Thinning Skin

Aged 59, female, skin dry, thinning like one-ply tissue paper, slackened, sensitive. Best advice for products to use on face and body to renew without overloading?
Thanks Jill

Re: Thinning Skin

Dear Jill,

Thank you for your question. It may be useful to see your dermatologist to see if you may benefit from a retinoid cream and sunlight protection.

I hope this is helpful.
With Best Wishes,
