What age should I start using retinol?

I've heard people say it's never too early to start anti aging products but some also say retinol should only be used after 20s? What age is the best to start using retinol?

I started using it in my early 20s. That’s a good time to start it. it’s also good for acne not just anti aging. You can start it before you turn 30.

Whenever you start using it, start with a lower concentration and introduce it slowly to see how your skin reacts.

Depending on your skin needs, 20's is the perfect time to gradually incorporate retinol in your routine.
