Rational nutrition, facial gymnastics and skin massage will not be able to stop aging if you forget about the anti-wrinkle face cream. Only the active ingredients in the composition of the product will be able to restore the tone and elasticity of the skin, lost due to age-related changes, organic problems or external factors.
For care, you should also have a separate product for the area around the eyes - age-related changes affect the eyelids much earlier, the skin is thinner there, and the ingredients in the composition should be different.
Wrinkles are not just about age
Cosmetologists divide wrinkles into: deep - static, arising from age-related changes, and superficial - mimic, which appear:
- due to active facial expressions;
- loss of skin moisture;
- under the influence of environmental factors and temperature extremes.
Effective anti-wrinkle creams should contain:
- hyaluronic acid;
- natural oils;
- vitamins - C, E, B, which are antioxidants;
- enzymes …
Their action is to restore elasticity to the skin, moisturize, nourish. Products for the eyes should be lighter in texture than for the face. A good anti-wrinkle cream usually stimulates the growth of new cells, while producing a filler-like effect - it fills in the wrinkles from the inside out.
Currently, the ingredients of age creams designed to rejuvenate the face and have lost the attractiveness of the skin around the eyes are:
- Vitamin A - retinol - or retinoids, its derivatives. Retinol derivatives can stimulate collagen production at the cellular level. The most commonly used are: retinaldehyde, adapalene, tretinol and tretinoin;
- Hydrolyzed collagen - it is rarely injected for products around the eyes, it increases elasticity in the deep layers of the skin, tightens it. But the eyelids have a special structure, because the skin around the eyes is naturally thin, the substance of deep penetration will only increase the cost of a cosmetic product.
- Peptides. They have a nutritious effect.
- BHA and AHA are acids that accelerate skin replacement, exfoliate and accelerate regeneration. The most effective acids are salicylic and glycolic. For rejuvenation of the area around the eyes, they are used only during salon procedures.
- Agrireline and Ceramide NP, muscle relaxants - they help smooth wrinkles and relieve tension from certain facial muscles. They are part of elite expensive products for the face and around the eyes.
It is hardly possible to make a rating of the best and most effective anti-wrinkle creams for the face and eyes - everyone still chooses cosmetic products based on their own feelings.
