Hi Dr. Maureen, can you please recommend the best summer moisturizer containing retinoids for anti-aging on the South African market?


Hi there! WOW, that’s quite a question! What I can tell you is that there are quite a few brilliant moisturisers containing retinoids available in SA, specifically designed for anti-ageing. Skin Medica makes a brilliant product called the Tri-Retinol Complex (and the step up from this, the Tri-Retinol Comples ES). Skin Ceuticals makes a product called Retinol 0,3. Neostrata makes a great moisturiser with an SPF containing Retinol, called Matrix Support. Lamelle makes a night cream called Evening Glow that contains Retinol. The Environ Range contains Vitamin A. I can go on mentioning quite a few products, but at the end of the day, there really isn’t a “One size fits all” moisturiser. You have to match the right moisturiser for YOU with your skin conditions. In general, I suggest using retinoids at night, and use a moisturiser with great anti-oxidants and a good SPF during the day.
