How to Choose an Anti Wrinkle Cream

How to Choose an Anti Wrinkle Cream

There are a huge number of anti wrinkle products on the market, including deep wrinkle creams, eye serums, night creams etc. and it can be difficult to know which ones will be effective. Just because a product is expensive that doesn’t mean it will be more effective than a cheaper cream. You are often paying more for the brand name than for the ingredients it contains.

Prices you will see vary from under $10 to over $100 so you need to do some research before you buy one of these creams. Neutrogena has a range of anti wrinkle creams available for less than $10 that have excellent reviews by satisfied customers. For example Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle Cream has a customer rating of four and a half stars at Amazon with many customers happy with the results.

The most effective ingredient in anti wrinkle products is retinol. This has been clinically proven to reduce wrinkles and fine lines although it does take some time. So when you are choosing an anti wrinkle cream you should look carefully at the ingredients. It is also a good idea to find one that tells you the concentration of retinol. You will want to start with a lower concentrations, .15% or .3%, if you have not used a retinol cream before until your skin becomes used to it. Retinol can cause some irritation and redness and can be very drying to the skin.

Be especially careful if you have sensitive or dry skin and use a small amount of the cream once a day until you see how your skin is reacting to it. If you don’t see any irritation you can safely use it twice a day. Use a good moisturizer to combat the dryness. Some creams also contain Coenzyme Q which is a good free radical scavenger and can help protect your kin from further damage. It also can boost retinol’s beneficial effects.

One thing to be careful of, if you use an anti wrinkle product containing retinol, is to ensure you use a sunscreen whenever you go out as it does make your skin more sun sensitive.

So, in conclusion, when you are choosing an anti aging wrinkle cream, look for one that contains retinol, preferably with Coenzyne Q. Check the concentration and read as many reviews as possible by actual users to find out how effective it is.

    With the various of anti aging cream products, it is becoming kind of arduous searching for the right one. I do agree that just because the product is expensive “doesn’t mean it will be more effective”, some won’t work in your skin, search first of the products which will satisfy your needs along with the ingredients, like retinol and Coenzyme Q. Thanks for informing us.
