Heard of retinols in skincare but not sure what they are? Favoured by dermatologists to refine the skin’s texture and reduce fine lines and pigmentation, they’re a synthetic version of vitamin A. In high concentrations, they can be strong and irritating, but luckily natural versions exist. ‘Rosehip and cacay-seed oils contain natural vitamin A, which can be gentler on the skin but still amazing as an anti-ageing ingredient to firm and soften,’ says Sophie Thompson, founder of Sister & Co. Skin Food. Try: Jurlique Purely Age-Defying Firming Face Oil (£38 for 50ml; jurlique.co.uk) with natural marine retinol from rock samphire; or Sister & Co. Super Seed Facial Formula (£30 for 30ml; sisterandcompany.com) with Amazonian cacay-seed oil. Better skin, more naturally.
