Hello doctor,

I am 21 years old but my skin is very loose and it looks very old get wrinkled on the upper part of my hands, feet and also in some other parts. Some areas are too stiff. I never get exposed to the sun. For these, I am using Nivea SPF30. I take proper diet with fruits and vegetables but my problem is not solved. I have consulted a lot of dermatologists but there is no improvement. I do not want any wonder results but I need some improvement. I was very depressed by this condition. Please suggest any lotion or cream to solve my problem.

This is genetic and you cannot do anything about it with lotions and medicines. There is a temporary procedure called dermal fillers which will give fullness and youth to your hands and legs but that is not cheap and the results last for nine months to one year. If you are interested in these procedures you can meet a cosmetic dermatologist or plastic surgeon who does fillers.

Thank you doctor,

But a few months ago, I used retinol hand cream and it reduced some wrinkles. It is not available now instead of this can you suggest any other cream?

Retinol hand creams would not work on lax skin and coarse wrinkles. You can use Retino A (Tretinoin) or Supratret instead of Retinol hand cream. But use a little amount and apply a thin layer.
