moisturisers for elderly skin

Hi, a question about elderly skin. Thankfully, my parents have had their Covid jab (70s). The nurse administering the jab told my dad that his skin is very very dry. He is a stubborn man and won't readily go to his GP. What over the counter moisturisers can I buy for him?

Retinol

Retinol – I know that this is the one thing that people say makes a big difference to your skin, but I don’t understand all the different types – what would you suggest?

Sunscreen

My mother has never put on sunscreen in her life and assures me that her leathery skin doesn’t need it at her age. I disagree as she looks like she has baked for years but I am sure she should still be putting cream on?

creams

I have always used moisturiser on my whole body but as I get older should I be using a thicker cream?

Wrinkles

As I am moving into the menopauses my skin is turning into my elderly mothers – ie all wrinkly; is there anything I can do to either prevent this as seems to be happening before my eyes! Someone mentioned to look at my oestrogen levels?

alternative testing for abnormal cells

What is the progress of the test to determine abnormal cells from urine samples? They were working on this new method last year for women who have difficulties with smear tests.
