What is more beneficial for under eye dryness: eye cream with hyaluronic acid or eye cream with peptides?
Hyaluronic acid: If there is sufficient hyaluronic acid to cause skin hydration, that would be the preferred product.

Forget Renova (tretinoin): Renova (tretinoin) does little of what you want it to. Instead see a plastic surgeon specializing in facial rejuvenation. Retin-a, the main ingredient in Renova (tretinoin) is prescriptive because it penetrates the skin to actually work. You will have some irritation at first, but your surgeon can help yu through it to wonderfully rejuvenated skin. I prefer the Retin-A combined in the obagi nu-derm system. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Heard that renova (tretinoin) cream made by galderma labs, and is a cheaper one, where can I find it?
Renova (tretinoin) Worthless: Renova (tretinoin) is Retin-A mixed with mineral oil to reduce the redness caused by Retin-A when you first start it. The redness is necessary for the Retin-A to work and the mineral oil is bad for your skin. The fact that you get no redness simply means that you are not getting any change. The redness goes away, but you you get the change you desire. Retin-a is best when combined. See a plastic surgeon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Age Spot Treatment: Renova, (tretinoin) in my opinion, has no place in treating any skin condition. Retin-a replenishes collagen & reduces wrinkles. To treat spots requires hydroquinone. This can be used alone, but is best combined with retin-a, an Alpha hydroxy to remove abnormal cells, a pH restorer and a sun block. The obagi nu-derm system is the best way to do this. See a plastic surgeon specializing in skin rejuvenation. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
