Wrinkles and Anti Wrinkles Creams

If you desire to stay young for a long, long time, it is important to know about wrinkles, why they appear, what can be done to remove them and how they can be prevented.


In the deeper layers of the skin there is a network of collagen and elastin. These are proteins that are required to provide support to the skinís surface layers and to keep it firm and taut.

From your mid twenties onwards this network begins to loosen up, as a natural part of aging. The steady loss of collagen and elastin from your skin is estimated to be at a rate of 1.5% each year. This is when wrinkles begin to make their mark.

Natural aging and wrinkle formation are further accelerated by over exposure to the sun. Excessive sun exposure also produces other symptoms of premature aging such as fine lines, age spots, dryness and hyper pigmentation. Some of the other causes of wrinkles and fine lines on the face are habitual facial expressions, smoking, pollution, sudden weight loss and stress.

Many women (and men) swear by anti wrinkle or anti aging skin care products. There are a lot of easily available cosmetics and therapies that promise to iron out the infirmities of an aging skin. How do you know what is best for you?


Modern age-defying skin care ingredients closely resemble natural skin components to enable better absorbance of the product. Popular and reliable anti- wrinkle creams are moisturiser- based and help to replace the fast depleting store of collagen and elastin. Other anti -wrinkle creams are loaded with anti oxidants, such as vitamins C and E that counter the oxidants caused by free radicals.

Many of us may not be aware but a good sunscreen is an active part of wrinkle management. It is imperative to apply a sunscreen with Sun Protective Factor (SPF) of at least 15, twenty minutes before stepping out in the sun.

Many anti wrinkle creams contain retinol for its antioxidant properties. Alpha and beta hydroxy acids are used for their ex-foliant and rejuvenating properties. But these ingredients can deepen sun damage therefore, care must be taken to apply a sunscreen after use.

Some of your cosmetic products are harsh and do more harm than good. Hence, great care must be taken to choose the product that is right for your skin.


The best of anti wrinkle creams should provide instant results; in other words there must be visible effects within a day or two of usage.

It is often difficult to find a cosmetic product based on real science. It may, therefore, be prudent to draw from the resources available in your kitchen or your garden to keep those wrinkles at bay.

The secret to younger looking you is in your blood. The healthier your blood is, the younger you look and feel.
It is my friend's secret. I recently invade her bedroom and found the device she's using, I asked her for reviews and did some research as well. The secret is microcirculation of your blood. The device is transdermal, non invasive so zero pain. I am on it for a week now and I feel good the more i use it. It is called doxyva it delivers is vaporized purified CO2. ;]


As a Darjeeling Tea lover I'd suggest that Teas, especially green teas and white teas aid in speeding up the process of ageing throughout the body due to the presence rich antioxcidants. Also other benefits associated with drinking them cannot be overlooked
