Are you concerned with wrinkle prevention not repair?
Celebrity facialist Tracie Martyn recommends a light moisturizer that contains active ingredients like hyaluronic acid.Are you starting to see fine lines?
“It’s important to promote collagen repair,” says Martyn, who advises uses moisturizers with strong antioxidants when those first tiny creases start to appear.
Are you losing elasticity? Do you notice drooping skin?
Choose products with increased levels of collagen and elastin like St. Ives Collagen Elastin Facial Moisturizer ($5; drugstore.com
