Dr. Brandt Introduces New Wrinkle Serums Packed With Retinol
The magic of retinol.
Ever wonder why many skin care companies feature this key wrinkle-fighting ingredient?
It's rather simple. Retinol helps the skin generate new cells and produce more collagen. The old cells come up to the surface and exfoliate, leaving behind a more radiant complexion.
And of course, you don't need a prescription for retinol, which is related to its expensive Rx cousin Retin-A. But both do a very good job of maintaining healthy, younger-looking skin because of their Vitamin A derivatives.
When searching for a retinol skin care product, you want to pick one that packs a retinol punch. And celebrity dermatologist Frederic Brandt has introduced a new wrinkle-fighting duo, with a night serum containing the highest level of retinol available over-the-counter.
Glow by Dr. Brandt....Ruby Crystal Retinol Hydracreme ($65, at Dr. Brandt Skin Care. The nourishing formula has unique light-reflecting particles that help minimize fine lines and wrinkles, giving off a nice sheen to the complexion.
Glow by Dr. Brandt....Overnight Resurfacing Serum ($85, at Dr. Brandt Skin Care. A whopping 2% active retinol time-release complex is featured. That's pretty big--compared to a 1% retinol formula we thought was the most potent. And this serum delivers better tone and texture and younger-looking skin.
If this is too steep of a beauty investment for you, the company also offers Dr. Brandt Glow by Dr. Brandt Introductory Kit for $65.
