The ABCs of Anti-Aging
Everything you need to know about fighting wrinkles, saggy skin, dark spots and other signs of aging
There are no magic bullets in anti-aging, but if you're looking for the oldest, most trusted and heavily researched anti-aging ingredient in skin care, you can find it in retinol. Retinol is basically any vitamin A derivative found in skin care products, and helps you shed dead skin cells more rapidly. Dr. Lancer recommends using retinol in varying intensities depending on your age and need, but warns that you should only apply at night as it makes your skin extra sensitive to sunlight. After age 40, it's generally safe to work up to using retinol up to four days a week.
