Do Anti-Wrinkle Creams Work?

In the UK we collectively spend millions on anti-wrinkle creams, and one of the biggest questions that people ask in the beauty arena is if anti-wrinkle creams work. The truth is that every anti-wrinkle product is different and needs to be judged on its own merit. It is going to depend entirely on the ingredients within the product, and even then, different people will experience different results. At Nakin we pride ourselves on making amazing anti-ageing skincare that is also really kind to skin as it contains gorgeous natural plant actives. We openly admit that it does not work in the same way as some conventional anti-wrinkle creams that utilise retinol to smooth lines out. However, our Nakin products offer natural skincare that helps skin to look as good as it can naturally, and without using those harsh anti-wrinkle treatments like retinol.

Wrinkles are really hard to get rid of without resorting to invasive treatments like Botox and face lifts and so it is a big ask for a cream to be able to completely remove them. We have to be honest and say that although anti-wrinkle creams can help with wrinkles, they are not able to completely remove them permanently. At Nakin we have some of the best natural anti-wrinkle creams available and while they help to smooth and reduce the look of wrinkles, they are unable to eradicate them completely. They reduce and improve the look of wrinkles by smoothing skin out with the amazing natural actives such as hibiscus, as well as plumping and hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid. They also contain lots of gorgeous ingredients to prevent further skin damage and reduce the chance of new lines and wrinkles forming.

Wrinkles form when the collagen and elastin fibres in the skin are damaged, causing the skin to breakdown. The skin then starts to sag because it is weakened and less bouncy, and wrinkles appear. Lines and wrinkles happen naturally as we age and occur prematurely from sun damage and lifestyle choices. This weakening and sagging of the skin is a structural change and this is one of the reasons that anti-wrinkle creams find it hard to completely get rid of wrinkles.

There was an interesting study that was carried out in the USA by Consumer Reports Magazine, where they tested anti-wrinkle creams to see if they really worked. They tested 7 of the popular creams with a wide price range and including well-known brands. They had 79 people that tested them for 12 weeks, applying 2 different creams in the morning and evening, on different sides of the face. The results were that they did not make much of a difference except that one product did show results in about half of the testers. The results were not overly dramatic, but there was a noticeable difference. This experiment was a while ago and things have progressed a lot with anti-ageing creams, especially in the natural skincare field where we have lots more powerful wrinkle reducing plant actives.

The results show that we will all have a difference experience with an anti-wrinkle cream, as our skin is so unique. In any event deep wrinkles are hard to get rid of. One of the best ways to stop wrinkles is to prevent them appearing in the first place. Stay out of the sun as much as possible and when in the sun use a high protection sunscreen on all areas of exposed skin. Eat healthily and drink lots of water, plus use good skincare that cleanses, treats and moisturises skin morning and evening. Nakin have everything that you need for this, so take a look at our website to see our full range of gorgeous skincare. We have two exceptional products for improving the look of lines and this is our anti-wrinkle eye cream and anti-wrinkle serum. Both are filled with the best plant actives for health smooth fresh skin.
