Which is the best anti-wrinkle cream?
There are many anti-wrinkle creams on the market. Some claim to reduce under eye wrinkles, others claiming to reduce the appearance of fine lines on the face.
What makes an anti-wrinkle cream effective?
A study in 2005 evaluated the effectiveness of an “anti-wrinkle cream” on the subjective appearance of wrinkles. It showed a large proportion of patients were very happy with the effect of the anti-wrinkle cream on their skin.
We find that the products that have made our skin feel smooth and firm usually contain Vitamin A, lactic and salicylic acids and Niacinamide really helps with having an even skin tone.
However, we are not convinced that anti-wrinkle creams targeting the under-eye area are particularly effective. A randomised control trial in 2007 compared eye cream to over-the-counter moisturiser. The results suggested there was no significant difference between the expensive eye cream and moisturiser.
