A Wrinkle-Fighting Formula For Combination Skin
By Marci Robin |
The richness of many wrinkle-fighting creams can scare off those of us with combination skin. After all, who wants to trade lines for pimples? Luckily, there's a lightweight anti-aging emulsion with this unpredictable skin type in mind.
Avene (AKA Eau Thermale Avene) offers Ystheal+ Lotion as part of their hydrotherapy-based skincare collection, and it's the perfect pick for reducing the signs of aging in combo complexions.
The star ingredients are the patented pre-tocopheryl, a damage-preventing antioxidant, and retinaldehyde C.T., an uber-version of vitamin A that dermatologists have used to smooth away wrinkles on a whopping 5,000 volunteer faces.
The lotion's tawny color is a bit of a surprise at first, but then again, so is its effectiveness in making skin look instantly glowy and soft-but never oily or reactive.
