5 of the Best Drugstore Products to Fight Wrinkles
This serum tackles crow's feet, fine lines, and wrinkles thanks to the retinol-infused formula. "You'll start to see them start to soften in about week," says Debra Jaliman, M.D., a dermatologist, and author of Skin Rules ($11, Amazon). "This serum also contains hyaluronic acid, which helps prevent the dryness caused by other products that contain retinol."
Deeply cleansing your face is not only imperative for removing makeup, impurities, and dead cells but also for helping your wrinkle-fighting serums and creams penetrate the skin, improving their effectiveness. This dermatologist-designed, anti-aging cleansing brush has two speeds and ensures a thorough cleaning. To use: Wet your face, apply a cleanser, use the brush for just 60 seconds, rinse, and dry for smooth, refreshed skin.
Ask any dermatologist, and they’ll tell you that the real fountain of youth is in a bottle of sunscreen. This lightweight option is fast-absorbing and safe for all skin types. Plus, "wearing sunblock rain or shine decreases your incidence of skin cancer, and you’ll have fewer sunspots, fine lines, and moles," says Jeanine Downie, a dermatologist for Image Dermatology P.C. in Montclair, New Jersey.
Good ingredients are what make a drugstore product powerful, says Ranella Hirsch, M.D., a Cambridge, Massachusetts, dermatologist. Hyaluronic acid, a potent moisturizer that is absorbed easily by the skin, and lipohydroxy acid, a gentle exfoliating ingredient, team up in this serum to stimulate collagen, smooth wrinkles, and plump skin.
