What are the different types of anti-wrinkle creams?

First of all, there are anti-wrinkle creams that have antioxidant properties, thanks to the presence of vitamins C, E or selenium, for example.

They protect the skin from external aggressions (pollution, UV, etc.)

Then, there are creams based on fruit acids, known as AHA, used mainly for the light peeling effect they provide, which gives a brightness to the skin, and the stimulation of collagen production they allow.

Finally, there are creams based on vitamin A acid, the most powerful molecule in the treatment of wrinkles, but also the least tolerated.

This type of cream is only available with a doctor's prescription. Therefore, there are often related creams - composed of retinol, a derivative of vitamin A - that are better tolerated.

Recommended for use from age 35. These different categories of anti-wrinkle creams must also be adapted according to skin type, as not all skin types have the same needs.

How exactly do you choose the cream according to your skin?

Thin, thin skin should preferably use vitamin C-based anti-wrinkle creams (which promote collagenisis) to restore density, and possibly creams containing vitamin A derivatives.

Younger skin (20-30 years old) may also use this type of cream as a preventive measure.

For thicker skin, in the case of people who smoke or have been exposed to the sun a lot, creams with fruit acids are recommended for their peeling effect, which thins the horny layer of the skin and restores the glow to these skins that are usually a little dull.

When the skin is damaged by time and wrinkled, we will resort to creams based on vitamin A acid if it is tolerated, if not to related creams, so that they act in depth.

What is your advice on how to use these anti-wrinkle creams?

For women who are exposed to pollution, UV rays, smoke, apply an antioxidant cream in the morning to protect the skin during the day, and apply the anti-wrinkle cream (based on vitamin A or fruit acids) at night. All this in a clean skin.

Finally, it is necessary to apply these products regularly and to alternate the types of products used, every six months for example.

It is important not to always use the same product, as there is often a rapid effect on the skin at first, then a plateau effect, a moment when no more benefit is obtained: then it is worth changing the product. In general, it is also necessary to use precise gestures to improve the effectiveness of the treatment.

Is price a guarantee of quality?

Yes, in the sense that if certain creams are expensive, it is because the laboratories that market them have a large budget dedicated to research and formulation of creams with high performance and efficiency molecules.

But not in the sense that the profit obtained is not high enough compared to a "normal" cream to justify such a price difference.

In other words, if one cream is three times more expensive than another, it may be a little more effective, but certainly not three times more effective.

Finally, do anti-wrinkle creams work?

Yes, considering that it is a local treatment that can slightly reduce wrinkles.

But anti-wrinkle products are only cosmetically effective: they provide an aesthetic result, a better appearance of the skin... Which is good enough!
