The best anti wrinkle and aging creams for your lifestyle

When you’re a beauty blogger people always want you to name the best face cream for wrinkles, but the truth is that it’s really not that simple. There are a lot of things to take into account: how advanced those wrinkles are, your feelings about artificial ingredients, your skin type – and your lifestyle. There’s no single anti wrinkle cream that’s best for everyone – what’s important is finding the one that’s best for you.

If you’re a city dweller, the first thing you should think about is urban pollution, as this really takes a toll on the skin. These days, most of the problem stems from car emissions, and specifically from free radicals which settle on your skin and start a molecular chain reaction, damaging cell structure. The best way to combat these is with antioxidants, which bind to them and make them safe before they make contact with the skin itself. There are lots of these found in fruits, so try a fruity concoction like Nivea Pure & Natural Anti-Wrinkle Day Cream, which has burdock fruit extract and argan oil to protect against free radicals. It also provides deep hydration so your skin starts feeling better straight away, as well as stimulating collagen production to support the natural process through which you can remove wrinkle problems.

We all know today that smoking is bad for us in lots of ways, and quitting is one of the best things you can do to improve the health and appearance of your skin. If you just can’t quit, though, or if you’ve smoked for a long time and the damage is already visible, is there anything you can do? Yes, there is. What you need is a wrinkle remover that’s rich in vitamins A and C – two things your body doesn’t absorb very well when you smoke. Try Nicci Marie’s Ant-Aging Hyaluronic Acid Serum, which is reinforced with multiple vitamins and naturally improves skin elasticity. For best results, make sure you’re also eating plenty of fresh vegetables and keeping well hydrated.

If you’re a keen drinker, you’ll have a different set of problems. Frequent alcohol consumption can cause lasting dehydration and reddening of the skin as well as increasing apparent pore size and  triggering problematic immune reactions the lead to inflammation. Chamos Pomegranate Anti-Wrinkle Cream is a great all-rounder that’s rich in aloe vera to stimulate collagen production, hydrate and plump the skin. The pomegranate extract it contains helps to reduce pore size and both work together to reduce redness.

Many anti wrinkle creams now contain SPF to help you deal with that other big lifestyle contributor to skin damage, spending time in the sun. If this is something you like to do a lot, you’ll need to make sure you have a good one. MDSolarSciences Daily Anti-Aging Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Moisturizer is a wonderfully flexible product that’s gentle enough even for sensitive skin and offers both UVA and UVB protection. Green tea extract helps to repair skin damage, hyaluronic acid locks in moisture for plumper, firmer skin and vitamin C improves skin elasticity, helping to reduce the appearance of wrinkles over time. It even contains soothing chamomile so it feels great when it goes on.

Choosing the right anti wrinkle treatment for your lifestyle means you’ll get much better results overall and stand a better chance of fending off signs of ageing over time.
