Dermatologists swear by Vitamin A for reducing the visible signs of wrinkles. While I love my Retin-A, it is a prescription formula and not everyone can afford the hefty pricetag or the trip to Mexico to get it over-the-counter. These days, there are many great over-the-counter retinol products. I've done the research and found the ones that are proven to be effective.
This basic, over-the-counter cream has Alpha Hydroxy, Retinol, and Vitamin C to counteract the dryness that can occur with age. The retinol helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles over time while the Vitamin C helps protect skin from the sun. This rich moisturizer hydrates skin and restores elasticity. You can also monitor progress with Pond’s Proof Strips, which are included in the package. Take an impression of your fine lines and wrinkles before first use and every four weeks during use.
