Retinol For Men: What to Know and What to Buy

For any human beyond college age, retinol is your best friend. It’s basically a vitamin A derivative that was sort of stumbled over by scientists working to develop a product to fight severe acne. The researchers knew a good thing when they found it, and now it’s been developed into a product that actually helps reverse wrinkles. It also smooths out the skin’s texture, diminishes acne scarring, and lightens hyper-pigmentation. In short, it’s a powerful tool for preventing and reversing skin damage.

An important note of caution: using a retinol product regularly may result in dryness, redness, and sun sensitivity because it brings fresher, newer skin to the surface. The dryness and redness typically go away over time, but the ongoing vulnerability means a daily sunscreen is a must. If you don’t wear it, you may actually make your skin more sensitive to environmental stressors that cause aging and end up worse than when you started.

The other painful part of all this? Retinol products are not priced for the faint of heart. We’re not talking about not making the car payment or forgoing Christmas this year, but it might mean skipping a dinner out or buying a cheaper bottle wine. On the other hand, we did dig in to find at least one product that doesn’t break the bank and several that have some more specific applications to address your personal problem areas.
