What is Anti-Wrinkle Cream?

Malcolm Tatum

Anti-wrinkle cream is a compound that is formulated to help restore moisture and elasticity to skin and thus help to minimize or hide the presence of wrinkles. A wrinkle cream is considered a viable alternative to preserving a younger appearance without the need to resort to such methods as injections or surgical procedures. While some people report excellent results with anti-wrinkle cream, others believe the cream products today do little to nothing in helping reduce the presence of wrinkles.

There are a number of wrinkle cream products on the market today. Natural anti-aging solutions such as anti-wrinkle cream and facial kits often make use of ingredients like aloe vera and tamanu oil in order to increase the moisture content and also temporarily tighten the skin. Organic types of anti-aging creams are found at many health food stores.

Commercial blends of various chemical compounds are also available to help with the presence of wrinkles. Anti-wrinkle treatments of this type provide the same benefits as the organic products and generally cost less. The commercial creams can be found at most drugstores as well as many department stores that carry skin care products.

Using an anti-wrinkle cream is a viable option when an individual does not wish to go through any type of invasive procedure in order to achieve a more youthful appearance. While no anti-wrinkle cream claims to provide results as dramatic as those achieved with Botox® injections, face lifts, eyebrow lifts and other types of plastic surgery, the creams have the advantage of rarely causing any type of side effects. In addition, the effects of an anti-wrinkle cream are short-lived. This means that the user can simply choose to stop applying the cream if the desired results are not to his or her liking. That is not an option with plastic surgery and other methods of wrinkle removal.

It is possible to purchase anti-wrinkle cream products at very affordable prices. However, anyone who has some type of ongoing skin problem should check with a dermatologist before initiating use of any type of anti-wrinkle product. While the chances for some type of negative reaction are low, it is possible for ingredients used in many creams to aggravate an existing condition and lead to a great deal of discomfort.

@talentryto- Look for a face cream that has natural ingredients like fruit oils, honey, and cocoa butter. Artificial ingredients, fragrances, and chemicals can weigh down the skin and make it look older over time. On the other hand, natural ingredients are absorbed easily by the skin, and promote a dewy, glowing appearance.


@talentryto- Though most ingredients actually do very little to improve the texture and surface of your facial skin, there are some that have promising results.

Retinols, peptides, and alpha hydroxy acids are all skin cream ingredients that do provide some noticeable improvements in the skin when used on a daily basis. These ingredients help by removing dry, dull skin cells and promoting the growth of new ones. They also stimulate collagen production, which is a key factor in youthful, glowing skin.


What are some key ingredients to look for in the best type of wrinkle face cream? There are so many on the market, it is hard to tell if you are buying one that will work or that is just full of empty promises making skin smooth and free of wrinkles.
