How to Pick the Best Retinol Cream for You, According to a Dermatologist

Question: I read this blog "How to Pick the Best Retinol Cream for You, According to a Dermatologist", and I have a question. None of these products, when you click on the details are for your back of hands or arms. I am 70 years old and I have thinning skin, that cuts and bruises very easy. I am looking for a product with Retinol in it to help regenerate collagen. Also I notice none of these products have over 1% retinol in it. Will any of these products help with my issue or do I need to get a stronger % of Retinol with a prescription. Thanks, Ray
Answer:

Thank you for reaching out to us. I would recommend the brand La Roche Posay, their Lipikar Balm AP+ Body Cream for Extra Dry Skin, this protect will protect your skin barrier as well as being very hydrating. You can use a retinol on your hands and if you do need a higher concentration of Retinol you will need to get a prescription. I hope this helps, have a nice day! Cyndee, Dermstore Esthetician
