Wrinkle Creams, An Individual Experience

by Geoff Hopkins

How long do you spend putting on makeup in the morning? Is your makeup enhancing your natural beauty, or is it covering up years or wear and tear on your skin? As you age, it tends to become the latter, which only helps while the makeup is on.

People often start to worry about their skin when they’re in their teens. This is because of the start of acne, the pressure of friends who try to be the cutest or sexiest, and the desire to have sex appeal in the later teens and 20s.

Even after school, a woman’s appearance is critical. When was the last time you saw someone with wrinkly skin and bags under their eyes on any commercial other than a sleeping aid? Exactlynever! Woman must take care of their skin, and society enforces this is beauty pageants, talent shows, etc. But do wrinkle creams provide the miracle cures that we see on TV?

Flip through the TV shopping channels, or pick up an add from almost any department store or even drug stores. You will find an innumerable listing of wrinkle creams for all over the world. This makes it a difficult task to pick the right one for you.

Our skin is made of skin-cells. These skin cells require certain proteins like “Elastin” and “Collagen”. If these two proteins are not available in the desired amount, wrinkles start appearing. Wrinkle creams, therefore, must reverse the effects of aging in order to lessen wrinkles.

When selecting a wrinkle cream, you have to remember that your skin condition is what will define what you need and what will work. If you have a lot of sun damage, there are creams that target this in particular. If you tend to have dry skin, there are wrinkle creams that focus of moisturizing.

Read articles on ‘wrinkle creams’ before you purchase a particular anti-wrinkle product. Do not take decisions in haste. Your skin deserves the best. Hence, it is important to understand the anatomy of wrinkle creams. Wrinkle creams, in general, must have three ingredients- sunscreen, moisturizer and vitamin-E.

If these ingredients are not there in your wrinkle cream, then it is time for you to search for another cream. It takes a few weeks (and sometimes a few months) for an anti-aging skin care product to show its results. Impatience on your part will make you frustrated. Do Wrinkle Creams Work? Isn’t this a never-ending question?
