- Alpha-hydroxy acids: These “fruit acids” including glycolic and lactic acid produce subtle improvement but are safe and cause no more than mild and temporary irritation.
- Antioxidants: These include preparations with vitamin A and E as well as beta-carotene.
- Ordinary moisturizers: It’s all about keeping your skin soft and moist. They make wrinkles look temporarily less prominent.
