The effectiveness of any anti-wrinkle cream or wrinkle-lift product depends on the type of wrinkles, the constituents present in the products and the extent of damage already done to your skin -- whether your skin has already been subjected to a lot of rough and harsh handling and inadequate care, resulting in many deep set wrinkles.
A good anti-wrinkle cream or wrinkle-lift product will usually contain loads of antioxidants and skin repairing and skin rejuvenating ingredients. Most anti-wrinkle creams or wrinkle-lift products contain Retinol or vitamin-A (which is an antioxidant that helps to keep the skin supple and damage free and is necessary for the healthy growth and renewal of the skin cells), vitamin-C (which is an important antioxidant, that helps in the repair of skin from within by building the collagen content). Collagen is a natural protein found in our body which helps in maintaining optimum skin elasticity, but which gets severely depleted with aging, causing the skin to become sagged and wrinkled.
Other essential ingredients include vitamin-E and beta-carotenes to maintain your skin in a healthy and youthful state. Alpha hydroxyl acids, ploy hydroxy acids and beta hydroxy acids are also usually present in most of the anti-wrinkle creams and wrinkle-lift products because they aid in exfoliating the top layer of the skin, making it appear even more fresh and glowing.
