Usually, the supply of vitamin A through food is not sufficient and hence the need to apply this cream to keep our skin shiny and awesome. It also helps to improve skin color by reducing pigmentation. It should also be noted that Retinol, should be applied only at night.
  • Moisturizer: Do you know that oily skin needs gel-type moisturizer and dry skin needs cream-based moisturizer? You should take special care to buy one that doesn’t block your pores. If you look at the pack, you can easily find out whether it is cream-based or gel-based. So, choosing one according to your skin type would help you look amazing. CeraVe’s facial lotion would be the right choice for oily skin and MISSHA Super Aqua Cell Renew Snail Cream is appropriate for dry skin.

Moreover, it takes a while for sunscreen cream to start working wonders for you. If your skin color is a shade darker than the normal color, you should use more cream to counter the pigmentation effect.

Hi Mam,
As mentioned I believe your age is 60. Mam Laser hair reduction works beautifully on thick dark coarse hair, if your hair is grey it might not be responsive to the treatment. Usually 6-8 sessions are needed, then it goes to maintenance depending on the response. See a Dermatologist.
