Anti-aging creams have been in the market for several years and are very popular products in most skin care product categories. As we age the skin loses its firmness, elasticity, skin tone and texture and the appearance of lines, wrinkles and fine lines.
Anti-aging creams generally contain moisturisers, preservatives, antioxidants and other substances to promote skin cell rejuvenation, but they do not address the major cause of premature ageing: the oxidative damage of the skin cells due to the ultraviolet (UV) light rays of the sun. Hence, anti-aging treatments, like anti-oxidant skin care products and skin moisturisers, do not help the skin repair itself.
All anti-wrinkle products that claim to be effective at removing wrinkles are based on the concept of a “balance of substances” within the skin. This is based on the assumption that every single compound that exists within the human body is present in the cells of the skin. Unfortunately, we don’t know the exact structure of all the substances that make up the skin, thus, it is impossible to establish whether or not a particular ingredient will produce any effect on the skin.
In addition, there are many types of anti-wrinkle skin products available in the market nowadays. Most anti-aging skin creams have similar composition and therefore contain similar components, including alcohol and parabens. Although these substances may temporarily relieve your skin of dryness and itching, they also stimulate the production of sebum in the skin which is the main cause of the appearance of wrinkles.
Some other common ingredients in anti-wrinkle cream include mineral oil, glycerin and petrolatum. These are derived from petroleum, but they do not contribute to the protection of the skin. Some of them can even trigger the formation of more wrinkles and lines. Furthermore, they should not be applied on the face because it can cause excessive drying and can even cause an allergic reaction in people who have sensitive skin.
Therefore, you need to take time in reading the ingredients label of your anti-wrinkle skin products before you decide to purchase one. You will be glad that you did. because the ingredients listed in the labels should be safe and should not cause any adverse effects to your skin.
As you may know, the skincare industry is big business, and unfortunately, some companies do not give the necessary care and attention to their products. So, if you think that you will be buying a product from an unknown source that does not have the necessary information, then do not be disappointed, because chances are you will not get the best anti-wrinkle treatment available in the market today.
The safest anti wrinkle creams will contain only natural ingredients like Cynergy TK and Phytessence Wakame. They can effectively combat wrinkles and fine lines, as well as prevent skin cells from aging due to free radical damage by producing new collagen and elastin.
