Can Wrinkle Creams Really Help Aging Skin?

Yes, high quality anti-wrinkle creams actually can help reduce fine lines by hydrating the skin and rebuilding collagen. 

But, not all products are created equal. If you want to avoid potentially adverse side effects, you must be picky about your products.

[infobox maintitle=”3 Ingredients to Avoid” subtitle=”” bg=”teal” color=”black” opacity=”on” space=”30″ link=”no link”]

[item title=”Parabens“]Parabens are a common  additive used to increase the shelf life of cosmetic products. It is widely known that parabens are linked to cancer. Parabens appear on the label as methyl, ethyl, and butyl or propyl paraben. This ingredient can  also cause skin reactions, allergies, rashes and even mood swings.[/item][item title=”Alcohol“]If youthful looking skin is what you’re after, avoid products with alcohol, as  they can leave your skin feeling tight, itchy, and irritated. Your face may be left looking older because it is far less hydrated and this will not help with the appearance of fine lines or deep wrinkles.[/item][item title=”Human Growth Hormone“]HGH has been shown to be affective in treating wrinkles; however, experts say it may contribute to the development of diabetes. Trading in a minor problem for the possibility of a major one, is probably not a  good idea.[/item][/accordion]

Avoid these three harmful ingredients. Be observant, read ingredient labels, and choose products with only natural ingredients.

Wrinkles are both inevitable and continually occurring. Don’t get discouraged; with a little extra care on a regular basis, your skin can begin to look and feel younger. Take care of your skin from the inside out by taking preventive measures, eating a balanced diet, drinking an adequate amount of water and choosing an all-natural anti-wrinkle cream.
