Retinol vs. Rosehip Oil and Sea Buckthorn
The chemical ingredient: Retinol
Explanation: "Retinol (or vitamin A) helps to smooth skin and reduce the appearance of acne scarring and wrinkles."
The natural option: Rosehip oil and sea buckthorn
Why it works: "Oils rich in vitamin A provide the same skin-smoothing effects as retinol, but don't cause the drying, irritation, and sun sensitivity that can come with synthetic forms."
