HA wont treat wrinkles. I would recommend using OTC retinol or prescribed tretinol, in combination botox if you are up for it

I like The Ordinary but you’re probably better off with a retinoid or something else for wrinkles - hyaluronic acid is more for moisture

Yeah get a retinoid and a good vitamin C serum. I had prescription retin-A but the Skinceuticals OTC on is good. It’s pricey but worth it. I also use the BeatyStat vitamin C. Again pricey but you can’t cheap out on vitamin C. I also get Botox because I’m a super expressive person and needed something else to help me. Everyone’s situation and preference is different!

Thanks everyone for your help! I’ve been using the CeraVe retinol for about a month and haven’t seen much progress, which is why I was looking into also using HA. I think I need to use the retinol for more than a month to see any results. Thanks!

How often do you use retinol? Every other night, every night, etc.? You can increase the frequency if it does not irritate your skin, or look for something with stronger dose.

Elta MD sunscreen is the best I’ve found.

I use drunk elephant for hyalyronic acid, recommended by a Sephora store associate. For sunscreen, I like biore aqua rich or super hoop serum. I used to use la roche posay serum also. There are some sunscreen moisturizers that I also use on dryer days from the same brands.

I love tretinoin and have every intention of using it for years, but it’s not a quick fix. Think like... 6 months to notice a difference and even longer to really see what it can do. I think most retinols are like this, which may be why you haven’t seen results from the cerave. I like purito comfy water sunblock, it’s SPF 50 PA++++ and leaves no cast on my medium tan skin tone. I think it’s ~$15

ELTA MD for sunscreen pricey but worth it

Clarins UV Plus tinted, for sunscreen. It is the lightest weight sunscreen I’ve ever found. Not sticky at all — and the added tint makes it the only thing I’ll throw on for around the house / running errands to feel a tad put together. Dermalogica also has a good nighttime retinol (I’ve interchanged with skinceuticals). Generally, I’ve noticed a huge difference in my skin with Clarins double serum, M-61 vitamin C in the AM, retinol + Clarins firming night cream PM, and Clarins has this AMAZING mask (it’s purple container) that I’ll put on for 10 min in the AM and I swear my face looks flawless the rest of the day. An older co-worker swears it’s drastically improved her neck overtime as well.

I feel momentarily defeated. I wish my parents were more encouraging. I’m in the process of buying my first home, which feels overwhelming and incredibly lonely as I’m going through this without their guidance or support. I felt so hopeful and excited to share with them that I was preapproved by a lender (an important step). My mother seemed annoyed and my father immediately began rattling off every possible thing that can go wrong. He critiqued the home, the cost, down payment, you name it.

Trump’s efforts to suppress COVID19 info and rush our untested vaccines continues. His and Putin’s lackey, Caputo is now accusing CDC scientists of sedition. We need dump Trump on Nov 3, for the sake of our country. Folks who are not aware of Caputo - he actually worked for Putin as his PR consultant in Russia in early 2000s. Now his job is to sabotage the information coming out of CDC. Officially we have ~195k confirmed deaths but the number of excess deaths is over 250k (per Economist & NYT)
