I was one of the lucky ones to come of age in the '90s and early millennium, so I am of the tribe of Jennifer Aniston-worshippers. Even if you're not one to quote Rachel Green all day long or have Jen's dating history memorized by year and Oscar date, you have to admit that the woman does not age. So it comes as no surprise that, when it comes to Jennifer, my approach is always "I'll have what she's having."
I once read that Jen is an embracer of retinol, a form of vitamin A that helps promote cell generation and prevent wrinkles from forming on the face. I quickly tracked down a concentrated serum — HydroPeptide Anti-Wrinkle Polish & Plump Peel ($78) — and worked it into my nighttime routine, after cleansing and toning.
What I love about this formula (and retinol in general) is that in addition to brightening and refining the skin, it's actually pretty effective in addressing adult acne. The active ingredient, Retinyl Palmitate in the serum gently exfoliates, while and tightening and cleaning out pores so my oily skin is kept in check. I've definitely noticed an improvement in the texture and appearance of skin. It's got a nice, natural shine to it, and I'm all about that.
