Natural Wrinkle Creams – A Few Important Facts

Natural wrinkle creams include products like Avena, Luminous, Boscia and Juara. They are commonly sold as alternatives to chemical-based wrinkle creams found at over-the-counter at cosmetic retail outlets as well as through doctor recommendations. Unlike the chemicals such as hydroxy acids found in more mainstream products, natural wrinkle creams typically won’t create burning sensations, sun sensitivity or maternal complications produced by harsh chemicals like tretinoin. The downside is that natural wrinkle creams may not provide the “immediate results” some customers are looking for. They are best used as part of a general skin-supplemental plan to reduce signs of aging over the long-term.

Some of the ingredients found in natural wrinkle creams include kinetin, which is a natural plant and seaweed compound. Clinical studies have shown that kinetin promotes the restoration of collagen in skin cells. A lack of collagen may be the number one cause of aging signs, as when collagen and elastin levels drop, sagging naturally occurs. Other common ingredients include vitamin C, honey, and tea-extracts, all of which are known to have therapeutic elements. Unfortunately, none of these ingredients could scientifically provide “over night” results. So beware of false advertising claims that say otherwise.

But, over a long-term period, these ingredients may be quite effective. This is why, when choosing natural wrinkle creams, pick one based around the over-all level of nutrients that the product is providing. If your only goal is to try and remove-wrinkles over-night, you’re better off with an over-the-counter cosmetic chemical. Although, these products only create only the illusion of wrinkle removal by slightly swelling the skin, therefore temporarily masking the wrinkle. Although some chemicals, like retinol, are designed for long-term anti-aging use, there remains controversy about applying chemicals over long-periods of time to the skin. This is why natural wrinkle creams remain a viable alternative.

In addition to natural wrinkle creams, consult with a dermatologist about an overall strategy to reduce signs of aging. This may include dietary changes, lowering stress levels, and minimizing sun exposure. Regardless of these options discussed thus far, it’s still best to accept aging as an inevitable process that every human being goes through. Biochemical changes in the body will still result in aging, no matter how much kinetin, or retinol or other substances are used. However, emotional health, physical health, and dermatological health may combine to turn back the clock years or even decades. And, one final option remains in the form of surgical treatment. A face-lift or laser reduction surgeries are the fastest way to actual short-term results, but these options are not for everyone. Consult with a dermatologist to figure out the best strategy that fits your lifestyle and preferences.
