The skin care market is flooded with a number of anti-wrinkle face creams, but none as good as FDA-approved, prescription Renova Tretinoin cream. Renova is the first prescription cream proven to reduce certain clinical signs of photodamage, which is the name for skin damage resulting from chronic exposure to the sun and the natural aging process.
There are two types of UV rays, UVA and UVB. UVA rays penetrate the skin and are the leading cause of premature aging and skin cancer. UVB rays primarily impact the surface of the skin and mainly cause sunburn, but also contribute to skin cancer. Renova Tretinoin cream uses Tretinoin, a Vitamin A derivative, to address some of the sun’s damaging effects, diminishing fine wrinkles (including “crow’s feet”) and making skin softer and healthier-looking. However, Renova does not completely eliminate the signs of aging, nor will it reverse the aging process or completely repair sun-damaged skin.
Eight Myths and Facts about Wrinkles, the Sun, Skin Care and Aging
Myth #1: Aging causes wrinkles and there’s nothing you can do about it.
Fact: Aging does indeed contribute to crow’s feet and laugh lines, but sun exposure is the number one cause of wrinkles. As we age, skin loses its resilience and wrinkles result, and this is exacerbated by damage from sun exposure. Wearing a sunscreen or moisturizer with an SPF of 15 or greater every day can help reduce sun damage and prevent more wrinkles.
Myth #2: Facial exercises will make wrinkles go away.
Fact: There is no conclusive evidence to show that facial exercises help get rid of wrinkles.
Myth #3: Dry skin causes wrinkles.
Fact: Dry skin can make your wrinkles and fine lines more evident, but it doesn’t cause them. Sun exposure and aging are the two main reasons for wrinkles.
Myth #4: You don’t need to use sunscreen if you aren’t going to be outside.
Fact: Walking to your car, driving to work, or simply sitting near a window, you are exposed to harmful UV rays. In other words, silly as it seems to wear sunscreen in the house or on the way to work, you’re still being exposed to UV rays, sometimes as much as you would be if you spent a day actually lying in the sun.
Myth #5: If you don’t see sun damage, you don’t have any.
Fact: The signs of sun damage are not always obvious. Sun damage, or photodamage, is cumulative and can worsen over time. The days you spent in the sun without sunscreen as a kid can come back to haunt you in the form of fine lines, skin roughness, age spots, and, worse case scenario, skin cancer.
Myth #6: A tan is healthy.
Fact: A tan is evidence that UV rays have damaged some of your skin’s cells. There’s nothing healthy about damage.
Myth #7: A base tan will protect you from the sun when you go sunbathing.
Fact: A base tan does offer some protection from UV rays, but it damages skin in the process of getting it to begin with, and the idea isn’t completely effective anyway. In other words, it’s a myth.
Myth #8: If you didn’t wear sunscreen as a child, you can’t do anything about it now.
Fact: You can’t change the past, but it’s always a good idea to protect your skin from more sun damage if you can. It’s estimated that 80% of sun damage happens to people during their teenage years, but that doesn’t mean you should make it worse it by not taking care of your skin today. Wearing sunscreen or moisturizer with an SPF of 15 or higher every day, all year round, is always a good idea.
