Well+Good ask Dr. Green “Can people with eczema use retinol?” in an article today. She is quoted various times in the piece and notes that “Retinoids are a derivative of vitamin A and have been known to treat acne by preventing dead cells from clogging pores, this reduces the chance for bacterial accumulation and therefore, clears acne and reduces future breakouts. Retinoids also boost cell turnover, fight free radicals, and increase collagen growth, which prevents aging and improves our skin’s overall appearance.”
