Do Anti-wrinkle Creams Truly Work?

We’ve conducted several face cream reviews and have found that some anti wrinkle creams work more effectively than others. We are going to go over what to look for in an anti-wrinkle cream so you will understand how to select one that really works.

Coenzyme Q10

Coenzyme Q10 helps regulate cellular energy production. Studies show it smoothes wrinkles, especially round the eyes, and also helps protect the skin against sun damage.

Wrinkle reduction products containing coenzyme Q10 include Eucerin Q10 Anti wrinkle Delicate Skin Cr’me, ViriLife Naturals Night Fix Cream, and Glycolix Top-flight Facial Cream Ultra Lite.

Copper Peptides

Copper peptides stimulate collagen production, a protein that is one of the components of skin. They also enhance the effectiveness of antioxidants, which assist in protecting against skin damage caused by free radical compounds.

Wrinkle reducing products with copper peptides include Neutrogena Visibly Firm Night Cream, Skin Biology Skin Signals Cream, and Major Skin Care Oil Control Cream.

Extract From Green Tea

Green tea extract contains anti-oxidating agents that assist in protecting against skin damage caused by free radical compounds. It also decreases redness of the skin, improving appearance and the skins tone.

Wrinkle reduction creams containing extract from green tea include Nourish Green Tea and Aloe Wrinkle Serum, Proactiv Solution Green Tea Moisturizer, and Alba Botanica Aloe and Green Tea Oil Free Moisturizer.

Hydroxy Acids

Hydroxy acids, including alpha hydroxy acids, beta hydroxy acids and poly hydroxy acids, act as exfoliants, removing dead epidermal cells and help stimulate the growth of healthy new epidermal cells.

Wrinkle reduction creams with plenty of hydroxy acids include Ambi Skincare Fade Cream, Olay Anti-Aging Anti wrinkle Replenishing Night Cream, and La Therapie Cr’me Regenerante Regenerating Night Cream.


Kinetin is a plant extract that boosts the production of collagen and helps skin keep moisture, which decreases wrinkles. It is also an antioxidizing agent helping to prevent skin damage.

Anti-wrinkle creams with kinetin include Kinerase ProTherapy Cream and Almay Kinetin Skincare Rejuvenating Eye Treatment.

Retinol (Vitamin A)

Retinol is a form of Vitamin-A found in some anti wrinkle creams. It’s an antioxidant, a substance that neutralizes free radicals, which break down epidermis cells and cause wrinkles and other skin damage. Our facial cream reviews show that anti wrinkle creams with retinol may be the most effective of all creams available over the counter.

Wrinkle reducing creams containing large amounts of retinol include Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti-wrinkle Cream, L’oreal Advanced Revitalift Neck and Face Day Cream, and Garnier Ultra-Lift Deep Wrinkle Day Cream (with SPF 30).
