The Ordinary Advanced Retinoid 2%

In the past I have enjoyed the results from using Vitamin A topical creams, they are great for improving skin tone and texture. When I used a Vitamin A cream before I only every got them in a prescription from seeing a dermatologist. I was always weary of purchasing any kind of retinoid or retinol cream outside of a pharmacy, because firstly they can be quite costly and secondly, I was always quite dubious of their ingredient lists and the concentration of Vitamin A they contained. Thanks to Deciem, because they have made Vitamin A way more affordable and accessible to all.

How do you know if a retinoid is for you?

I am using a retinoid to help even out my skin tone and aid in preventing blemishes. When applied to skin retinoids can unclog pores, increase the making of collagen, fades age spots and overall make the skin appear more youthful. Retinoids have been an anti-ageing must have since they were first approved for use by the FDA in the 70s.  I love this formula so far, it is a liquid and spreads easily on the skin. I have not experienced any irritation since I began using it.

You are meant to apply to dry skin after cleansing and before any creams. Below is how I’ve incorporated this into my nighttime skincare routine.
