
3. Then, the morning after you use the serum, be sure to use a moisturiser (minimum SPF 20), because retinol is likely to make your skin a little more sensitive to sunlight.
So, there you have it. What does retinol do for your skin? Quite a bit, as it turns out! Check out the benefits of L’Oréal’s retinol face serum for yourself!
