Gone are the days when everyone just let their skin age without any mitigation efforts. And gone are the days when everyone got Botox or cosmetic surgery.

More and more people are turning to more natural methods to reduce the signs of aging, and cosmetic surgery is slowly becoming less an issue. But it’s unlikely that women will just let their skin age without any effort on their part to keep it looking nice.

That means that anti aging wrinkle creams are in fashion. You can avoid cosmetic surgery yet get many of the same benefits. And it’s a real improvement over doing nothing.

But how do you buy a wrinkle cream? What should you look for? What can a cream realistically do for your skin? Will it really work?

There are some basic features you can look for in an anti aging cream, and if you narrow your criteria down a bit you can see that finding the right cream for you isn’t impossible.


Look for an anti-aging cream with solid ingredients. These should be ingredients that are designed to not only reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles, but should also help prevent the development of wrinkles in the future.

These ingredients include things like antioxidants like Vitamin C, idebenone, ubiquinone and Vitamin A, and ingredients that can stimulate the production of collagen. Because collagen production naturally decreases as you age, and it’s collagen that makes our skin look firm and tight, having some ingredients that can stimulate production is important. There are many new anti wrinkle cream ingredients these days that can stimulate production of collagen.


A good anti aging cream should work. It might seem silly to even say this, but it is worth saying. It should work. Often, we get caught up in the hype of new products and don’t pay enough attention to whether or not they actually work, and if they will work for us.

There are a couple of ways you can see if a product will work for you. First, read reviews. When you do your research on wrinkle creams, look for reviews that indicate the user got the results you are looking for. For example, if your main concern is sagging skin, look for reviews that note the skin was lifted or felt firmer.

When you read reviews, look for reviews that seem honest and objective. Try to avoid the reviews that read as if they were written by someone paid to write a review (avoid those, for example, with many exclamation points). The best anti aging creams will have many glowing reviews. Read these carefully.

The second method you can use for finding the right anti aging cream is to try out a product. Many products are offered these days in free trials. You can order a trial of a product and give it a go to see how it works for you. This is the best method for finding the right wrinkle cream for your skin. If the product works, you make an order for a full size product; if it doesn’t work, you move on to something else.

Do your research about ingredients and the product and give one a try. You’re sure to find the right one for you.
