Retinol thins the skin:

This is a common myth, but it is not accurate. Retinol does not thin the skin. In fact, it can help improve skin thickness by promoting collagen production, which leads to firmer, more youthful-looking skin.

Retinol is only for mature skin:

Retinol is often associated with anti-aging benefits, but it can be beneficial for people of various ages. It can help with skin concerns like acne, uneven texture, and hyperpigmentation. However, the concentration and formulation of retinol products may differ depending on the specific needs of different age groups.

Retinol makes the skin sensitive to the sun all the time:

While it is true that retinol can increase skin sensitivity to the sun, this effect is primarily temporary and occurs when using retinol during the daytime. Applying retinol-based products at night and using sunscreen during the day can help minimize any potential sun sensitivity.

All retinol products are the same:

Retinol products can vary in strength, formulation, and quality. It’s important to choose a retinol product that suits your skin type and concerns. Higher concentrations of retinol may require a gradual introduction to avoid irritation, and some formulations may be better suited for sensitive skin. We are here to help!!

Retinol is only available as a prescription:

While prescription-strength retinoids like tretinoin are available, there are also many over-the-counter retinol products that can be just as effective. Our favorite is Radical Night Repair by ZO Skin Health.
