Anti-Wrinkle Creams Reviewed 2011
Before and After?
Anti wrinkle creams used to be a luxury, which cost a lot of money, the more expensive they were the better, they were supposed to work for you.
These days though the marketplace is being flooded with anti-wrinkle creams and serums that are a fraction of the cost and each and every one of them claims to be the best of it's kind.
The aim of this page is to compare four of the cheaper brands of Anti-wrinkle creams to see if any of them do make a noticeable difference to your skin or if they would be better to use to grease a squeaking door hinge.
What makes a good Anti Wrinkle Cream?
A lot of skin creams on the market today have not been fully tested yet by independent Dermatologists, so the best thing to do would be to look at the list of ingredients on each product, the ingredients are usualy listed on the products by order of concentration, ie if Retinol, (for example) is at the bottom of the ingredient list it is unlikely that there will be enough of it in the product for it to work effectivly.
Ingredients that have proven to be effective in reducing wrinkles and lines include:
Retinol, AHA's or lactic acid as it is better known, Glycolic acid and Citric acid.
To Lighten age spots and even out skin tone:
Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Hydroquinone and Soy are the ingredients to look out for.
To improve the texture of your skin:
look out for Retinol and hyaluronic acid.
To prevent premature aging.
Sunscreen, Vitamin E, Vitamin C, Idebenone, Coenzyme Q10 and Green tea.
