Precautions when choosing Wrinkle Creams

There is no specific age or time on when wrinkles will start to appear in our face, some people had it in their mid-20s and some of them had it when they were already on their mid-50s. The things that we did when we were younger definitely had effects on us once we become older. There might have been things that we did unconsciously or consciously that lead to the development of the lines on our face earlier than what we have expected. Sad to say, no one told us that there are things that we should have done in order to slow down our aging process and the formation of the fine and deep lines on our skin.

The main reason for the formation of the lines on our face is the losing of our skin’s capability to store elastin and collagen which are the two most important proteins needed to keep our skin elastic and strong, making it less prone to the folds and creases. Those lines appear once our skin becomes dry and saggy which are some of the effects of not having enough elastin and collagen in our skin.

Since most people, women in particular, have been in the search for wrinkle treatment to remove those pesky lines on their face, one of the things that caused a lot of hype in the world of cosmetics is the development of wrinkle creams which has become almost the same as the most sought-after fountain of youth.

There are thousands of different anti-aging creams out there that promises the different results that we have all been wanting in a cream, with that being said, it is hard to choose which one really works and which don’t.

Below are some of the ingredients that we should look for when buying an anti-aging cream:

  • Retinol – has been derived from Vitamin A which is an ingredient rich in anti-oxidant properties that helps in the elimination of the different lines in our face.
  • Collagen – this is what causes our skin to stay elastic and strong making it less prone to impurities including fine and deep creases.
  • Copper Peptides – known to have healing properties and aids in collagen production of our skin. It also gives added protection to our skin.
  • Antioxidants – known to protect our skin from different damages, keeping our skin to maintain its youthful glow.
  • Kinetin – a plant-derived ingredient that helps in improving our skin tone while keeping it free from impurities.
  • Hydroxy Acids – aid in removing old skin in order for new ones to replace them, making our skin smooth and younger-looking.
  • Tea Extracts – consist of different compounds that aids in inflammation. It also has antioxidant properties protecting our skin. One of the most commonly used tea extract is the one derived from green tea.

There are also ingredients in anti-aging creams that we should watch out for:

  • Mineral Oils – this particular ingredient may cause our pores to clog, which in turn stops our skin from removing the different toxins that it may have. There were also reports of it causing allergies when used for a long time.
  • Fragrances – some creams contains fragrances for it too smell good, which gives its main purpose. While this is the case, some of them contain toxins which are not good for the skin.
  • Alcohols – can cause the skin to become dry and might cause irritations as well.

Since these creams are something that we will put in our face, we should be very careful in choosing which one to use. One of the best advice is to consult a doctor first.
