Why Your Skin Needs It
If you’re looking to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and give your skin a youthful radiance, then retinol should be in your routine. This pure form of vitamin A helps slow down your skin’s natural aging process, as well as rebuild collagen and elastin, two essential structures that help keep your skin smooth and firm. By using retinol serums and skincare products, you accelerates your skins cell turnover, revealing an overall smoother and brighter glow.

The Clinique Expertise
Retinol products may cause peeling, redness, or dryness in the first weeks of use—a sign that it’s transforming your skin. Clinique Fresh Pressed™ Overnight Booster with Pure Vitamin A (Retinol) combines retinol with a soothing anti-aging serum to minimize irritation. Also, vitamin A is most powerful when fresh, which is why we package our vitamin A serums in an air-tight, light-proof vial that keeps it at peak potency until you’re ready to use it.

What Our Clinique Derm Says
“Retinol is an essential part of any anti-aging skin care regimen, because it makes your skin look smoother and reduces the look of wrinkles,” says Dr. Emma Wedgeworth, a board-certified dermatologist based in London.
