“Tell me the product that gets rid of wrinkles!” People ask me this question fully confident there is an
answer. That there’s a jar of something that maybe
costs a little but you get it and you slap it on and—voilà—23 forever. I love the optimism of such a worldview, and I hate to be the heavy that says, “Yes, they keep that product right up there on the shelf with the eternal-life pills and the stack of winning lottery tickets.” I follow up with my advice, which is See a Dermatologist. So you can get Retin-A. (You might even go for some Botox! If it’s wrinkles that are bothering you! Hello!) Retin-A seriously improves not just wrinkles but acne and it also evens, smooths and clarifies. But people (by people I mean my relatives,
my friends and all the inquisitive strangers in Christendom) refuse to see a dermatologist. They refuse.
This skin-perfecting retinol (retinol is weaker than Retin-A but has similar effects) duo—which comes from an actual dermatologist (in fact, the dermatologist that makes every one of those celebs you think does nothing look miraculously, “naturally” fantastic)—takes over-the-counter measures to a new level. The retinol is time-released to minimize irritation, and it’s augmented with a pile of antioxidants and peptides for the necessary glowifying. There’s a night and a day, and they come in cute pump packages in an adorable kit. Your skin will be noticeably better. So much better that you might—might—even consider a (gasp!) visit to the dermatologist.
