Good advice for my aging skin

I recently traveled home for an overnight stay to take care of some business I have to finish regarding property that my mother left me.  My aunt came by and she has always kind of been my go to for advice about skin care.

 She has worked as a nurse for a local group of plastic surgeons for close to 30 years.  She has always spoke highly about fruit acids being the Holy grail of keeping aging skin wrinkle free and repairing sun damage as well as evening out skin tone. I have received several sample size gifts of this type of product called Theraderm. When I inquired today about getting and using a prescription of retinol A she quickly said why would I use an expensive prescription when I can purchase the Theraderm travel size set for $10 on sale through her office without a prescription. I told her that I had been using the Clinique 3 step system faithfully for 7 months.  It works for the most part but it doesn't seem to be reversing any damage just keeping breakouts away and maybe halting any further damage.  She told me although it's a great product it is known for being mild and great for very sensitive skin however, I need something much stronger now and at my age I want to be more aggressive if I want to protect my skin. 
In conclusion, I am changing to the Theraderm system next week and I will track the results very closely and post my ongoing results on a weekly basis.

Much love and God bless,
