Things to Know About Anti-Wrinkle Creams
You must have seen that every wrinkle cream claims transformative and visible results, but the fact is, majority of these creams that you can get over the counter never make a difference.
That doesn’t mean that there is no solution for wrinkles. The challenge is crawling through various products that have a minimum effect on any wrinkle skin and finding the best one that gives great benefits of anti-wrinkle.
How the Wrinkle creams work?
Normally, all wrinkle creams that are available over the counter work by moisturizing the skin, which results in reducing the fine line appearance by enhancing the texture of skin and helping to reflect light.
Most of the wrinkle creams contain alpha hydroxyl acids, which will help you in swamping away dead cells of skin and exfoliate and your skin becomes smoother.
You can find antioxidants like green tea, kinetin or coenzyme Q10 in some anti-wrinkle creams. Antioxidants can damage free radicals, sun damage can create unstable molecules and can result in wrinkles on skin. But antioxidants work better in avoiding wrinkles in future when compared as a wrinkle reducer. So, if you are planning to use wrinkle cream which contains antioxidants, you can apply it under sunscreen to help in preventing sun damage.
Wrinkle creams that promise real advantages normally contain retinol, which can be found in products that are sold over the counter, and prescription retinoids like tazarotene and tretinoin. They are all derived from vitamin A, they are used to activate the generation of collagen and prevent thinning of skin. Retinoids even enhance the color of your skin by lightening the spots on skin.
The only and biggest reason to use a retinoid is they do work actually. Retinoids have been analyzed and proven to be effective in lowering the wrinkles that you have already. They can also help in preventing new wrinkles. To see the complete results it takes around ten to twelve months.
