Readers Ask: Dear Lucky About Anti-Aging Products

Q: So, I just turned 25 and still have no wrinkles (phew!), but I want to do the best thing for my face to prevent aging. I already wear SPF every day, but I never know what kind of face creams to buy specifically for antiaging. Should I be wearing anti-wrinkle cream, or will wearing it too soon make my skin immune to it in the future?

A: If you have no acne and no wrinkles, I say live it up and enjoy your moment of perfection! Especially since you’re wearing sunscreen, which has moisture in it (along with the most critical antiager there is, SPF). Applied at night, Retin-A (a prescription cream available in many different strengths, all of which require a trip to the doctor) does help stave off wrinkles and other forms of skin damage, so if you’re super gung ho (and really using sunscreen, as Retin-A does make your skin more sensitive), give it a whirl. Though since you have no wrinkles, you won’t be able to tell if it’s working! The other thing you might like is some sort of antioxidant serum—particularly one with vitamin C, which has a noticeable clarifying/brightening effect on the skin. (Vitamin C works day and/or night, btw. And it has a bonus sun-protective effect.) Whatever you do, the most important thing is to keep going with the sunscreen. And definitely put it on the backs of your hands whenever you put it on your face—take it from a claw-handed oldster.
