What is the best wrinkle cream? There is no exact answer to that. Some will have you believe it’s the most expensive product with the fanciest packaging. That’s just a marketing ploy. Let’s not forget that one product can work wonders are one person but do absolutely nothing for another. So, how can you tell which wrinkle cream works best?
Look at the ingredients.
There are a few ingredients that have been widely researched and proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines, sagging skin, crepey skin, and wrinkles. We’ll share the most effective ingredients so you can make an informed decision about which product is “the best.”
Retinoids are a group of vitamin A derivatives and retinol is perhaps the most widely used. Anti-wrinkle products that contain retinol can reduce:
- Sun damage
- Brown spots
- Fine lines
It also contributes to smoother skin and a more even texture by encouraging collagen production among skin cells. It is one of the most widely used ingredients for reducing signs of aging, which is why it's one of the main ingredients in GLÈ Good Night Cream. With 0.02% retinol, you can fight the signs of aging skin while you sleep.
There is a reason why dermatologists love vitamin C. This science-backed ingredient can do wonders for your skin, including:
- Prevent sun damage
- Improve skin texture
- Reduce wrinkles
- Reduce dark spots
- Reduce acne
When it comes to your skincare routine, you want to use an abundance of antioxidants, like vitamin C. Antioxidants can fight free radicals that occur externally (i.e., pollution) and inside your body. Whether internal or external, free radicals can be hazardous to the skin, causing wrinkles, dark spots, fine lines, and plenty more.
As a result, we recommend applying a product that contains vitamin C as the main ingredient to protect your skin and improve its overall appearance.
The latest buzzword in the skincare industry is…niacinamide. It can treat more skin conditions than we can list, and signs of aging are definitely among them.
Research shows this nutrient can increase ceramide production, which maintains the skin’s protective barrier. Protected skin is less susceptible to premature aging. In addition to treating fine lines and wrinkles, niacinamide can effectively reduce hyperpigmentation and acne. It’s no wonder GLÈ included niacinamide in their face moisturizer. With every dose of daily hydration, you also receive the benefits of niacinamide and chamomile.
While we’re talking about wrinkles, let’s discuss another tell-tale sign of aging: dark, puffy circles. The skin under your eyes is among the first to give away your age. It’s more fragile than the rest of your skin, therefore, demands extra attention. As a result, we always recommend applying an eye cream to this sensitive area instead of your moisturizer.
Glè added caffeine as one of the main ingredients in its under-eye cream for its shrinking effects. With consistent use, you can goodbye to puffiness and swelling. As an anti-inflammatory, caffeine can also brighten the skin, getting rid of the dark circles commonly attributed to lack of sleep or stress.
Vitamin E is not the most powerful anti-wrinkle ingredient on this list, but it’s an extremely moisturizing ingredient. As most people know, moisture makes wrinkles less noticeable. Vitamin E can also protect your skin against environmental stressors, such as UV damage and pollution. Along with niacinamide, it’s one of the main ingredients in Glè for Wrinkles. Each ingredient in their anti-wrinkle cream works synergistically to firm, hydrate, and improve the skin’s overall texture.
So, while we can't say what the best wrinkle cream is, we can say these are a few of the best anti-wrinkle ingredients to add to your skincare routine.
