  1. Retinoid

Retinoid is a derivative of Vitamin A. It’s known in the skincare industry as a remover of wrinkles and fine lines as well as a cure-all remedy for all skin problems, including saggy and dull skin, brown spots and flaky skin.  Dermatologists and skin experts agree that this form of retinol is one of the best anti aging ingredients there are.

It works by accelerating cell turnover, eliminating dead skin cells that lead to dryness. The ingredient also functions in boosting elastin and collagen production, increasing cell repair efficiency by penetrating deeper into the skin.  Finally, retinoids also improve circulation through stimulation blood vessel formation for a healthier skin.

  1. Hydroquinone

This ingredient is another popular skincare ingredient that can get rid of blotches, sunspots and mottled skin appearance.  The ingredient is also included in many beauty products meant for bleaching the skin.  It can also help in fading hyperpigmentation through blocking the enzyme, which stimulates the production of melanin.

  1. Antioxidants

One of the most effective in this group is vitamin C, which can help you prevent spots, wrinkles and certain skin disorders and cancers.  These ingredients are able to turn free radicals into harmless compounds to stop them from destroying your skin and its elastin and collagen. Additionally, these compounds also stimulate cell repair and collagen production.

  1. Sunscreen

If you want a more effective wrinkle cream, you may want to find one that contains sun protection, which can provide skin with added layer against the harmful rays of the sun, which speeds up the aging process.

Sunscreen is one of the most vital skincare ingredients to look for if you want to protect your skin from wrinkling, blotching and sagging. It works with its sunscreen molecules, which filter, scatter or absorb UV light, keeping it off your face.

It also protects the skin by shielding it from external factors, which ruin collagen and elastin. These two keep your skin firm and elastic, making it look younger, longer.

They can make your skin radiant or glowing, giving it that healthy and young appearance. In the group includes glycolic acid that can add radiance, fade blotches, smooth lines and allow absorption of other skincare products.  So when looking for face cream, check out for those that contain AHAs.
