Vitamin A cream helps reduce wrinkles associated with natural skin aging
Applying Vitamin A to the skin appears to improve the wrinkles associated with natural aging and may help to promote the production of skin-building compounds, according to a report in the May issue of Archives of Dermatology, one of the JAMA/Archives journals.
The wrinkles and brown spots associated with aging appear first and most prominently on skin exposed to the sun, according to background information in the article. "Human skin not exposed to the sun also ages but less dramatically," the authors write. "In intrinsic, natural or chronological aging, skin loses its youthful appearance by becoming thinner, laxer and more finely wrinkled. These changes are readily appreciated by inspecting the upper inner arm." .
But maybe because my dark color skin!
