Fruit Acids vs Retinol

Reducing the effects of aging on your skin requires a combination of ingredients including broad spectrum sunscreens, exfoliants, antioxidants, emollients, and cell communicating ingredients. Vitamin A derivatives such as tretinoin and retinol are widely recommended by skin care professionals for their ability to help reverse sun damage, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, boost collagen production and increase skin cell turnover.
