10 brands with wrinkle-busting retinols

When it comes to reversing the signs of ageing, retinol, a form of vitamin A, is known as the industry's gold standard ingredient. It has the power to help accelerate skin renewal and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and age spots for firmer, smoother and more evenly-toned skin.
