Wrinkle Creams: Your Guide To Younger Looking Skin
If you’re looking for a face-lift in a bottle, you probably won’t find it in over-the-counter wrinkle creams.
Alpha hydroxy acids, beta hydroxy acids and poly hydroxy acids are exfoliants – substances that remove the upper layer of old, dead skin and stimulate the growth of smooth, evenly pigmented new skin. It helps reduce water loss in the skin and may improve skin elasticity.
Nonprescription wrinkle creams contain lower concentrations of active ingredients than do prescription creams. Dry skin turns plump skin cells into shriveled ones, creating fine lines and wrinkles. As a result, skin begins to sag and wrinkle prematurely.
A dermatologist can help you create a personalized skin care plan by assessing your skin type, evaluating your skin’s condition and recommending products likely to be effective.
