Wrinkle Cream Information
Wrinkle creams are becoming increasingly popular among people over the age of thirty. Most dermatology experts I speak with maintain that an overall anti-aging regimen should start as early as age fourteen. Particularly, scholars maintain that wrinkle prevention is a much easier tactic to employ than wrinkle correction, and treating the signs of wrinkles early will help avoid expensive treatments later in life. It is imperative to be conscious of the environmental factors that contribute to aging. Environmental factors include lack of sleep, stress, smoking and alcohol, and of course, sun exposure.
A wrinkle cream is to an eye wrinkle cream what a facial eye serum is to an eye serum. It provides the same benefits, but is intended for all over use, for a one stop beauty treatment.
A wrinkle cream can be an effective compliment to an eye serum. Wrinkle creams act to give the skin the following effects:
- Reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the skin
- Eliminate fine lines
- Rejuvenate the skin
- Reduce the signs of crows feet
- Reduce deep lines stemming from the mouth and eye area
- Reduce forehead wrinkles, facial wrinkles, and wrinkles around the frown area
- Moisturize the skin
As we previously discussed, the attribute that sets “wrinkle creams” apart is the fact that they are usually associated with Retinol. Retinol is said to be one of the few repairing substances that is able to pass beneath the upper layers of the epidermis to the layers of skin containing collagen and elastin, resulting in what some would call “a face lift” on a much less dramatic scale of course. There are no creams that will actually provide the same results as a face lift. Retinol claims to be more effective than other products because it is:
- A special form of vitamin A
- A natural ingredient found in fish oils and liver
- An anti-oxidant that reduces the risk of cancer
- A free radical neutralizer
- A promoter of cell growth stimulation and reproduction
Retinol is not anything new to the skin care world. In fact, it’s been around for a very long time. Vitamin A’s chemical makeup was identified in 1931, by Swiss chemist Paul Karrer. He was rewarded with a Nobel Prize for his discovery. Retinol was a slightly rickety compound, prone to quick degeneration when exposed to oxygen and light. By the 1960s, researchers were metabolizing retinol into its more stable (and more active) cousin retinoic acid and were beginning to understand its tremendous power in skin-care applications.
There are many products on the market containing Retinol; perhaps one of the more popular products is the RoC line.
Other Retinol based products include:
- Revita-Lift Deep-Set Wrinkle Repair Night Cream – contains Pro Retinol A
- Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle Cream SPF15 – contains Retinol
Retin-A—a brand name for retinoic acid (also known as tretinoin)—was FDA-approved in 1971 as a prescription-strength treatment for acne, but skin care experts noticed almost immediately that a lot more than just breakouts were vanishing. Fine lines and wrinkles were disappearing as well!
Retinol can be very harsh on the skin and cause adverse reactions. Some Retinol products actually require a prescription from a dermatologist. Today there are three prescription-strength retinoids: tretinoin (brands include Atralin, Avita, Retin-A, Retin-A Micro, Renova), tazarotene (Avage, Tazorac), and adapalene (Differin). Many dermatologists find tazarotene stronger (and potentially more irritating) than tretinoin. Adapalene is the most gentle of the three, but may be less effective.
We recommend Delfogo’s Wrinkle Eraser Cream. This particular cream contains a concentrated blend of pharmaceutical grade Matrixly 3000, Argireline and Leuphasyl. Additionally, it is hyper-infused with A-Lipoic Acid, which is the ultimate cell protecting antioxidant.
