Discovering Anti-Wrinkle Creams

Sep 12, 2008
Okay, so we're all getting older, right? Yes, right, but even though this is true, we can still look our best.

These days, we don't have to suffer from the dry skin our grandmothers had to put up with. Instead, the market contains many anti-wrinkle creams that can help us have smooth, supple skin well into what used to be called "old age."

Let us think about the reasons your skin starts to age before reflecting on the factors that make anti-wrinkle cream work. As we advance in years our skin begins to reflect our age. We begin to experience wrinkles, sagging skin and age spots. Of course there can be many reasons for this. Prolonged exposure to the sun, smoking, heavy drinking, and even genetics can play their part in skin aging. Your skin gradually undergoes changes as you age. You will find that collagen will decrease and there is often an increase in "free radicals" which will deteriorate your skin.

Although skin on the face will without question wrinkle to some extent as we get older, we can help reverse some of those effects of aging with a good antiwrinkle cream. Of course, we also have to make good choices with diet, exercise, and proper hydration, as well as avoiding smoking and getting enough sleep if we want to look younger.

There is a glut of anti-wrinkle creams and anti-aging potions on the market but it is good to know that the best ones will have ingredients like the following in them:

One of these ingredients is called retinol. It is a very effective part of anti-wrinkle cream. As well as being derived from vitamin A it is also a powerful antitoxidant. It will also help the skin to rejuvenate itself. It is a fact that a 20 year old will experience complete outer skin replacement in 28 days, however a 40 year old person will take twice as long. This means that as we age we will need to quicken up the process of skin rejuvenation. Retinol does this by dissolving the old skin layer and allowing the new skin to come.

Acids like Alpha hydroxy acids and poly hydroxy acids are natural acids from fruits. They remove your skin's outer layer and are called exfoliates. This will allow the new facial skin to emerge. These acids give minor injury to the face, which will also encourage new skin growth. Because of these actions your skin will become very sensitive, especially to sunlight. It is important to remember to use sunscreen when exposing your face to the sun's rays.

Another effective antitoxin is Coenzyme Q 10; it is known to be one of the strongest on the market. this antitoxin neutralizes free radicals. These toxins damage new skin growth and contribute to skin aging. New growth of collagen is presumed to be stimulated by this substance.

It is thought that Kinetin may help to moisturize the skin and increase collagen growth. It is relatively new and more clinical trials must be done to see the real results.

It is good to remember that the price of anti-wrinkle cream does not necessary indicate the effectiveness of it. A better idea is to check out the product carefully yourself. You can see reviews and testimonials of the product and make your own judgment. You can save a ton of money and really get your money's worth.
