How Anti Aging Wrinkle Creams Work?
Hydration. Some work by maintaining moisture beneath your top skin to keep skin hydrated. As a result skin is “lifted”, thus, reducing wrinkles.
3D Crystals. Another mechanism of action would be through the use of three-dimensional crystals that make wrinkles less visible by reflecting light. Anti aging wrinkle products with this action do not really address any of the causes of wrinkles. They are just like an optical illusion, the wrinkles are there but they trick the eyes.
Antioxidants. Age defying creams with the antioxidants fight free radicals such as pollution, UV rays of the sun, smoking, that hasten aging.
Collagen Stimulation. There are age defying creams that stimulate the production of collagen, a natural protein that helps rejuvenate skin but diminishes with age.
AHA and BHA. These are chemicals that reduce wrinkles and fine lines through microdermabrasion. A stronger version of this treatment would require the administration of a dermatologist while creams have milder effects.
