Our skin tends to change, as we grow old. And one of the main problems we face is wrinkles. They are visible fine lines on the skin. It is natural that these fine lines will occur as we grow old, but with the help of the right cream and lotion, they can be prevented.
Now when it comes to buying the right cream, how do you know what will work on your skin, and what will not? There are billions of creams and lotions out there and not all are effective.
First of all, you have to know that the thing that causes wrinkles is the free radicals. Thus, you need a cream that will protect your skin from these free radicals. The cream should also have the ability to stimulate the production of collagen.
Another reason for wrinkles to occur is because through time the skin loses the elasticity. It is better to find a cream that is also a good moisturizer. That will keep the skin well moisturized and that will actually improve the elasticity of the skin.
While you are buying such cream, see if they contain petrolatum. Even though the product claims that it is good for the skin, but in reality, it does not have much of a positive effect on the skin. The main idea of such a cream is to improve the elasticity of the skin and petrolatum certainly does not help doing so.
A good anti wrinkle cream will contain plant oils. This oil is almost the same as the sebum. They are very good moisturizer.
If you are looking for something absolutely natural then you will not have to look far as you have the thing right at home. There are certain oils you can apply on the skin directly and they work as an excellent anti wrinkle moisturizer. They are castor oil and coconut oil. Apply any of these oils on the skin before going to bed at night. In the morning, wash it off with a good face wash. Do not wear them out in the sun.
Last but not the least, if you are buying creams from the stores, go for the ones that are entirely organic.
