Ever wondered what’s inside your anti-wrinkle cream?


As we get older, we naturally start to develop wrinkles. Some people get wrinkles faster than others due to environmental stressors. Ultimately, the body will stop protecting and nourishing skin as well as it used to, and all of us will be affected by wrinkles.

Most people don’t have to deal with them until their 30s/40s, but implementing preventive care before this point can do wonders for your skin. To minimise your chances of developing wrinkles, you should actually start using anti-ageing creams during the ages of 25-30.

Not everyone wants to have surgical or even non-surgical procedures to remove wrinkles.  An anti-wrinkle cream is seen as a more viable, cheaper option. For some, they can be a miracle formula. However, with so many products on offer, it may be hard to find one that is suitable for you.

Keeping track

It’s essential to remember everyone reacts to creams differently and some products will be more effective than others. It’s possible that certain creams may give some people side effects, including redness and skin irritation.

When embarking on your skin care routine, keep track of the ingredients in products.

A formula for you

All the ingredients included in medical-grade products are proven to be safe and effective. However, it’s important to find the best cream on the market, subject to your specific needs as an individual, or these creams may do more damage than they do good.

Most creams are full of antioxidants. Antioxidants help by fighting against the free radicals that cause the skin to mutate and age.

Examples of antioxidants usually found in anti-wrinkle creams are Vitamins C and E. Vitamin C encourages the skin to heal, start the growth of collagen and may even help protect your skin from sun damage. Vitamin E helps your skin to repair itself and protects against bad bacteria. Combine Vitamins C and E it with Vitamin A and generally, anti-wrinkling results begin to show.

There are several other ingredients used in these creams, but if you want to make sure you’re getting the best anti-ageing results, look out for those vitamins!
