product: roc retinol correxion deep wrinkle night cream $23
uses: massage into face, neck, and décolletage to visibly reduce the appearance of wrinkles
verdict: this product is supposed to be one of the best non-prescription retinol products available. while i’m not able to reap all the benefits of this product (i am only 28, after all), the wrinkles i do have–i’m looking at you, forehead creases–i noticed slight improvement. beware though: retinol can be very irritating on skin–luckily they have a version for sensitive skin available! 3 out of 5
beauty tip: be proactive! women should begin incorporating anti-aging ingredients such as retinol in their beauty regimen in their mid-20’s. skin experts believe this can delay signs of aging. i began using retinol, the “best” wrinkle-fighter, 2 nights a week when i was 25. over the years i increased my usage & now i use some form of anti-ager 3-4 nights a week. like i mentioned earlier, some of these chemicals can be harsh so i like to give my skin a breather by interchanging pure vitamin e, argan, or coconut oil with the man-made wrinkle-fighters.
