Freeze the hand of time with the ultimate Wrinkle Cream guide

Author: Jen Hopkins

If you've reached that age where mother time starts to become your number one hater and begins to wear the glory and resilience of your skin then it's probably time to look up an anti face sagging regimen. There are many anti-wrinkle preparations available over the counter and on the web, but anyone who's ever fought the wrinkle wars know that these creams can only get you so far. Expecting a face-lift from your web store cream is a total fail. Most counter preparations contain a lower dose of active ingredients that reduce fine lines compared to prescription products. Maximizing your skin care results will boil down to understanding which active ingredient will work well with your wrinkle condition and what kind of active ingredient will work best with your current anti-wrinkle routine.

You can measure what to expect from wrinkle creams in terms of lines reduced, by the amount of active ingredient they have. Unfortunately there is no over the counter measure that will give you glamorous lift results. There are creams that do provide modest results and will keep you looking fresh and reasonably wrinkle free. Vitamin A has many derivatives that are used in most anti-wrinkle preparations with Retinol being one of the most popular in over the counter preparations. Another derivative, which is tretinoin is prescription only, so if you haven't convinced your dermatologist to throw you one then stick to its close cousin mainly since Retinol is widely accepted as a good anti-wrinkle ingredient.

Alpha and beta Hydroxy acids are synthetic versions of derivative compounds found in sugar rich fruits. These act as exfoliants and remove dead skin to stimulate smooth and evenly toned new skin. The downside to using hydroxyl acids is that it increases risk of sun damage so don't forget your SPF when using creams with this active ingredient. Coenzyme Q10 is another helpful ingredient that promotes and regulate energy production in cells, it has had claims of reducing fine lines around the eyes and use of this nutrient protects from sun damage.

Now that you have an understanding of what active ingredients in wrinkle creams do something, if anything for your skin it's now time to work on an anti-wrinkle regimen. First thing is first, remember that anti-wrinkle preparations may lessen the appearance of fine lines, but it always depends on how much you use it and the amount of active ingredient found in the cream. When using wrinkle creams always remember to compliment your regimen with sun protection, keep it fresh with a good moisturizer and avoid wrinkle causing baddies such as smoking and too much radiation.
