Do Wrinkle Creams Work? Yes, With Proper Preventitive Care.

Jul 19, 2008
It's a little-recognized and incredibly sad fact; about 75% of the human race is disgustingly vain in some way, shape, or form. I must admit, I am often a little vain myself; though there is a difference between being actually vain and wanting to take care of your body to look good. One constant battle humans fight is against wrinkles. In this article, we'll examine what products whether natural or man-made can actually help reduce wrinkles and products that are more talk than anything, while attempting to answer an everyday pondered question... do wrinkle creams really work?

Before I continue, it's worthwile to speak briefly about preventable environmental factors that lead to more pronounced wrinkles. The big environmental factors are sun exposure, tobacco smoke and dehydration of the face. Excess sun exposure and tanning can lead to excessive wrinkles later in life. Most people are also aware that smokers wrinkle up earlier as well. The most important to consider though is dehydration of the face. Alcohol based aftershaves or creams will dry out the face and cause extensive damage resulting in wrinkles.

This prevention is always the best cure; if nothing else, it will help one to age gracefully. By wearing strong sunblock, not smoking, and using moisturizing creams, one can reduce or halt eventual wrinkles (while also taking better care of your entire body, too). Remember; no amount of this work can completely stop wrinkles, as wrinkles are a mere factor of age so people rely on wrinkle creams to retain youthful appearances.

Wrinkle creams that work are ones that manage to tighten the skin and lend it additional strength with some success. This is accomplished through products that add moisture to the skin. These wrinkle creams or as many market them \"Anti-aging cream,\" are not magical salves. Wrinkle creams that add moisture can typically lead to a 10% decrease in Wrinkle depth, which is quite significant, but will not leave a person looking like a 20 year old.

One place to look for help with finding the perfect Wrinkle cream or anti-aging product is the American Anti-Aging association. This is a private group that looks at the many products on the market and rates them on scales of usefulness. Of course, one could also look at various consumer reviews or search magazines and internet sources to find the perfect cream.

Anti wrinkle cream does work for a number of reasons. The first is that it positively improves the quality of skin by adding moisture, primarily through the use of retinol. Retinol is a variant of vitamin A that is fat-soluble, and is known for it's rejeuvenative properties.

Retinol is contained in a number of natural ingredients such as various foods. One could get at retinol by eating eggs, liver, spinach and carrots. The benefit of a cream containing retinol, rather than ingesting it is simple. If you apply the cream directly to the face, the retinol gets directly to the area you want it to be. This means none of the precious material is wasted in the metabolism.

The question approached at the beginning of the article asked, \"Do wrinkle creams really work?\" My conclusive answer is, yes, wrinkle creams do work to some degrees, depending on how you look at it. The act of applying wrinkle creams combined with some degree of long-term, preventative protection can work miracles for one's skin and shed years of age off their overall appearance.
