I don't know many women (and men if they'll tell you) who don't use some sort of anti aging wrinkle cream, or at least think about it. Our culture is a culture of beauty. There are some cultures where the more wrinkles you have the more respected you are because of your wisdom. Not so in America (and perhaps particularly not so in Los Angeles!). We're slapping on creams and going to get facials and microdermabrasion all the time. But this isn't necessarily bad. In fact, if you get on the right regimen, it's the best thing you can do for your skin.

Ingredients for Anti Aging Wrinkle Cream

Different ingredients do different things to your skin--all tend to work, it'll just depend which ones take to your skin and which don't. Collagen is a big ingredient in lots of creams. Collagen is a protein that strengthens skin and internal organs. It's what gives your skin shape. Old, saggy skin doesn't have much collagen. This protein in a cream is great, but it needs to be nourished with vitamin C. Our bodies cannot make vitamin C on its own, so make sure you're taking supplements. It'll help your collagen cream be more effective.

Other big ingredients are antioxidants. There are many substances that provide essential antioxidants. Some of the key ingredients that you'll see are green tea, pomegranate, flax seed, vitamin C and others. Even if you don't have these ingredients in your anti aging wrinkle cream, I highly suggest making sure they are a part of your daily routine in some form or another.

You'll also see some ingredients that will help your skin soften and be more pliable. Vegetable oil, jojoba oil, aloe vera, and vitamin E are just a few. Looking for these in addition to antioxidants and collagen in your anti aging wrinkle cream will make for a great routine.
