Wrinkles are a normal factor in the aging process. Of course, each skin and person may show signs of aging at a different pace. This could be attributed in part to genetics, skin care, lifestyle and environmental factors. Our skin comes under attack from free radicals – harmful molecules that interact with cell membranes and wreak havoc on them. With increasing age, the skin’s ability to restore itself and repair the cells is reduced. Wrinkles are first noticed in the skin around the eyes – crows feet. This is on account of the fewer oil glands in that area as compared to the rest of the face. Other signs of aging are lines around the mouth and laugh lines.
In the quest for younger looking skin and wrinkle reduction, many an anti aging wrinkle cream is available today. Wrinkle creams containing AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) exfoliate the skin and remove the outer layer of dead cells. This leads to a new skin surface that is smoother and thicker on account of the cell stimulation. This works as a wrinkle reducer. Another element that can prove to be catalytic in the production of collagen that is so vital for smooth skin is Vitamin C. This powerful antioxidant fights free radicals. Most anti wrinkle creams help in regulating the skin’s moisture balance and create a barrier to reduce moisture loss. Anti aging wrinkle creams are applied after the skin is washed clean. You can aid better absorption of the anti-wrinkle cream by applying the cream with light massage around the eyes and mouth. When done gently, it can help reduce small wrinkles and improve capillary blood flow.
