Top 10 Best Retinol in Singapore

The 10 Retinol for All Skin Types

Generally, retinol is a high standard ingredient in skin care category. This is because it improves the behaviors of aged cells so that they can provide more in youthful manner. It even refines and smooths texture of skin surface, treats aging, and enhances skin radiance. Retinoids reduce fine lines and wrinkles by increasing the production of collagen. They also stimulate the production of new blood vessels in the skin, which improves skin color. Additional benefits include fading age spots and softening rough patches of skin. Use retinol once or twice a week to begin with to see if your skin reacts, and gradually work up to every other day or three times a week. Another key tip for using retinol is to incorporate it into your night skincare routine only, as it makes your skin more sensitive to sunlight. The Tropika Club team has rounded up Top 10 Retinol Creams in Singapore. Read on!

2. Wellaholic Retinol Serum

Description: Wellaholic’s retinol serum contains 100% concentration of retinyl palmitate. After its absorption into the skin, retinyl palmitate is converted to retinol, and ultimately to retinoic acid. Retinyl palmitate is a gentler, milder form of vitamin a, and has numerous benefits to the skin.

Retinoids works at a much more profound level by affecting gene expression and causing enhanced collagen production, skin smoothing, and evening out of pigmentation. Retinol helps to soothe inflammation, removes dead skin cells, and has assisted in making pores appear smaller – leading to a clearer complexion and younger-looking skin. 

How to Use:

  • At night, apply a pea-size amount or less to clean, dry face, avoiding the eye area.
