Renova/Retin-A for wrinkles

Posted by

I just purchased a tube of Renova to try to get rid of fine lines and crepe-paper like skin on my face. I am in my early thirties and even though I used to go to tanning beds, I would always cover my face. Still, the lines are there and they really bother me. Other than that, I look young for my age and would like to halt the process as much as possible. Question, is there any harm in using the Renova? Also, what about that new light therapy which is supposedly painless, unlike laser resurfacing? I think it is called N'Lite or Cool Touch or something. Will the Renova really make my skin better? Also, will using sunscreen and good moisturizers really reverse some of these wrinkles like some people say? Can aging really repair itself? I don't smoke (never have) and don't drink alcohol. I do drink coffee every day, but also lots of water, I try to shield my face from sun. But, I work in a bar and the second hand smoke can't be good. Any suggestions? I want skin like Demi Moore when I am 40!!!

Hi, Faith.

The second most common cause of skin wrinkling is smoking. Since non-smokers in the same room as smokers have 5/6th of the amount of nicotine in their urine as the smokers......

In the meantime, while you are finding a job that does not expose you to smoke, the best thing for you is to use antioxident face creams (vitamins C & E).

Serious wellness will also help retard wrinkling.

Thank you so much for your reply. I have noticed that after working two days straight, I end up sleeping in excess of 10-12 hours (sometimes more!) immediately following coming home from work. When I awake, I feel awful. I think smoking in public ought to be illegal. Will my skin start to repair itself when I get out of the smoky environment for good? I used anti-oxidant cremes now along with the Retin-A. It seems to be helping already. I have also pared my schedule down to only three nights per week. Only two of those is the smoke stifling. Actually, its terrible. Sometimes I need to leave the room in order to be able to take a deep breath. Are we any closer to outlawing smoking in public? Being around a smoker causes me to have homicidal urges. It is just so inconsiderate and obnoxious, and it is everywhere you go. Thanks for listening. Any more ideas about actually REPAIRING wrinkles?

Hi, Faith.

Mother Nature does the repair. The antioxident creams only give her a leg up.
