Lotions with retinol diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while preventing new ones from developing. Among the recommended lotions are Neutrogena Dermatologics Retinol NX Serum and RoC Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Night Cream. Both are available online and at major retailers.

Physicians Formula Deep Wrinkle Corrector Day & Night Cream is a favorite among dermatologists for its alpha hydroxy acids, which help the skin renew more easily. Garnier Skin Renew Daily Moisture Lotion contains an SPF 28 sunscreen, and also fades dark areas of the skin. Aveeno Ultra-Calming Daily Moisturizer reduces redness from acne and sunburn and contains SPF 15.

Another doctors’ favorite is Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration Night Cream with olive oil and clarly sage. Olay Professional Pro-X Even Skin Tone Brightening Renewal Cream is a three-step kit that helps brighten and moisturize with a combination of ingredients. Lubriderm Daily Moisture Moisturizing Lotion holds in hydration for up to 24 hours, contains vitamin B5 and glycerin and is affordable.
