“My patients are always looking for anti-aging solutions but are often confused by all the choices out there. I always suggest a retinol based product because it’s clinically proven to be one of the most effective anti-aging ingredients in the market today, because it decreases the signs of aging,” said Dr. Will Kirby. “Retinol is a trusted anti-aging powerhouse ingredient that has long been a favorite of dermatologists and my personal go-to when advising my patients on what products to buy.”

While winter skin care may be all about fighting dry skin, when transitioning into summer, regular treatment and daily sun protection are key to uncovering noticeably younger-looking skin. Follow Dr. Kirby’s three simple tips to achieve healthy, younger-looking skin all season long:

  1. Choose power-packed ingredients – The two must-have ingredients for an effective, but simple, anti-aging routine are stabilized retinol and broad spectrum sunscreen with Helioplex. As sun damage is one of the major causes of wrinkles and premature aging, daily sun protection is critical.
  2. Pick a superior formula for superior results – Although retinol is the gold standard of anti-aging, not all formulations with retinol are created equal. Many retinols break down in formulation due to exposure to light and air, so it is very important to look for a stabilized form of retinol. Neutrogena’s® patented process of stabilizing retinol keeps it in its most effective form to deliver superior visible skin benefits.
  3. Apply easily – Exfoliation not only sheds dull winter skin, but also provides a smoother canvas for makeup or self tanner. Apply a product such as Neutrogena®( )Dermatologics(TM) Retinol NX Concentrated Retinol Serum, to help increase surface cell turnover while moisturizing emollients smooth skin for younger-looking skin. There’s no need to add an extra step to your busy summer schedules!
