Is This the Best Cream for Wrinkles Ever?

Yep! Retin-A or Tretinoin as it’s also known, really is the very best anti-aging cream for wrinkles and fine lines out there. That’s probably why it’s not an over the counter medication in the UK.

Okay, so using retin-a is not for the faint of heart or the giver upperers amongst us. It’s mega strong but with the irritation, redness, soreness, peeling and super-dry skin, comes the most amazing anti-aging effects known to man without invasive cosmetic treatment or a facelift!

Tretinoin Works on Forehead Wrinkles Too

My problem area was always my forehead. I mean, no-one else seemed to think they were an issue, but I didn’t like them. To be honest with you, they have probably been there forever as they are genetic. I just started disliking them when I turned 40. I’m not sure I’d ever paid any attention to them before that. I wasn’t too bothered about skin-care in general. Since using retin-a I have no issue with those lines on my head at all. I used to have botox but don’t feel the need for it anymore. This fantastic cream for wrinkles has cured my lines! Well that’s an exaggeration of course, but it has made a significant difference to them but it’s a long term commitment and not a quick fix. I think this is where people get disheartened. There is so much hype around tretinoin and it’s easy to get caught up in it. I wouldn’t say don’t believe the hype, but don’t expect to see a dramatic difference, more a subtle but noticeable change over a long time.

How to Use Retin-A to Reduce Wrinkles

I have been using it for 18 months and at the six month point I began to look for ways to reduce the dryness as I have dry skin anyway and retin-a was making it even drier.

A Simple Solution to Peeling and Dry Skin

  • Squalene oil applied to clean dry skin
  • Retin-A mixed with a little hydrating moisturiser
  • Leave it to dry
  • Lots of Nivea before bed

This really is a quick and easy fix for the retin-a uglies
