When you're young and your skin is smooth and radiant, you never think that you'll look in the mirror someday and see wrinkles threatening to etch themselves into your forehead. With the years, however, you laugh and you cry and you work and your face starts to show it. What can you do about it? Thankfully, in today's technology-based world, there are countless anti-wrinkle products that can work with your skin to reduce, erase, and prevent wrinkles. You just need to know which products to try so you can achieve the best results possible.

Wrinkle creams work with natural elements to restore youth and vitality to your skin. Most products try to work with your skin to combat and prevent wrinkles. The anti-aging market is a growing one, and despite the increasing popularity of anti-aging agents, many wrinkle creams haven't been thoroughly proven to reverse aging effects. Or at least the anti-aging efforts don't make as big of an effect on aging as the commercials may lead you to believe.

Many anti-wrinkle creams include the ingredient retinol, a substance that works to renew skin cells and reduce aging spots. However, most of the force behind these anti-aging gimmicks is pure commercialism and good advertising. If you really want an anti-wrinkle cream that has the best chance of working, see your doctor and get a prescription.

If you still want to try out the wrinkle creams you get from the local store, however, there are a couple of things to keep in mind. Some products I always purchase in the generic form; the generic form is less expensive and usually just as good. However, there are a few products that I refuse to buy in the generic, and wrinkle cream should be on that list. If wrinkle creams work best as prescriptions anyway, then you'd do best to go with the name brand products from the store.

According to some sources, the best name-brand products are, in order of preference, LifeCell Wrinkle Cream, Athena 7-Minute Lift, and Hydroderm. So if you're looking for the best results without going to the doctor for a prescription, check out these products. Good luck! And remember, even though the years may give you wrinkles, try to make those wrinkles the result of living a full and happy life!
