I ran across topical melatonin. The article says it helps wrinkles and other skin ageing problems. What is your impression of this please Dr? Instead of buying the cream could the melatonin capsules contents be used in skin cream? thanks

DIY topical melatonin is probably relatively easy to do, but since the effects of melatonin on the skin are unknown and appropriate concentrations are unkown, I am not sure that the use of DIY or commercial melatonin products is such a good idea at present. That is, not unless you sibscribe to the position: "I'll try anything that even remotely sounds like an interesting thing to try, even if it's skin benefits and risks are unknown."
