“Consider glycolic acid the MVP of this regimen. In a cleanser or moisturizer it will help remove dead skin and speed cell turnover, so skin looks less wrinkled over time…During the day, a vitamin C serum can increase the production of skin-firming collagen, and then a moisturizing sunscreen to protect from cell-damaging free radicals caused by the sun. At night: a retinol lotion – spiked with hydrating hyaluronic acid and firming peptides – to (gently!) stimulate collagen.” (p.104)
In the morning try Murad Advanced Active Radiance Serum or Kinerase Advanced Lotion.
At night try Peter Thomas Roth Anti-Aging Cleansing Gel or Nia 24 Intensive Retinol Repair.
