If you have been searching for a wrinkle cream that works, then the latest offering from Olay Skin Care should be of great interest to you. Scientific studies have shown that Olay Professional helps to reduce wrinkles in one month’s time.
In a controlled clinical study, a group of British women between the ages of 45 and 60 tested Olay Professional over a period of six months. They compared their results with those of a prescription anti-aging skin care product.
The results of the trial, published in the British Journal of Dermatology, showed that the ingredients in Olay Professional worked just as well as Retin-A (Retinoic Acid) in minimizing the appearance of facial wrinkles.
Olay guarantees visible results within 4 weeks, and women who have tried the product have great things to say about it. When it went on sale in America, the Olay Professional Skin Care line sold out immediately.
Designed for women over 40, it is one of the few wrinkle creams recommended by dermatologists. Eighty percent of dermatologists who tried the Olay Professional anti-aging skin care line said they would continue to use it.
Olay’s Anti-Wrinkle Kit includes Age Defying Day Moisturiser, Wrinkle Smoothing Cream and Deep Wrinkle Complex, which promises to reduce wrinkles in four weeks. Many users have reported a reduction in fine lines around the mouth and eyes, especially crow’s feet.
Oil of Olay makes a wide variety of skin care products, from facial cleansers and moisturizers to anti-wrinkle creams. Until now, their best wrinkle reduction cream has been Olay Pro-X Wrinkle Smoothing Cream.
This anti-aging cream is intended for use at night to gradually reduce fine lines and wrinkles on the face and neck. The active ingredient in Pro-X Wrinkle Cream is Vitamin B3, also known as Niacinamide.
Olay Professional Pro-X Eye Restoration Complex helps to rejuvenate skin around the eyes. This anti-aging eye cream contains antioxidants to restore eye skin, fight free radical damage and promote skin renewal and collagen growth.
Olay Total Effects Eye Transforming Cream is currently the best-selling eye cream in the USA. It is one of the best products to help to eliminate puffiness around the eyes as well as lighten dark circles.
Olay anti-wrinkle creams contain peptides, which trick your skin into making new collagen. Using a peptide in cream form boosts your skin’s production of collagen, thereby helping to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Another anti-aging ingredient in Olay skin care products is hyaluronic acid, which helps the skin retain moisture. The production of hyaluronic acid decreases as you age, so keeping your skin well-moisturized minimizes the appearance of wrinkles.
If you use the Olay Professional skin care line for 28 days, you should see a visible reduction in wrinkles and fine lines. It’s a more natural way to reduce facial wrinkles without having to experience the pain of Botox injections.
So far, reviews of Olay Professional have been positive, with many women saying their skin looks younger. The same can be said for Lancome Visionnaire Wrinkle Cream reviews. It goes without saying that women these days are fortunate to have so many excellent anti-wrinkle products available to them.
There are a vast number of wrinkle creams for sale, and it can be difficult to know which one is the most effective. One rule of thumb to follow: A more expensive name brand isn’t necessarily more effective than a less expensive one.
One of the best ways to research a wrinkle cream’s effectiveness is to look on Amazon.com and read the star ratings to see if customers are happy with the results. The key ingredient found in anti-wrinkle creams is called Retinol, or Retin-A. This compound has been shown to reduce wrinkles and fine lines when used over a period of time.
When you choosing an anti-wrinkle cream you should look carefully at the ingredients to verify the percentage of Retin-A it contains. Retin-A can cause irritation, redness and can be very drying to the skin, so you should use a weaker concentration until your skin becomes accustomed to it.
If you have sensitive or dry skin then start out by using a small amount of cream once a day so that you can see how your skin is reacts. If you don’t see any irritation, then you can go ahead and use it more often.
Also be sure to use a good moisturizer to guard against skin dryness. Some wrinkle creams contain Coenzyme Q which serves as a scavenger of free radicals and can can boost Retin-A’s beneficial effects.
A final note: If you use any anti wrinkle product containing Retinol, be sure to use a sunscreen whenever you go outside as it makes your skin much more sensitive to the sun’s damaging rays.
