If you struggle with the appearance of aging skin on the body, you might want to incorporate a retinol moisturizer, cream or serum into your skincare routine. Retinol is a powerhouse ingredient that has been known to soften skin, and make it appear smoother and firmer. Ahead, we share our favorite retinol formulated products designed for your body, proving its benefits extend well beyond your face. 

Just remember that retinol can make your skin more photo-sensitive and should always be used with sun protection.  A little goes a long way, so introduce any of these products gradually at first; decrease use if you experience redness or dryness; and stop use and consult your doctor if you experience severe irritation.  You should also avoid the eye area, lips, and broken or irritated skin.

To improve the look of key signs of aging such as wrinkles and uneven skin texture, it is formulated with retinol, plus niacinamide for a healthy-looking complexion. It is deeply moisturizing yet lightweight.
