By now, I’m sure you ALL know the number-one rule for healthy skin that looks as young as possible: daily sunscreen. But did you know that regular use of a vitamin A derivative—assuming your skin is not super sensitive and can comfortably tolerate it—is not too far behind? Seldom are skin care ingredients proven time and time again to be effective at creating change and improvement, but vitamin A in all its anti-aging forms—retinol, Retin-A, etc—is. NOTHING not involving scalpels, needles or lasers that comes in a tube will actually reduce the look of the wrinkles you experience as you age quite like these wonder ingredients. Most dermatologists and estheticians will emphatically confirm this truth, too.
If you’ve never tried any kind of anti-aging product containing retinol, you are in luck, as this season’s Beautyfix kit features a travel-size version of SkinMedica’s Tri-Retinol Complex, which is, in my opinion, one of the best non-prescription retinoids out there. Used a couple times a week, ever other night, or even every night depending on how your skin handles it, this formulation speeds up cell regeneration, a vital process that slows with age. The result? Simply put, better skin. Commit to using this regularly and over time you will notice fewer wrinkles, fewer spots, an improvement in texture and an increase in firmness.
