Wrinkle creams are a billion dollar industry, with THOUSANDS of different choices for consumers. How does a person choose? Do you choose an over-the-counter cream or splurge on one that costs $500.00? Are wrinkle creams that are sold in doctors or dermatologists office better? Do you use the whole skin line or just one product? This can be a hotly debated topic with both women and men. Everyone has their favorite that they swear by and others keep searching for their fountain of youth. It can be very confusing. Either way, there are some common and effective ingredients found in wrinkle creams. These ingredients can include Retinol, Hydroxy Acids, Kinetin, Tea Extracts and Argireline. Consumers should look for one of these ingredients in whatever wrinkle cream they decide to use. Studies have shown their effectiveness and durability in reducing wrinkles.
First lets look at Retinol. Retinol is a vitamin A compound. It was one of the first antioxidants used in wrinkle creams. Antioxidants are substances that will neutralize free radicals (unstable oxygen molecules that break down skin cells, which will cause wrinkles). Please note that you should avoid vitamin A derivatives if you are pregnant or nursing. Studies show that they can increase the risk of birth defects.
Next in line are Hydroxy acids. These include alpha, beta and poly hydroxyl acids. They are all synthetic versions of acids derived from sugar-containing fruits. All of the acids act as exfoliates, which remove the upper layer of old, dead skin. This in turn, helps stimulate the growth of new smooth skin. It is important that you wear sunscreen when using any of the hydroxyl acids, for they increase the risk of sunburn.
Kinetin has shown to improve wrinkles and reduce uneven pigmentation. While still unclear exactly how this plant growth factor works, it may help reduce wrinkles by helping skin retain moisture and stimulating the production of collagen.
In the past few years' tea extracts have become a popular ingredient in wrinkle creams. Several of the big name beauty companies are using tea extracts in their creams. These include green, black and white tea, all which contain antioxidants and anti-inflammatory ingredients. Right now green tea remains the most common, but more products containing the rare white tea are coming into the market.
Lastly, there is Argireline , a relatively new ingredient that is being used in wrinkle creams. It is a peptide that does two things. First, is reduces the appearance of existing wrinkles and then studies have shown that Argireline is effective in stopping wrinkle development.
A $500.00 wrinkle cream may not be better than the $30.00 one. Buying the right wrinkle cream is a personal decision. Everyone has unique and different skin. What works for someone, may have disastrous results for another. Use common sense, do your research on ingredients and see what works the best for your skin.
