Infographic: How Retinol Really Works

June 9, 2014

Lotions or creams that contain a retinoid are your best shot at making your skin look younger. Research proves that this vitamin A derivative really can undo wrinkles and discoloration caused by sun damage. At the drugstore, look for the word "retinol" in the ingredients list. Better yet a dermatologist can prescribe a stronger retinoid cream which provides you with a known concentration of medicinal ingredient, like Retin-A, Tazorac or generic Tretinoin. Retinoids can be irritating at first, so ramp up slowly until you can tolerate using one every night. You should apply a retinoid cream on your neck as well, but because that skin can be more sensitive, use it more sparingly and not necessarily nightly.
