Choosing Anti Wrinkle Creams

If you smile frequently, squint or make any sort of facial expression, there is no question you will get wrinkles on your face.  It happens to the best of us.  Trust me, even if you slept your entire life on your back and never squished your face onto a pillow, you would still get wrinkles.  Step outdoors into the sun.  Zap!, you’re stuck with wrinkles.

But, don’t feel discouraged.  Thanks to scientific progress in beauty care, there is a way to prevent wrinkles.  If you already have them, never fear, anti wrinkle products can also serve your needs very well.  Buy a daily anti aging face cream with a sun protection factor (SPF) in it.  You’ll be grateful.  The following active ingredients are important to look for when researching the best anti wrinkle face creams:

  • Look for retinol in your anti wrinkle face cream.  It is an antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals that break down skin cells which in turn causes wrinkles.  It’s in our foods, like blueberries and should also be in our anti wrinkle face cream.
  • Buy anti aging face creams with either natural (like fruit) or manufactured alpha hydroxyl acids.  You’ll love what they do.  Alpha hydroxyl acids remove the upper layer of dead skin cells and stimulate the growth of smooth new skin with a bright even texture.  After consistent usage, your face will have a younger, fresher appearance.  (Remember:  always use a sunscreen over these anti wrinkle face creams, if your anti wrinkle face cream doesn’t have one in it, or wear a foundation with an SPF.  Alpha hydroxyl acids will make you more prone to sunburn which causes wrinkles, something we’re trying to avoid or at least minimize.)
  • Choose an anti wrinkle face cream with copper peptides listed as one of the ingredients because it will stimulate collagen production.  Cell renewal is naturally constant.  We lose collagen as we age and anti aging face creams that stimulate its return will give the skin a firmer, plumped-up look.
  • Kinetin in your anti aging face cream will improve the look of your wrinkles and even out varying skin pigmentation and blotchiness.  It helps the skin retain moisture and stimulates collagen production.
  • You may like to drink it, tea, that is, but find it in your anti aging face cream and you’ll benefit from it’s soothing properties inside and out.

If you have oily skin, be sure to select an anti aging face cream that suits you, maybe a gel-based one.  If you have dry skin, a heavier anti wrinkle face cream will serve you well, especially in the dry winter months.  People living in cooler climates with constant heat attacking their skin need tender loving care for their skin which already suffers from the effects of the environment.  Either way, don’t skip or minimize the importance of great daytime and nighttime anti wrinkle face creams.  You’ll be grateful you took the time to apply it 365 days a year.  Put it in the same category of importance as brushing your teeth.
