Anti-wrinkle Skincare Strategies From a Memphis Dermatologist

George Woodbury MD 06/17/2022

Maybe you like to be outdoors in the sun, and maybe you want to keep your skin resilient by preventing or managing skin wrinkling. Exposure to Ultraviolet light from the sun (and from tanning bulbs) is in fact the most important factor in skin aging: splotchiness of skin color, texture changes, and wrinkling. Alpha-Hydroxy Acid (AHA) compounds like Glycolic Acid, first discovered in sugarcane and pineapple, improve skin texture and tone, acting as anti-wrinkle agents.

After 25 years of practicing Dermatology, in 2016 I became President of Big River Silk Skincare Inc., to manufacture and distribute 3 Glycolic Acid-containing anti-wrinkle and skin-smoothing moisturizers:

GlycoShea™ Facial&Neck Cream: 1 oz: $39.95/2 oz: $59.95/8 oz: $179.95.

GlycoShea™ Hand&Body Cream/Standard Strength: 1 oz: $19.95/2 oz: $29.95/8 oz: $139.95.

GlycoShea™ Hand&Body Cream/High Strength:1 oz: $29.95/2 oz: $44.95/8 oz: $144.95.

A personal sunscreen favorite of mine is Vanicream™ Sunscreen Sport SPF 50, available at (4 oz: $17.95). It’s both broad-spectrum, meaning it protects against UVA and UVB, and hypoallergenic. An added bonus is that it’s less likely to run into your eyes.

At Big River Silk Skincare, for convenience we also offer special cleansers: Ambersoy™ Soap Gel is a favorite for people with oily skin or combination skin and complexion issues (available in No Fragrance, Lemon, and Mint: 1 oz: $12.96/2 oz: $18.95; 8 oz; $59.95), and Vanicream® Gentle Facial Cleanser (6 oz: $11.95) is an option for people with dry skin.
