Mayo Clinic Reports on Wrinkle Creams

Submitted by Adriana Rae on October 19, 2006 - 07:23.

The Mayo Clinic is a good source of unbiased health information. They recently wrote an article about wrinkle creams and lotions. They say that,

If you're looking for a face-lift in a bottle, you won't find it in over-the-counter (nonprescription) wrinkle creams. But they may slightly improve the appearance of your skin, depending on how long you use the product and the amount and type of the active ingredient in the wrinkle cream.

The most common ingredients in anti-wrinkle creams are retinol, hydroxy acids, coenzyme Q10, copper peptides, kinetin and green tea extracts. They describe why each of these ingredients are thought to reduce wrinkles and they recommend four natural steps you can take to maintain a youthful skin. See their wrinkle cream article here.
