Do Over The Counter Creams Really Help Fine Lines and Wrinkles? Many skincare products on the market today claim to slow down, and even reverse, the aging process by ridding your face of fine lines and wrinkles caused by time, repetitive facial expressions, and sun exposure. Consumers happily part with a hefty chunk of disposable income each year, in exchange for creams and other products promising to eliminate their fine lines and wrinkles. Are these products worth it? The answer is… they may help, to a certain degree, though they are far from the fountain of youth. The secret in buying good anti wrinkle products is twofold: 1) using a product with a widely accepted active ingredient, and 2) using that product consistently over a period of time. By becoming aware of which ingredients are the most beneficial; picking quality products that contain one or more of those ingredients; then incorporating those products into your daily beauty routine; you can expect to see results in reducing the appearance of your fine lines and wrinkles.

Some Key Ingredients for reducing fine lines and wrinkles: So, which ingredients should you be on the lookout for? Here are some of the biggest you will find available on the market:
Retinol- A vitamin A derived antioxidant.
Hydroxy Acids- A synthetic form of fruit acids that act as exfoliants.
Coenzyme Q10- A nutrient that acts as a regulator for cell energy production.
Other Antioxidants- Antioxidants such as Vitamin C and Vitamin E.
Copper Peptides- The trace element copper, combined with bits of protein that stimulate collagen production and aid wound healing, and possibly amplify the effects of antioxidants.
Kinetin- A growth factor in plants, this ingredient is thought to work by stimulating collagen production and moisture retention.
Tea Extracts- Green tea in particular is known as an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, though oolong and black tea are also used.

Caution: Some of these ingredients may produce irritation to the skin or make the skin sensitive to sunlight (e.g. hydroxy acids), while others have warnings (retinol should not be used during pregnancy). Be sure to read each product’s indications to limit potential adverse reactions. You can minimize damage to your skin by moisturizing, limiting sun exposure, always wearing sunscreen outdoors, and not smoking (yes, smoking causes premature wrinkles).
