Myth of the skin - Skin creams with collagen can replace collagen - collagen is a large molecule and isn't going to pass through your skin and somehow incorporate itself exactly where it was lost. Your body has to synthesize new collagen on its own from basic proteins. Certain vitamins, such as A and C, can help this along.
For an excellent topical source of Vitamin C, our Bare Skin Natural Young C Serum is the best.

First, the answer is yes, retinol can make wrinkles worse, especially when you first start using it. What is happening is a drying effect, and one can get epidermal sliding from separation from the dermis. But this is temporary, and will eventually end up tightening the skin around the eyelids, provided you are using a potent retinol preparation.
