Retinoids(prescription strength) are shockingkly harsh on the skin. I know. I tried a .5% cream for some fine lines appearing around my eyes and man o man, my face turned beet read and irritated beyond belief. I had to quit after about a week. I simply couldn't stand it any more. It was like having a bad case of poison Ivy around my eyes. It was that raw and swollen.

If they are not so potent on strength that they burn your face.

Thanks for the information. I agree with Kath-- it makes no sense to airbrush all the wrinkles out of a model such as Diane Keaton or Andie McDowell when they are trying to sell a wrinkle cream. We have all earned our wrinkles, some more than others.

Use a good sun block as the sun ages the skin
