When I meet another 40 year old for the first time, in 3 seconds I know 3 things:
(1) if they smoke
(2) if the really wear GOOD sunscreen
(3) if they use Retin-a cream at night
My first day as a dermatology resident I was 27. I have used Retin-a cream every night since then ( except for my 4 pregnancies) because it really is the most preventative anti-aging cream available. The trick is to find one that you can use every night without getting dry, red or irritated. We can help you with that! Prescription versions are for acne prone patients or very oily skin. If you don’t do these 3 things I will have to work much harder to keep you looking younger (aka more expensive).
