Retinol

I would like to introduce retinol but I don’t know what product i have to choose. My main concern is acne and the hyperpigmentation that left me even if i don’t touch it

I would recommend The Ordinary retinol in squalane. They have a range of percentages so you can start low and once you finish the bottle you can move on to the next higher one. Also it is very affordable 😊

I started with this one and experienced no issues. Honestly saw the most improvements when I got a script for Tretinoin. I regret not going straight to the doctor.
