    Think you're too young to use retinol? This vitamin-A-derived skin superstar is for far more than just anti-aging. The ingredient increases cell turnover, meaning that your skin will be smoother, clearer, more even, and have fewer breakouts if you use a product containing retinol every night (or every other night, depending on the sensitivity level of your skin).

    The best part? Retinol, as opposed to more-concentrated retinoids, are prescription-free, so there is a host of over-the-counter formulas that you can use without a visit to the dermatologist.
