Anti-Aging Wrinkle Creams with Hyaluronic Acid, Peptides and Retinol

Advanced moisturizing wrinkle creams will help restore a more youthful appearance and vibrancy to your face. Look for wrinkle cream formulas that combine high concentrations of skin care ingredients such as peptides, retinol, and hyaluronic acid. To avoid any possible health risk, be sure your anti-aging skin care products are all paraben free.

Choose skin care products that contain no parabens, fillers or fragrances and are never tested on animals.

Peptides Reduce Wrinkles

What are peptides? Do peptides have anti-aging skin care properties? Yes; here's how:

Peptides are amino acids that are bonded together like a chain to form collagen, a significant and fibrous component of your skin which gives it a strong foundation. Young people have substantial amounts of collagen, and this gives them tight, smooth skin. Older individuals with less collagen experience a thinning condition.

Peptides signal your skin to make more collagen. Because collagen is degraded by age and factors such as sunlight, and is not completely replaced, skin that is smooth and young looking gradually thins and becomes less smooth with time. This is why moisturizers and face creams that contain paraben free peptides are really effective at making fine lines disappear and skin become smoother and younger looking. 

Use a Peptide Cream for Beautiful Skin and your Anti-Aging Strategy

A new approach for reducing wrinkles with effective anti-aging formulas and enjoying a more youthful-looking face is to augment the collagen that has been lost over the years.  When collagen breaks down, specific peptides are released. Studies from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) show that these peptides send a signal that collagen has been lost and that more needs to be manufactured. This is what happens naturally when your skin is young.

Therefore, as part of a dedicated anti-aging routine, if you apply a good peptide wrinkle cream directly to your face, the ingredients penetrate and create the same effect; new collagen production is stimulated, making your facial skin less thin and lined. Matrixyl is the most commonly utilized signal peptide for skin care.

Peptides wrinkle creams include face creams, neck creams, day creams, night creams and anti-aging skin care products as a wrinkle reducing ingredient.

Hyaluronic Acid - the Super Moisturizer

Hyaluronic acid is one of the most important anti-aging skin moisturizing ingredients used in a  peptide cream. Hyaluronic Acid is found naturally in our bodies and is more abundant in our younger years. Notably, hyaluronic acid holds 1,000 times its weight in moisture, more than any other natural substance. This water-holding feature of hyaluronic acid will result in superior hydration, which in turn reduces the appearance of fine lines and creases.

Skin will lose its smooth appearance without enough Hyaluronic Acid. As we grow older, the levels of HA in our bodies diminish. Individuals past 50 years of age will have less than 50% of the HA they had in their younger years.  About one-half of the Hyaluronic Acid in our bodies is found in the upper layer of our skin and connective tissue. This is what gives younger skin its smoothness and beauty.  When skin loses moisture, it is just like a leaf on a tree that dries and falls. The skin loses suppleness, thins out, wrinkles and deep lines form, and the uniform appearance of health and beauty begin to fall away.  Applying a preparation containing a high-quality grade of HA to your skin promotes hydration.  Cells plump up and wrinkles smooth away, leaving an improved appearance.

Hyaluronic acid is typically offered as an anti-aging hyaluronic acid serum or as a cream.

Retinol is a Pure Form of Vitamin A

Retinol is a form of Vitamin A and is one of the best anti-aging skin care ingredients you can buy. Originally used by dermatologists and the skin care industry for acne patients, retinol stimulates new cell growth and unclogs pores. As an alternative to a peptide cream that will also exfoliate, as a face-cream ingredient with a small molecule size, retinol is able to penetrate deeply to smooth lines and creases, stimulate collagen production, increase elasticity and moisture, and repair damage. Retinol creams work differently than peptide creams and both retinol and peptides can be used in combination for a beautiful effect.

Retinol itself must be converted on the skin surface to retinoic acid; this is why it is important to use as high as possible a concentration. ReNew Youth™ retinol cream contains 1,000,000 International Units of retinol, the strongest available without a prescription.

The  benefit of applying retinol as opposed to retinoic acid is that retinol is less irritating, especially for older individuals; this is why retinoic acid is not available over the counter.

Some anti-aging skin care products with high levels of retinol can be irritating to the delicate tissues on your face. This potential issue can be eliminated with products formulated to include ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, jojoba oil, squalane, and apricot kernel oil.

As a cautionary note, any Vitamin A product, including retinoids, should not be used during pregnancy or while nursing because of potentially harmful effects. If this is the case, we recommend a good paraben free peptide wrinkle cream.

Other advantages of retinol are production of collagen and hyaluronic acid. Retinol is also an antioxidant and combats the free radicals that can damage and prematurely age your skin.

In summary, to maintain your youthful looks and reverse the signs of aging, look for these time-proven, paraben-free anti-aging skin care ingredients: peptides, retinol and hyaluronic acid.  Face creams and lotions that contain these wrinkle-fighting formulas will produce the most dramatic results.
