How to keep your skin looking young

To help you put your best face forward, we teamed up with board certified dermatologist Dr. Ranella Hirsch to bring you the latest and greatest skincare ingredients - a hot topic at this year's American Academy of Dermatology meeting.

Dr. Hirsch says all are backed by exciting clinical research.  Starting with retinols - time proven acne-fighters that recently received a "facelift."

Rhamnose is a sugar extract that promises to help fight wrinkles. Dr. Hirsch says it targets the layer of tissue in between the dermis and epidermis.

 
Or, try rose apple leaf to help reverse sun damage.  Cosmetic chemist Ron Robinson says it's a potent anti-oxidant.
 
And two ingredients are making a major comeback!  Co-enzyme-q-10, which helps produce the skin's energy, is also a proven anti-oxidant. And Dr. Hirsch says niacin, or vitamin B3, is now known for more than its moisturizing power.  
 
How do you know which product is right for you?
 
Hirsch says, "Find the thing that is most concerning to you about your skin, and then target new ingredients based on those items. Trying to fix too many things at once is a recipe for disaster."
