Best Anti Aging Creams

Updated on July 21, 2009

If you are looking for the best anti aging creams what you are really looking for are the best anti wrinkle creams. After all, there is no magic cream out there, which will completely wash away our wrinkly and damaged skin. What there are, however, are products, which will help reduce the signs of aging and, more importantly, slow the signs of aging. 

Before I get into which is the best anti aging eye cream or the best anti aging face cream you need to understand that the reason for premature wrinkles in the facial area (most importantly around the eyes) is due to sun damage. As such, the “best anti aging cream” may very well be sunscreen (with an SPF of at least 15), not because it can cure existing wrinkles, but because it can prevent further wear on your skin. Sunglasses with UV protection also protect your eyes and your face. If you can, go for a frame style, which covers up as much of you face as possible. Aviator style or drop-looking sunglasses are recommended for this purpose. Because sun damage is the #1 cause of wrinkles the best anti aging cream has to have sunscreen built into it. If an anti aging cream, which you are considering to buy, has no sun protection, you may make your skin look a little better, but you are ignoring the main culprit of wrinkles, the sun!

Best anti aging creams: Can there be a best one?

If you are looking for the best rated anti aging creams you have to specify what “best rated” means. Best rated by the company? Best rated by users? Best rated by some site whose main goal is to sell you wrinkle creams in the first place? Scientific studies have shown that anti aging wrinkle creams largely do not deliver on their promises. They may make your skin look better, but they won’t accomplish any miracles. The manufacturers of these creams entice us with fancy bottle, fancy names, and high prices, but in the end, there is no relationship between price or brand name and effectiveness. What matters are the ingredients within them, which are shared by virtually all of the “best anti aging facial creams”. These ingredients include retinol, kinetin, copper peptides, and/or tea extracts. Because scientific studies haven’t validated any of the manufacturer’s claims, I highly recommend that you read user reviews on sites like Amazon.com and Drugstore.com before you make a decision. Fact is, there is no “best anti aging eye creams” or “best anti aging hand creams”. No cream will get you magic results and they are virtually all the same.
