A new way to get your daily dose of retinol
There’s no disputing that retinol is one of the most studied, proven and dermatologist-recommended anti-aging ingredients. We should all be using collagen-supporting ingredient nightly (since it degrades quickly upon exposure to UV light—but there’s a new way to get even more without the deactivating effects of the sun… And it tastes really good, too.
Dirty Lemon has upped the “functional beverage” category as of late, with options to complement your fitness, immunity, skin hydration, focus, sleep and anti-aging goals—and the newest addition, +retinol, features the first-ever ingestible retinol to boost your quest for ever-youthful skin.
With ingredients that include organic lemon juice, pineapple, ginger puree, pomegranate, black cherry, acerola, hibiscus and two forms of retinol, this tangy, 15-calorie, antioxidant-rich treat is designed to reduce fine lines, increase skin elasticity and quell inflammation and redness simply by downing one bottle a day.
I haven’t seen a major difference (which would be difficult considering all the other anti-aging products and treatments I subject my skin to), but I’ve been enjoying a bottle in lieu of my second iced coffee each morning, which definitely can’t hurt considering I’m getting 100% of my recommended daily vitamin A and 150% of my vitamin C. Bottoms up!
