The Ingredients to Look for in Wrinkle Repair Products

March 23, 2018 Cosmetics

Aging is a natural process and wrinkles are some side-effect of growing older. You can, however, delay the signs of aging and stay wrinkle free for a long time when you use the right Wrinkle repair products.

Here are few ingredients any good wrinkle control product should have:

Coenzyme Q10

The main cause of wrinkles is loss of collagen, a kind of protein from your skin. Collagen helps the skin bounce back every time you use your facial muscles. The lesser the collagen, the lesser will be the elasticity. Coenzyme Q10 is an enzyme naturally produced in every cell of your body. It helps neutralize free radicals from the skin, which is the main reason for reduced collagen. As you age, your body produces lesser and lesser Coenzyme Q10. To compensate this, you can use Wrinkle repair products that are nourished with this enzyme.


Retinol is also commonly known as Vitamin A1. This is an excellent antioxidant that prevents UV rays and free radicals from the atmosphere from affecting you. When applied externally to the skin, it improves cell turnover and improves production of collagen. This again helps control wrinkles.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E blocks free radicals from damaging your skin. This also improves hydration, thereby preventing over dryness. Dryness also results in wrinkles. Wrinkle repair products with Vitamin E also help fight acne, pigmentation and calms sensitive skin.


Peptides are amino acid short link molecules. These help your skin multiple ways!
Peptides push your skin to make more collagen
They make skin firmer, clearer and wrinkle free
Some varieties of peptides are natural Botox sources
The molecular structure of peptides make them easier to penetrate deep into the skin
They help deliver nutrients like copper and magnesium to your skin

Hydroxy acids

There are three kinds of hydroxy acids commonly used in the cosmetic industry.
Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA)
Beta Hydroxy Acids
Poly Hydroxy Acids
Amongst these, AHAs are very popular additives in Wrinkle repair products. If you have been suffering from wrinkles, fine lines, open pores, and pigmentation, this ingredient can help you. It exfoliates and removes the outer derma layer. This layer is usually filled with open pores, clogged up skin cells and dark spots. By removing the skin layer, your body is encouraged to produce fresher cells and a cleaner, smoother textured surface. Most of the over-the-counter creams and serums have around 2 to 10% of AHAs. If the amount is more, it might cause skin burns and might need medical supervision.
