How does retinol remove wrinkles? Retinol has been used for treating acne, blackheads, and making sure your pores are staying unclogged. Decades of research by dermatologists has uncovered retinol has major anti-aging benefits as well as fighting acne. Retinol will boost the collagen in your face, decreasing fine lines and improving function of your skin’s turnover rate! Retinol is also known as Vitamin A! This is why I picked Paprika for an anti wrinkle mask!
